The property is in town, but in a quiet little “eddy” off the main flow. Close to services, including restaurants and stores.

This land is titled.  It was titled many years ago by the bank Morgan & Morgan.  This is good news.

If this were a right of possession (ROP) property, as a foreigner, you could not title it.  That is because foreigners are not allowed to own titled land within 10 kilometers of the border. And this property is less than 10 kilometers from the Costa Rica border.  (Find out about the Panama 10K rule here.)

But because the property is already titled, it is fully and completely legal for a foreigner to have the title transferred into their name.  As I said good news.

Morgan & Morgan long ago abandoned its ownership of this and other properties in San Vicente.

If you want the title of this property in your name it is a simple matter to transfer the title from Morgan & Morgan to your name.  It is an optional step.  If you want to do it, your lawyer can handle this whole transaction for you. Others have done this easily and successfully before.

Much like getting a property titled for the first time, there is a cost involved.  It is similar to what it would cost to title an ROP property, if you, as a foreigner, were allowed to do so in this location.

Property Tax Exempt

Another piece of good news is that this property will soon be exempt from property taxes.

On October 18, 2017, Panama passed a huge Property tax reform.  Starting in Jan. 2019, you will own zero property taxes on your primary home if you bought it for under $120,000.

So this property would be tax-exempt. (Assuming it is your primary residence in Panama).

You can find out more about 2017 Panama property tax reform here. 

Expat Community

Another bonus for this location is that it is close to 2 weekly expat gatherings: Sundays at Tsunami & Wednesdays at Big Daddy’s Beach Club & Hotel.

This property is only a 3 to 5 minute stroll from both of these friendly and supportive expat gatherings.

I’m pleased to say I started the Wednesday get together at Big Daddy’s. I am very happy that it has evolved into a supportive Whatsapp group as well.

Money Back Guarantee

However, when you decide to buy, I want you to know that we offer what I don’t think anyone else in Panama offers – a chance to change your mind.

We give you 30 days from the time of signing the purchase agreement to change your mind about buying a particular piece of property.

No questions asked.

We will give you a full and fast refund (minus closing costs).

All our properties are throughly vetted and are priced well. Therefore,we don’t think you will take us up on this refund offer, but it is there if you need it.

Financing + Air Fare Bonus

We even sweeten the deal in 2 ways:

1) If you buy one of our properties, we will pay your airfare you spent to get to Panama. (FYI, If you do change your mind and get a refund, it will be minus the cost of the airfare).

2) We offer financing on many of our properties. Since it can be hard & time consuming for individual foreigners to qualify for a bank mortgage this is a great perk. Click the “Why Buy From Us” link below for details on our financing.

The satellite photo looks the property pinches beach access from the street. That would not be a friendly start for a new resident.
As your lowest priced property, why is it less than similar ones?
