We currently live on East Coast of USA. We want to buy property, around 10000 meters square or so, in Ecuador and build a house or Possibly with existing house. Not in town centers. Higher in mountains, but within 15-20 mins or so of town. We have a young daughter will be starting school in few years so need town near by with good school. We were there in July as a vacation as well as a exploritory trip. We fell in love with two areas. Banos and Riobamba. We love the view of volcanos, both areas were green, climates, and people. With our guides help, asking everyone we saw in the Riobamba area we found a property we wanted to buy. Spoke to owners and settled on a price. Luckily we hired a lawyer before leaving to come home. Long story but it has fallen thru. We are now about 4000 miles away and frustrated. I know best way is word of mouth to look for property, but is there anything we can do from here? Craigslist is very limited for those areas. We plan on coming back in November or December again to look for properties, but would love to have some lined up to look at so as to save time. Anyone know of any available property or avenues to try to look? Love those areas. Especially Banos. But willing to look elsewhere. Just in highlands, green.
