The Top Portal for Cuenca Real Estate

Cuenca, with its cobblestone streets and stately mansions, has become one of the world´s top retirement destinations. The city, Ecuador´s third largest, is home to approximately 350,000 citizens, and an estimated 4,000 expats. It is an extremely walkable city, and expats often gather near the Parque Abdon Calderon for coffee or drinks. The city is flush with both modern conveniences including 18 hospitals, and with 4 major universities attracting students from all over the world, it is often referred to as the Athens of the Andes.

Cuenca´s temperatures range from 50-75 degrees Fahrenheit, and is often hailed as the city of eternal spring. For those who love the outdoors, Cajas National Park offers incredible year round hiking. Most expats live extremely well on $2000 a month.

If you are seeking a rich cultural life with international symphonies and ballets and a mix of the historic and the modern, come see what makes Cuenca such a special place to retire.

The opportunity to rent a furnished traditional home in Challuabamba is almost as rare as spotting the infamous Himalayan snow leopard! Well, perhaps not that rare, but in the office, not one of us could remember the last time we saw a chance to rent a large home in the hills of Challuabamba, on a large piece of land, that was fully furnished. So, we were thrilled to get the opportunity to present this rare rental opportunity, 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home that sits on 3,000 square meters (3/4 of an acre) of land in one of the quietest parts of Challuabamba. In addition to the bedrooms and bathrooms, this traditional home has a study, a full dining room, a kitchen, a laundry room, a covered outdoor games area with hammocks, a pool table, a brick barbecue, and lots of green space with fruit trees and beautiful gardens. It even has a fully furnished guard house.

Yes, there still are some GREAT fixer-uppers left in Cuenca A lot of people come to Cuenca thinking, “We’ll find an older unit for low price and fix it up.” Well, those days are practically gone in Cuenca. But that doesn’t mean that one doesn’t pop up every once in a while! And that’s what we have here. Imagine, a 2500 square foot penthouse, on Gran Colombia, right on the Tranvia route, for only $249.000! That’s almost unheard of. This older unit has great bones and only needs a minor remodel to make it the top of the line unit you want to live in. Or better yet, buy it, move your stuff in, and just be happy with the great deal you got! Because this condo has everything you’ll need as it sits. Like we said, it’s a large 2500 square foot space. It has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, and a wonderful second level whole floor terrace (that you can turn into whatever you’d like) It has lots of light throughout and even built-in closets in the bedrooms. So, you can buy this condo with lots of room, in a fabulous neighborhood, that you can remodel to your own tastes, or you can move right in today. For only $249.000. Yes, good deals still pop up in Cuenca every once in a while!
