In this economic climate one has to be innovative in order to survive and a friend of mine has taken this idea to a new level here in Panama. Seems everyone has assets, but cash is another story so this may be an appropriate alternative. Maybe an exchange of property would suit you if you are unable to sell in these tough economic times. Here is some information from Tom's website and some links. I will be curious to see how this works out.
Panama Advisory International Group is pleased to announce the launch of Panama Property Exchange, a forum set up for property owners in Panama and other parts of the world who have an interest in exchanging their properties.
A development project in Panama for one in the Florida, an eco-resort site on an island in Panama for an estate home on the coast of South Carolina. Maybe a condo in Panama City for one in Miami. A hunting ranch in Texas for a large oceanfront property in Panama.
The list grows day by day with like minded people who understand like kind exchanges. Please let us know how we might be of service and what questions we might be able to answer for you to see if your property might be of interest.
