Forgive me for doing a little promotion of one Free Individual's features, but it is being neglected. Freedom for many individuals is going to mean living somewhere other than under the oppressive government they are now living under. There are many resources available for helping one choose the best place to live, but there are none better than
The Free Individual features a new International Living page every weekday, and usually on Saturday too. Just a click and you will find features like the following:
Salta, Argentina: Modern Conveniences and Apartments For $55,000
I looked at a brand-new one-bedroom apartment for just $55,000. It was on the edge of town in one of the city's nicest neighborhoods. In the same area (Barrio Grand Bourg) I saw a large 2,580-square-foot house going for an asking price of $210,000. It sat on a well-manicured lawn and even had a heated pool.
If you'd rather live in the historic district, you'll find properties a bit more expensive. Prices are about twice those of the outlying areas, but it may be well worth it from a lifestyle perspective.
The best buy I found in the historic center was a 1,600-square-foot apartment located a few blocks from the main plaza. In a modern building, it includes a large terrace with a view of the city and mountains. The asking price is $200,000.
Buy on Ecuador's Pacific Coast From $45,000
Close to Salinas-and only a few blocks from the beach-a three-bedroom, two-bath home with a large patio is on the market for $45,000.
Also for $45,000, you can get a two-bedroom, two-bath house in Ballenita. That doesn't get you an ocean-view, but the home is comfortable and ready to move into.
I saw a brand-new home in Ballenita, set on a hilltop with ocean views. The three-bedroom, three-bath house has an open-plan living and dining area. It's on the market for $124,000. Ballenita is starting to attract more foreign buyers. It's close to Salinas, but with lower-priced homes-and the hillside setting gives panoramic views of the ocean.
