Questions About Purchasing Property and Living in Nicaragua
I wanted to thank those who responded to my post it has given us some insight. Between that and thru conversations i have recently had with others i am getting a fair picture in my mind of what to expect. Actually one of the options we were considering was picking out an area we want to stay and renting for a year or so while we get a feel for what is available as far as a permanent home and what is an appropriate price. Also with the election pending in a year or so it may be wise to wait to see what occurs, hopefully the country will stay on the course it has taken over the last few decades and continue to slowly blossom into the potential flower of Central America it can some day be.
As far as a little intolorance by the neighbors for being a same gender couple is concerned, we are both thick skinned and a little name calling or the cold shoulder from the neighbors is never a bother. It actually comes with the territory, One learns quickly who the truly nice people are and who are only fooling themselves. My real concern was if it was going to cause issues trying to buy supplies or be a cause for concern about violent behavior.
again thanks! your continued input is appreciated. We will be arriving on May 8th and staying for at least three weeks in the area we like... yours Jennifer.
My partner and I are seriously considering relocating to Nicaragua for
our retirement and have two basic questions to ask.
The first is probably the same one asked a thousand times a day. Is it
safe to invest in property in Nicaragua? What I really mean is it
possible to purchase land and be reasonably assured that the title is
clear and also that the political climate has changed enough that someone
relocating from the United States feel secure that their investment is
safe from being “confiscated”?
My second question is one of tolerance to diversity. We are a same
gender couple, both female. Although we do not flaunt it we are simply
worried about our safety. Is there a reasonable tolerance for persons
of our nature in Nicaragua?
We will be arriving on May 8th to begin our search for our new home.
We are seeking a place in the northern part of the country somewhere
near Ocotal or westward from there. We have fond that region to be
quite beautiful, peaceful and removed from the more urban areas.
Our goal is to become a part of the culture, not to lock ourselves
away in some compound full of retired Americans. We are both computer
programmers who want to live a quiet lifestyle, grow a few vegetables
and I especially want to keep some bees. My father was a beekeeper and
I loved helping him out when he was alive.
Both of us want to give something back to the community, perhaps teach
a little at the local school once we have mastered the language enough
to communicate reasonably well.
There you have it. What I am seeking are just honest answers not
emotional rhetoric from someone who is angry about one thing or another.
Thank you for your time in advance for answering my questions.
