With 2017 behind us finally, we’re entering 2018 with a renewed commitment to reinvent and improve our online media content. We’ve been working really hard the past 5 months to launch tons of new material at the beginning of the new year. We’ve also got 3 big announcements to make.
We launched a brand new version of the San Juan Live Real Estate Marketplace. Now you can search for property by price, type or region. Within each of our property listings, you’ll find multiple photos and in some cases videos of the property, a detailed property description, an information brochure, (if available), a topographical map or house blue print, feature highlights, and a map identifying the exact GPS coordinates of the property so you can actually zoom in and see it online.
And best of all, we make it super easy for Buyers and Sellers to communicate directly through each property listing. If you’re interested in property, be sure to check out the new website and search for property here.
We’ve created an Investor Education Series to guide you through the step-by-step process of purchasing property in Nicaragua. Our free investor series provides valuable information and tools such as a free neighborhood guide, a residency report, a closing checklist for non-Spanish speakers, and a sales contract template. It’s delivered via email over several weeks and includes bonus PDF downloads, reports, video interviews, coupons and articles.
3. Welcome Bastin Vrancken to San Juan Live
And we’re most excited to announce that Bastin Vrancken has officially joined San Juan Live as a partner. Bastin moved from Holland to San Juan del Sur in 2011 with his wife Debbie Bruin. They originally came to Nicaragua to volunteer, travel and surf but eventually took over the responsibilities of directing the Casa Llanta Fund non-profit. Bastin co-founded Manos Unidas, a cooperative for adults with disabilities to make and sell handmade tote bags from re-purposed rice bags. He’s been instrumental in our new website launch and will be hosting our 2018 relocation tours.
