    Buenos Aires seems safer and nicer than Los Angeles, what happened to the United States?

    So we could end up with a comparison of current US society to current European (EEC) societies to current Argentina. At least the discussion started with the somewhat smaller comparison between LA and BA. My perspective is that of the European citizen. A few remarks: 1) Some already said that...

    Should we come to Argentina this Dec/Jan?

    Since the start of the pandemic my wife went 3 times to Argentina, from Europe. The first time it was all quite new. The second time, June 2021, the flight TO Argentina was changed 5 times. Still she 'lost' less than a week. The last time, this month, all went smoothly. At this moment there are...

    Buy a house in BA?

    I think nobody can deny that by the regular measures, e.g. price-to-income ratio, Argentine real estate is hugely overvalued. The above is a view from a totally different perspective, 'just' comparing housing prices between country X and Argentina. On that basis housing prices in Argentina can...

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    As far as I know, (and at least for me) it seems to be better to stay taxable NOT in Argentina. Of course taxes need to be paid on the ownership of the house in BA, but being taxed over income and assets in Argentina seems very unattractive, e.g. because of the low threshold for the highest...

    Buy a house in BA?

    Maybe one moment we will put a little plunge pool on the roof terrace or so. We'll for sure start with a nice outside shower. But we'll feel great anyway staying the European winter in Buenos Aires! And part of the European summer we'll spend on some Greek island, always in the same rental with...

    Buy a house in BA?

    Don't be too optimistic about the proximity to Capital Federal. Traffic gets worse every year with all the new barrios cerrados they are developing in the north. And I wouldn't say Maschwitz actually has a town centre, it's too small for that. Apart from that all, I do understand people that...

    Buy a house in BA?

    Actually my wife and I have just a month ago agreed on buying a beautiful old house in Caballito, very nicely renovated. We know the owners very well, long time friends with the family and very nice people. I won't say we get a bargain, but this is not about return on investment. It's about...

    Travel to Europe?

    I wouldn't worry too much about that Renzi. It's gonna be different than last year, with the vaccination programs starting to show their effects. @Jeff: what kind of place/holiday you're looking for in Southern Europe? What you've already seen/really would like to see for a first time? And...

    Renting a house in BA without permanent residency?

    Loads of information, abbreviations etcetera. Thank you all! I am trying hard to digest all the feedback. A couple of preliminary ideas/conclusions: 1. Good point about the basic choice to make between legal and illegal. I am not so much trying to walk an illegal road. My focus is more on...

    Renting a house in BA without permanent residency?

    Thanks. Sounds like all is ok as long as I am staying not more than 6 months so I don't become a resident. This global wealth and income tax situation, that's what i want to avoid.

    Renting a house in BA without permanent residency?

    Thanks Steve. Ok, the last bit you said I hadn't read before. I just understood that temporary residency would make a DNI possible. And since I plan to stay each year a couple of month.... I didn't know about the 'digital nomad' visa until you wrote about it. Just googled it and read that it...

    Renting a house in BA without permanent residency?

    Hi - I just registered for this forum, although I have been reading and enjoying posts on this forum already for years. My long-term girlfriend is a resident from Argentina, I am residing and working in Holland. My case: I am considering renting a house full time in Argentina from someone I...
