    BA Real Estate market to take a dive before the end of the year.

    Totally agree, Interesting interview with Luke Gromen on January 14 Macro Voices podcast - talks about how the dollars reserve currency status has hallowed out the US manufacturing base.

    simultaneous transfer / escritura

    So it appears the transfer occurred pretty much straight away in the your case. I read that the transfer could take 1-2 days within the US, bank to bank.

    Is real estate price converted to pesos at purchase?

    I might be wrong but swear I read a thread that included pretty much step by step instructions for buying an apartment in BA, wiring the dollars, etc. Searching through can't find it. I saw this one in the past and it has good information but does anyone recall a more detailed post? Thanks!

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

"Trump may just continue to string out this meritless litigation in order to fleece his own supporters of their money and use it in the coming years to pad his own lifestyle while teasing a...

    Buying gold

    If things get really bad you are going to want the major country silver one ounce coins as well. Better for transactions and making change if your gold one ounce coins become worth $5000 plus each.
