I moved to Buenos Aires a year and a half ago for work and things were going so well that I decided to buy an apartment. However suddenly my job went "poof" so here I am looking for a new job, however if I don't find something that I like to do here, in the next few months, I will probably move back to the U.S. even though I love Buenos Aires. My question is, how complicated is it to sell and send the money back to the U.S.? Contrary to what I've read here, it wasn't that difficult to wire money here for the purchase, I used HSBC to wire the money for the purchase, however they didn't ask me for anything that was unreasonable. I had to show proof of where the funds were coming from and I supplied Bank Statements for the past 12 months and they were fine with that. Any advice for selling and sending money back to the U.S. would be greatly appreciated.
