Real estate / Property
Was in Mar del Plata in September 07 to purchase an apartment. I like MDP more than BA as its more relaxed and anyway I am more of a beach person. I think the place is going to grow in terms of foreign tourists and the property market is very cheap by comparison. Anyway I am sold on Argentina and I love my mate and tango so I guess I am half way there. Used a company called mardelproperty to find my apartment for me. The multiple listing service is not used in Argentina so unless you speak spanish and have the time to visit the hundreds of local agents trying to sell their handful of properties, the way to go is ask these guys to find something before you come down. I recommend you visit the place first to see if you want to buy here. Preferably in Summer and winter as they are very different. Prices are so cheap you can leave your apartment empty and use it when you want to come down or you can rent to students in the winter and tourists in the summer. I prefer to keep mine free and use it when I need my next tango or mate fix! Good luck.
