Panama City: Investing in a top location on a budget

Panama City is an up-and-coming destination for real estate investors looking for exclusive prime locations at reasonable prices. The modern high-rise city, the charming UNESCO Old Town of Casco Viejo and the Panama Canal area all offer exciting investment opportunities that make it possible to invest in an urban environment with an excellent capital investment. In this article, we will take a closer look at the districts and present the most attractively priced property project in an exclusive location in Panama City. And each of the projects is suitable for applying for a residence permit in Panama.

The modern city with Avenida Balboa as an attractive investment location for your Plan B in Panama:

In the modern high-rise city near Avenida Balboa, you will find impressive skyscrapers and a first-class infrastructure. Tenants appreciate the proximity to the Pacific Ocean, metro stations and workplaces. The modern high-rises offer amenities such as gyms, pools, children’s playgrounds and concierge services. Buying a property in this part of the city promises an urban lifestyle, high-quality building amenities and ongoing rental income in US dollars.

We recommend the Armonia new-build project as the most attractively priced real estate project in an exclusive location in the modern city. Here you have the opportunity to invest from as little as USD 150,000 in a top location with a renowned developer. Universities, hospitals, subway stations and a new supermarket are in the immediate vicinity. The Armonia project is an excellent capital investment that is interesting for both young investors and experienced real estate buyers. It certainly helps you to implement your Plan B in Panama. I bought an apartment here myself. Click here for more information on the Armonia project.

Casco Viejo, the UNESCO old town, as a historic investment location for a residence permit in Panama

The UNESCO old town of Casco Viejo offers a unique historical ambience with charming streets and restored buildings. Here you will find boutiques, cozy cafés and first-class restaurants. A property in Casco Viejo not only offers a touch of history, but also attractive potential returns when renting or reselling. In addition, the Airbnb rental option offers the opportunity to use the property temporarily yourself. As the supply of properties in Casco Viejo is limited due to its location, future price increases can be expected. Also worth noting are the tax breaks, such as no property tax for 30 years and no tax on rental income for 10 years. Click here for the report on positive development in Casco Viejo.

The Casa Antigua Domingo project offers the best value for money in the UNESCO Old Town for apartments between 300,000 and 500,000 USD. Available apartments directly on Plaza Santa Ana start at just over USD 300,000. These small, split-level apartments with 67 square meters are ideal for Air B’n’B rentals. There are 7 apartments still available as of November 2023. So act now to avoid missing out on this attractive investment opportunity. Click for more information about Casa Antigua.
