It all starts with the budget. With this parameter, the real estate agent will be able to get the best real estate option within the investor’s possibilities. Additionally, it is advisable to request a comparative analysis of the market in order to understand the respective prices by area and thus determine if an investment is fair and or if it is above the market price.


Location, location, location! Key element in real estate. The location can be decisive, both to guarantee the quality of tenants if it is an investment property, and also to know the capital gain that can be generated over time. A good real estate agent will be able to provide insights into areas that are growing, and which are stagnant for reasons that foreigners could not identify with the naked eye.

Objective of the Investment

It is important to determine the purpose for which the investment is made: it can be as an investment, in order to obtain residence or, to live in the property.

Invest in Panama: it is very important to seek advice from a real estate agent to understand which are the areas that generate the most returns and profitability. In Panama, the short-term rental model, for example the one carried out on platforms such as AirBnB, VRBO or Booking.com, has shown to generate excellent returns, as long as it is well managed and well located.

Residence: it is possible to obtain Panamanian residence depending on the nationality with which you are applying. For example, if your nationality is on the “Friendly Countries” list, a minimum investment of $200,000 in real estate is required. In other scenarios, it requires an investment of $300,000, depending on nationality. For more information on this topic, visit our blog.

Lifestyle: it is important to focus on the lifestyle of the investor and his dependents. A real estate advisor can guide you in the various ecosystems that exist in different areas to ensure the best option.
