jcmicro,
You did fine don't worry about it! $2000 for 206 meters brand new on the Malecon(nicely furnished) is a good price. I have one that I rent out ST for $4500.00 a month and it is rented 80% of the time. Five years ago when I was first renting anything nice was $1100-$1300. So be happy!

Re: Thank you :)

Thanks for the help everyone!!! Some people have told me that my idea is crazy, but they were people who don't really know anything about peru, so I knew that I needed a little feedback from someone who knew what they were talking about since, let's face it, I don't really know that much about Peru...

One thing I have been hearing is that it's better to rent to foreiners because it takes forver to try and evict a Peruvian. Can someone elabor...

Thank you Ladies & Gentleman! Actually I have been a member here since '03, have not posted in years as I forgot my log on information and "Got Lost in Lima" .

Looking at the rental prices of the appartments in Lima they are between 20% and 30% higher than I was paying 12 months ago!!! Is this right? Thats an incredible increase in the middle of a credit crises in a country where a majority of the population could be fairly described as "poor". ...

I have to agree with Parmentier, By any standard Lima is still one of the cheapest world capitols around. I was recently forced out of retirement by a group of Arab investors to start a R.E. Development Company. With all of the Embassies, Foreign companies expanding, Banks tripping over themselves t...
