Buying a shared piece of land outside of Lima

Postby windsportinperu » Fri Mar 09, 2012 2:59 pm

Have anyone thought about buying a piece of rural land outside of Lima ?

The small plots of about 500 to 1000 m2 cost more, but could share our dreams together and buying a shared big plot of 1 or more hectares near Lima.

The bigger the land is, the lower the price is ..

Any thoughts..

We bought some land near the beach @ Playa Leon Dormido. It was fairly inexpensive and we got 1200 m2. The less developed the area, the cheaper it's going to be. I would have liked more but it's a private association.

Don't buy land. Invade land.

That only prove that you are not honest and don't have any respect for the law and regulations.

I didn´t invade land myself. But I understand that poor people do it. Most of Lima started of as an invasion. For example, Villa El Salvador is the biggest district of Lima and started of as an invasion.

Rich people buy large plots of land and hike up the prices so that poor locals are priced out. They no longer can afford a plot of land to build a home and grow their fruit and vegetables. So, they must invade land if they want to live in the area they grew up in and where their family lives.

Same problem in Europe. Rich people buy up land and people can no longer live in the city or village where there parents live and have to move further away with all inconveniences involved.

This makes no sense and is off topic. This thread wasn't started to discuss land grabs and gentrification, it's about whether anyone is interested in combining forces to buy land. Please stay on topic.

It's sounds like it's better that you buy a big plot and then sell parts of it to other people. Probably, you can recuperate the cost of your own part.

Could anyone tell me how much land costs in Villa el Salvador? Is 9000 dollars for 84 meters square a reasonable price? That seems kind of expensive, but I really don't know how to gauge it. Thanks for any help.

I asked my gf and she said that's a very reasonable price because land in Villa El Salvador is expensive. Villa El Salvador is a very commercial district and popular area to live. It has good public transport and served by the Metro (electric train) and Metropolitana.
Many business people that have businesses in furniture manufacture, engineering and construction live in the area.
