Panama Relocation Tours does NOT sell real estate. We encourage you to wait at least a year before buying real estate in Panama — or many don’t buy real estate at all while living in Panama. A year gives you time to do five things:

1. Get your permanent visa ( makes sure you can live in Panama)

2. Determine if you love living in Panama

3. Determine if the area you have selected is right for you

4. Learn market prices so you don’t pay too much

5. Learn which real estate agents you can trust

The Online Complete Panama Relocation Guide has information about different areas in Panama, how to get a visa, recommended real estate agents and immigration lawyers, and much more information you will need to know to have a smooth move to Panama. Only $595. You also get access to our private forum where we offer ongoing support before, during, and after your move to Panama.

    Hello Jackie. In one of your future videos or blogs, if you havent already, can you discuss finding a home inspector to look over a house before purchasing it like we do in the U.S? I went house hunting a few weeks ago and couldnt find anything without significant issues. I went to an expensive new build area where the houses hadn’t been skinned yet and was shocked at how bad the the block work was.
