The decision of buying in Buenos AiresâŠ
Surely we will agree that the most important moment and, at the same time the most anguish for all the challenge that this decision involve, is the positive decision of buying a property. First at all, because you will decide to invest the product of years of work and savings and second because you are miles of kilometers away.
The first question to make yourself is :Â¿FOR WHAT DO YOU WANT TO INVEST? If you only want to buy a property as an investment, the price will be the changeable to pay more attention. If you are looking for a housing, the central theme is the number of rooms, characteristic impossible to disregard and of course the zone.
Either it would be for housing or for investment, take your time for walking around, even though you wonât be able to known every details of the neighborhood but at least, It would let you know if the place has any potential or if you like it.
The search is exhausting but it is the most amusing part of the process. AND THEN?
The first step that we recommend is trying to get the CDI, which is the password that will let you buy (like a foreigner) any kind of property with a register in Buenos Aires city. After having the property, although it will be for temporary rent (a hotelâs room is useless because it is considered like a place for a short stay), it is ne need to arrange in the police station of the neighborhood a certificate of residence that costs $10 approximately (ten Argentinean pesos).
With that paper you need to go to the rightful AFIP, fill up a form and, at that moment, you will have the CDI number. It is very simple, and if you do not have it you will complicate and cancel any process of buying a property.
Â¿WHAT IS A BOOK OF A PROPERTY? It is a written formal process when you have the intention of buying a property. It is taken AD REFERENDUM, it depends on the approval of the owner. If the owner do not accept that, he will give you back the money. Otherwise, the process of buying the property must be continued.
The amount fluctuate among U$A500 and U$A 1000, and it must be reinforced if you decide to make a direct deeds or it is the previous step before signing the ticket for a buysell for the 30% the value of the property.
It is very important to remember that only in case it is a brand new house, THE BUYER DECIDE THE NOTARY THAT WILL BE IN CHARGE OF THE PROCESS.
Finally arrange the shipment of the money to Buenos Aires. For this we recommend only to use the official bank, because using other options it will cause more problems in the future, mainly legal problems with taxes linked with money laundering, linked with the international context.
