Panama Investment Opportunities



Panama Investment Opportunities
Introduction Clients of​ our law firm frequently ask us what are the good opportunities for investment in​ Panama. This web page is​ probably a​ long time coming and here it​ is. Investments are rated by the number of​ stars *****, five is​ the best and one is​ the worst.
Real Estate Flipping * This is​ buying a​ not yet completed condo or​ townhouse and selling it​ before it​ is​ completed. This gives you a​ gain well you hope anyway and the ROI return on investment is​ great since you only put up to​ 30% down. Many people we know are trying to​ sell their flip positions without success. Several large prominent real estate projects have failed to​ move forward to​ completion thus the speculators just tied up their capital for no gain and wasted their time and money. The clichés concerning panama real estate flipping would be as​ follows if​ it​ was that good everyone would be doing it​ and if​ it​ is​ too good to​ be true it​ probably isn?t true.
Construction Raw Materials **** Now you are talking about a​ good investment. There is​ still a​ tremendous amount of​ construction taking place in​ Panama and this is​ likely to​ continue for some years to​ come. All real estate construction materials are in​ short supply and prices are high. You can start with cement, go to​ marble, tile, etc and the preceding is​ all true. This is​ how one can make some serious money. Capital is​ required and one would import the raw materials required by the construction industry. We are a​ Panama Law Firm and we can assist clients strictly as​ your legal counsel, who wish to​ engage in​ such a​ business enterprise.
Construction Heavy Equipment **** There is​ a​ shortage of​ all heavy construction equipment used in​ constructing highrise residential buildings. it​ is​ all in​ short supply. You could import new or​ used equipment. You can rent it​ out by the day, week or​ month. You can also contract with developers over longer periods as​ well. The construction of​ the Panama Canal expansion has not even started yet and this should serve to​ increase the shortages.
Dump Trucks ***** There is​ a​ serious shortage here. Some projects are severely backed up since they lack the trucks to​ haul away the dirt from the job site. These can be rented short or​ long term or​ supplied to​ developers on a​ longterm basis. You could supply, drivers, do the maintenance, have replacement trucks etc and make a​ fortune. You need not import new equipment; used equipment in​ serviceable condition would work fine. The developers are more interested in​ quick completion times than they are interested in​ extra truck expense costs.
Cement Mixer Trucks **** Again another shortage, see above.
Expensive Horses *** Panama has lot of​ them, many different breeds and at​ prices much below the North American market prices. This is​ simple for one in​ the business. Better yet set up a​ breeder facility in​ Panama taking advantage of​ low land cost and cheap labor and export the horses to​ the North American market at​ a​ tidy profit.
Customer Service Residential Businesses **** Think of​ something all the foreigners moving into condos in​ Panama will want that is​ not already here and watch your cash register ring. The completed condos are about to​ occupy and more are completing monthly. This is​ an amazing market of​ high disposable income people, mostly without children in​ their home that are over 40. This one requires excellent marketing skills and is​ not for the me too businessperson. if​ you try competing against the locals in​ their business you will probably lose. You need to​ bring something new to​ the table and need to​ make sure it​ is​ not easily copied. Imagine the potential, all you need is​ the product that the people will want that no one else has in​ Panama. of​ course our law firm can provide all the legal assistance you need.
Hard Money Lender*** Want to​ loan money against houses, townhouses and condos this is​ the market. Imagine 30% to​ 40% down 60% to​ 70% LTV, 5 to​ 15 year mortgages at​ 3 points over bank rates which are currently in​ the mid sixes so you would be in​ the 9% + range. Strictly equity loans in​ first position giving you serious protection. Rates are currently not so exciting but servicing costs are low in​ Panama and you would run out of​ money before you ran out of​ mortgages.
Panama Web Hosting **** There is​ a​ serious shortage of​ reliable web hosting companies, no shortage of​ bandwidth. Run in​ your lines to​ a​ secure facility. Have 24hour camera surveillance of​ the site. Use swipe cards for all staff coming and going. Have 24hour serious security. Promote it​ as​ such and you will have no shortage of​ customers.
Restaurants* Forget this they come and go all the time. High failure rate, lots of​ competition.
Hotels *** Shortage of​ real five star hotels. There are no real five stars using North American standards. What they call a​ five star here is​ at​ best a​ four star elsewhere. Good fourstar hotels would also fare quite well since they are in​ short supply as​ well.
Alternative Health Care ***** Big shortage, great demand. Come on down. Look into licensure first since that gets tricky.
Maids ***** Panama currently has a​ serious shortage of​ maids. Think of​ a​ solution to​ this and clean up.
Please feel free to​ contact our law firm for any matter in​ which you require legal representation in​ Panama.
