House Hunting in Uruguay
Team Haverkate was mentioned in the latest New York Times article “House Hunting in Uruguay.”
Next to the famous “Guru Guay” Karen Higgs, who by the way lists us on her website as one of her “Top Picks” and Olenka Bethe of Urban Heritage, a firm who specializes on historic properties in Montevideo, we the TEAM Haverkate got mentioned in the New York Times article “House Hunting in Uruguay” regarding Real Estate trends in the Jose Ignacio Area.
José Ignacio, a fishing village 20 miles north, is also popular with foreign buyers. Ralph Haverkate, an agent with the Haverkate Team affiliated with Engel & Völkers, said the laid-back area — which is often compared to Tulum, Mexico, before it became a trendy destination — attracts Americans and “feels like the Hamptons or California 30 years ago.”
There are also some interesting links in the article of the author “Lana Bortolot” to the latest quality of living survey from the Mercer website, where Montevideo ranks as the best city in South America.
