Five big companies profiting from the real estate boom in Argentina

Real estate companies are investing heavily in Argentina. According to Buenos Aires Habitat, “The Argentine real estate market is stable, due to the lack of mortgages and loans granted to buyers. This ensures that no real estate bubbles are allowed to inflate and that prices will remain the same in the future. In the long term, real estate investments will always resist economic crises. Despite the ups and downs of the Argentine economy, real estate prices have continued to rise. Moreover, according to Gaucho Group Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: VINO), “Construction costs, currently in pesos, are around $70 per square foot. It is therefore inexpensive to build. Plus, with cheaper labor, it’s time to build now. Other companies benefiting from the story include IRSA Inversiones et Representaciones Sociedad Anónima (NYSE: IRS), Cresud (NASDAQ: CRESY), Airbnb inc. (NASDAQ: ABNB), and Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. (NYSE:JLL).

“It has been said that by 2027, Argentina will receive an average of 12.5 million visitors as tourists per year, expanding the market for vacation rental properties and perhaps providing additional incentive to integrate the Argentine real estate in your investment portfolio,” added CreimermanLaw. .com.

Look at Gaucho Group Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: VINO), for example

Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: WINE), a company that includes a growing collection of e-commerce platforms with a focus on fine wines, luxury real estate, and leather goods and accessories announced the formation of Gaucho Development SRL, a planned Argentine holding company to develop the land recently acquired by the company holdings in the commercial and business districts of San Rafael, Mendoza and Córdoba. The Company estimates potential rental income at over US$260,000 per year once development is complete.

As previously announced, last year the company purchased land in Argentina in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $2.4 million. One of the plots is located in the region of San Rafael, Mendoza in Argentina, and the other is located in the second largest city in the country, Córdoba, the estimated fair market value of the combined properties totaling approximately 2.4 million dollars. Both properties are also located on main thoroughfares, with heavy pedestrian and road traffic, and both with ample parking, a feature considered a rare advantage in Argentinian cities.

Scott Mathis, CEO and President of Gaucho Holdings, said, “We have already secured our first tenant (a well-known multi-unit company that has demonstrated a long history of operating in Argentina) with a ten-year lease at our San Rafael location.As part of the same property which is yet to be developed, there is an adjacent area on which we intend to build a two-storey business center and commercial market containing six units on the ground floor. ground floor and two units on the top floor.Similarly, in our Córdoba property, we intend to develop a two-story business center and market place containing four units on the ground floor and five units on the top floor.As both of these locations offer ample guest parking, usually a rare feature in Argentinian cities, we believe we can put a premium on the asking rental prices. take into account an estimated annual increase in inflation, the year-over-year figures can be considerably higher. We believe real estate valuations have been temporarily lowered due to the COVID crisis, which could allow for substantial appreciation in coming years.

“Argentina’s difficult economic environment certainly has its drawbacks, but it can also offer extraordinary opportunities. It may be useful for us to build in Argentine pesos, at the equivalent of $70 per square foot, which includes labor compensation in devalued pesos, and then benefit more from this scenario by leasing these properties in U.S. dollars. Our goal and model is to try to “produce in pesos, then sell in USD” as much as possible. We believe we can duplicate this same model in the largest cities in Argentina, such as Córdoba as well as Buenos Aires, for which we have already targeted several prime locations. Perhaps one of our greatest strengths ultimately is having the ability to capitalize on opportunities like this because of our local on-the-ground experience. Over the next 36 months, our goal is to invest 30 million USD in this same scenario. We are excited about the long-term opportunities this model can provide. »

Algodon COO Sergio Manzur Odstrcil commented; “Due to current USD to Peso conversion rates and its effect on labor and certain material costs, we are seeing historical lows in construction costs, at values ​​that we have not not seen for 30 years, so it’s time to build. We estimate that it can cost around $650 per square meter ($60 per square foot) to build these commercial business centers which, when combined, total approximately 2,150 m² (23,142 square feet). We believe that with the potential rental income, we could recoup our building costs in just a few years.
