Property Developer & Builder Research

You’ve found the perfect country and the perfect location; now it’s time to take it to the next level.

For many people this can be a very exciting element of purchasing International real estate, but it can also be very daunting. Where International encourages the excitement, and diminishes the intimidation by providing information and check lists so that you are equipped with the expertise to make the entire building process stress-free.

Ensuring that you have a quality builder is vital, regardless of what country you’re in, but it’s a different world in Latin America and you need to make certain your builder is following the proper rules.

All of the developers and builders that work with Where International have been put under the microscope and scrutinized to guarantee that they complete their due diligence. In fact, our rating system is based solely on how they’ve completed our Developer Checklist, which is in place to protect you and your investment.

If you’re interested in seeing how our developer and builder partners came to their current rating, please provide your information HERE and we’d be pleased to send you their checklist.

Note: If a developer tells you that they work with us, but you do not see them on our list, please contact us at

Where International exists to recommend a variety of International real estate options. Where International requires developers to meet stringent criteria before offering them to you. Conversely, any inspections we conduct on projects or individuals should not be misinterpreted as a guarantee by Where International. International real estate is not immune to the ups and downs that occur in North American real estate; property values are never guaranteed to increase.

Where International is not accountable for the orchestration or deliverance of Discovery Weekends. We provide them to you on behalf of our developer partners. We recommend that you purchase travel insurance, as you would with any trip out of your home country. In addition, we advise you complete your own due diligence, purchase title insurance and always use a local attorney to assist with all transactions. In the event that a reader purchases a property from a recommended developer, Where International receives a sum from the developer.
