So financially speaking about the high millions of dollars:
A bank loan is difficult for something new.
But there is one more obstacle:
I read a case of a hotel in Uruguay. A US person owned it. The purchase was about a half a millon
US dollar, and the person payed it. A few years later he wanted to expand and needed about
40K USD loan. His put in would have been 40K USD also.
He could not obtain a loan in Uruguay because he could not find a bank with that much investment.
Simply there is just no money.
I am from a country where there is just simply no money. I understand both worlds: US and not US.
Some people come from a point of view . that it is OK to dream whatever, because in the US
there is just so much money. It is true: there is lots of money in the USA.
There might be a cultural difference between different points of views here, about financial terms.
Not to mention the climate difference. In cold climate survival depends on a house and shelter and
heating. In warm climate: whatever. There is a cultural difference of thinking about investment and
and two more cents
