Real Estate Basics in Mexico

Enjoying a Mexican Pacific beachfront or colonial hillside, you’ve decided to put down roots in Mexico and “save money” by buying.

Invest a significant amount of time before investing in Mexican real estate. Get to know the terrain, its problems and advantages. Work hard to understand the area, the people and the real estate values.

Get the assistance of someone who is familiar with the rules so that you don’t miss nuances. Even though you may have bought and sold real estate in the United States or Canada, the Mexican experience is a totally new.

50,000 Americans and Canadians Live in Puerto VallartaView overlooking Banderas Bay and Puerto Vallarta

You hear the story again and again in Mexico: We went for a visit and ended up buying. There are 500,000 Americans and Canadians who have been lured by the beauty, the serenity and, not least, the prices, to become homeowners in Mexico. One tenth of the Americans and Canadians live in the Puerto Vallarta area.

Most of the time there are no problems. But occasionally press accounts raise questions about just how safe it was to buy land in Mexico. Buyers simply need to apply the same due diligence they would anywhere else. Continue reading “Real Estate Basics in Mexico”

Financial Planning for PV Real Estate

“Real estate gives me the ability to use my financial planning skills when I help someone buy, sell, or rent a home,” explains Puerto Vallarta-based real estate agent Rick Slatton.

Gringo GulchThat approach gives Slatton an advantage over more traditionally-focused agents. “I think there are agents who sell,” he explains. “I don’t sell. For me, it is my job to sort out what my clients really want and afford, and to help them find it. With buyers, that means making sure they find a house they’ll enjoy, rather than just trying to make a sale.”

For Slatton, that means listening to what clients tell him, and, based on that, offering options they may not have considered. “I had a client who said Continue reading “Financial Planning for PV Real Estate”

How Is a Condo Best for Your Trip?

I like to visit Puerto Vallarta in the off-season because there are lots of gorgeous and cheap accommodations available and there are no crowds. Locals are less stressed and deals abound everywhere I turn.

But how does one find these accommodation deals in Puerto Vallarta or anywhere else?

Sure, hotels offer convenient access to more services. For short stays, hotels are ideal. Everything is easy, but if staying long, hotels cost a lot and don’t feel homey.

Condos offer my regular living style. With a stocked kitchen and linens, I can settle in to enjoy a place for weeks or months at a time. It becomes a second home.Painting of Puerto Vallarta

Most important to me, condos cost a lot less than hotels. An off-season rental can be dirt cheap.

I like to live pretty well. Currently, my rental is a gorgeous two-bedroom condo two blocks from the best beach in the area for 7000 pesos (about $550) a month including utilities, cable tv, and high-speed internet. Next month, my partner is returning to the U.S. so I’ll rent a one-bedroom for 3500 pesos (about $275).

Even lower rental prices are available. I just happen to like this particular condo.

You can find these types of deals in the Vallarta area with just a little help. Contact me at Dora@OldVallarta.com and I’ll share how.
