Advice for Buying Property in Mexico

posted in: Real Estate, Tips | 0

Mexico is a wonderful place to live, and a very good place to invest in property for vacation rentals, but it can be hard to know how to make sure you’re getting the best property for your needs. We have some advice that could help you to do just that;

  1. Neighborhood:
  2. Choosing the right neighborhood is key if you want to make decent returns on a vacation let in Mexico. It can affect what kind of clients you attract, or if you attract any at all! For example, if you buy a property within walking distance of nightclubs and bars then you’re going to attract young vacationers who’re looking for a party. And if you buy a property in a quieter area with less bars and more day activities then you’ll likely attract young families and older couples.

  3. Amenities:
  4. When you’re buying with the intention of renting your property when you are not using it, then you’re going to want to make sure that your apartment is within easy reach of all the amenities that vacationers are going to want. So this means you should be looking out for apartments near shopping malls, lifeguard attended beaches, golf courses, spa and beachfront bars.

    If you want to be smart you can check to see what neighborhoods are due for development and revitalisation. If they’re close to the centre of town, or other popular tourist spots, you can buy before prices rise and make a nice profit when you let or sell.

  5. Future Development:
  6. Don’t pay a premium for factors that may change when further development starts. For example, when you buy a beachfront condo be sure to check that it’s right on the beach, or that there’s not enough space for a few more houses in front of you. In truth there’s a chance than someone will buy that empty space and make themselves a beachfront home at your expense, leaving your view compromised.

  7. Real Estate & Professional Administration Services:
  8. Finding the right real estate agent to help could be the best thing you ever do; realestate agents know more about Mexican property laws and the real estate market than you do and they can help you to get the best for your money. Once you’ve got the property you wanted you should look into Professional Admin Services; they can help you with the day to day running of your property and make the reality of renting out a property in a foreign country a little less stressful.
