Any plans to invest in a property in Mexico? Here are some tips for Buying Property in Mexico:

If you are a prudent investor, you will recognize that diversification is key. Therefore, rather than putting all your cash in US lands, it might be an excellent plan to attempt investing in a property in Mexico. Why Mexico? Well, except for the reality that market circumstances in Mexico are completely diverse from that of the United States, the closeness of Mexico to the United States makes confirming on a property simpler. The exchange rate has been favorable for investment for a number of years with the US Dollar cashing in at around 20 pesos. Moreover, there are over one million US inhabitants who live in Mexico permanently.

Property professionals trust that the Mexico property market will keep on rising, while more baby boomers continue to retreat to tropical sanctuaries. And, as remote workers become more and more flexible and less and less anchored to cities, the search for a warm climate with low population density is on.

Hi Brent and Erin,

I am Scott from Ontario, Canada. I am enjoying reading the information you provide, thank you. More and more I am reading up on travelling to Mexico and Puerto Vallarta keeps looking like my best bet. Of course, I will visit for a few weeks to make sure that PV feels right and, if so, I am interested in purchasing a property to use and possibly rent out when I’m away. Your website is extremely helpful.
