While buying real estate in Mexico can be one of the most important decisions for retirees, vacationers and investors, it is also a process that requires due care, since it is a different country, with a different culture and different laws.
Two steps buyers can take to ensure that they make the most this exciting experience are finding an informative Mexico agent.
While several guides to buying safely are available in written format, it may be difficult to find these, and, on the other hand, some of the most up to date information can be found from reliable sources on-line. One example is the Top Mexico Real Estate Guide: Buying Safely e-book. This guide was compiled from the advice, comments and observations of highly experienced and qualified brokers and other related professionals working directly in the Mexico real estate market. The guide covers key topics such as:
The steps in the purchasing process.
Various contracts you may use in the process.
Owning as a foreigner, and when you need to use a bank trust.
Professionals you will need to work with.
Finding the right agent.
Estimating closing costs.
This particular guide was designed for buyers relatively new to real estate in Mexico, and presents accurate information in straight-forward, everyday language, putting the basics within reach of its English-speaking readers.
The format is a question-answer, with two easy-to-use navigation bars, to choose information by chapter or by contributor. The e-book comes in PDF format and can be downloaded in about 2 minutes.
One point which the book stresses over and over again is the importance of finding and working with a qualified and reliable agent. An agent should have:
a) thorough knowledge of the industry, processes and market
b) experience putting this knowledge into practice, and continuous updating on new information
c) dedication focused on clients’ needs, with a strong community reputation to indicate this
While familiarity with the processes and steps is necessary so buyers aren’t “lost in the woods,” in the end the right agent will be the one to guide the process and apply their knowledge and experience to the needs of the client.
Buyers considering Mexico for the first time will find the process satisfying and rewarding if they follow these two basic and import first steps.
