One of the most popular locations for Mexico beachfront for sale is Cabo real estate. Because of close access to the U.S., warm, sunny weather, nice properties and low prices (for real estate and living expenses) it’s easy to see why people make this choice.  However, when you decide to make this paradise your new home, there are resources you can (and should) use to ensure that the search and buying process is safe.  The following are some of the most important of these resources.

 

Mexico Real Estate Blog

A good place to start is a good blog about Mexico real estate, kept up to date daily, written by experienced professionals working directly in the market. Such a blog can not only offer good reports on “spotlight” listings from Cabo, but also information on life there, new services, restaurants, activities, economy, tourism and other important items.

 

Magazines, Travel Sites, etc.

There are many online resources that will offer pictures, stories and tips on things to see and do in Cabo, whether it’s one of the 15 excellent golf courses, or if it’s a tour of old Spanish Missions.  While you probably already know Cabo from vacations, resources like these can help you get to know the area better and look forward to many of the exciting activities you will enjoy as a part of day to day life.

 

Online MLS Listings

Not all online listings do the market in Cabo justice, which offers many homes, condos and lots, on the beachfront, next to golf courses, and in many other good locations.  It’s important to look for a thorough listing service that offers many pictures for each listing, map location, etc.

 

E-Books

A Mexico real estate guide written by experienced professionals will give all the basics you need to know about buying and owning real estate in Cabo, covering topics such as ownership through bank trusts, the contracts involved in the offer and closing processes and the professionals you will need to work with.

 

An Experienced Agent

One of the most important steps you will take in your Cabo real estate purchase will be selecting your agent.  In Mexico, there are no restrictions on who can offer service as a real estate agent, meaning it’s your job to make sure your agent is professional, experienced and qualified.  Such an agent will be invaluable in helping find the right property and guiding you through the closing process.

 

Following these steps, you can feel assured that in buying your property in Cabo you will be starting off your life in paradise well!
