New Law for Real Estate Agents in Quintana Roo

A new law will be introduced in the State of Quintana Roo, in order to regulate the activities of Real Estate providers. The state congress is working on a new law that is destined to protect customers and the interests of Real Estate service providers that work lawfully in the area.

This law is a big step for all professionals who work in the state, because although there are many professional agents; there are many others who have neither the experience nor the qualifications to serve as a Real Estate Agent in the State of Quintana Roo.

New Law for Real Estate Agents in Quintana Roo

Some of the changes Real Estate agents will experience is that they have to register with the State’s Secretary of Urban Development. Individual agents, companies and associations will have to present the documentation required by the state, and pass a background check to make sure there hasn’t been any involvement with criminal activities.

In the case of foreign agents, they must include in their application and documentation certifying them as legal residents in Mexico. The Registration process will take up to 5 days and must be renewed every year.

New Law for Real Estate Agents in Quintana Roo: Protecting the clients

The required certification will make it easier to ensure you are working with a professional, as they will have to present their current registration as a real estate provider.

Some of the articles in the law are aimed to protect the clients’ interests, as they state that the Real Estate agent MUST:

  1. Identify and report any defect or condition present in the property.
  2. Be impartial when negotiating offers and counteroffers between the seller and the buyer, the sales agent will not be allowed to discuss another bids for the property with the buyers.
  3. Respect the conditions contracted with the user.
  4. Advise, guide and explain to the owners and buyers matters regarding the value of the property and the consequences of actions undertaken.
  5. Inform the client with absolute truth about: qualities and defects of the property, potential difficulties in the selling/buying process, operations related to the real estate service that has been entrusted.
  6. The Real Estate Advisor is also prohibited to prevent or oppose any means that any interested party to the transaction, consult with an attorney, architect, engineer, lawyer or other advisors on:
  7. Any problems concerning the property.
  8. Restrictions or limitations that may affect the transaction or the property.

Dreaming About A Warmer Season: Hacienda del Rio

The frigid winter weather comes soon, with its miserable freezing cold temperatures. All you can think about is last year’s winter, when you had to shovel two feet of snow just to run to the store. Having to run out in the cold to warm up the car or the day you had to dump a cup of water on the frozen door just to get it open.

 photo ManShovelingSnow_zps08e9d3ae.jpg

You start to think is it all worth it?

This used to be fun… well not so much anymore… now that you have to risk frostbite just to get a quart of milk at the local 7-11. Bothersome… that’s the word I would use. The beauty of a light snowfall isn’t cute anymore.

Am I getting to old for this?

No… I’m just sick of it!

Let’s not even get started on the yearly winter flu!

The Johnsons next door left yesterday and the Smiths down the road left last week for warmer weather… lucky “snowbirds”.

Wait a minute, lucky them… why not lucky me!

Don’t I deserve a tropical snowbird paradise of my very own?

Well like many snowbirds before me (and many to follow), finding the perfect blend of Mexican Caribbean charm with modern North American flare is the dream for any seasoned and mature real estate investor in Mexico!

Well dream no more!

Hacienda del Rio is a beautiful new retirement community offering everything a mature real estate investor would ever want. Hacienda del Rio is located in the exclusive gated community of El Cielo in Playa del Carmen. Hacienda del Rio is close to the beach, with biking paths and features round the clock security. Custom style homes with a Mexican charm, an active and comfortable clubhouse and uniquely designed lazy river style pool. All designed with the mature and savvy retiree as its guide. At prices starting at the mid $100,000 USD, Hacienda del Rio is just the “dream” you’ve been looking for to spend your golden (and best) years!

Condo-hotel 101: Comparing your Condo-hotel with a Timeshare

Condo-hotels are an exciting option for individuals who would like to own a condo in a luxury hotel and have access to all of the luxury amenities at that hotel. When not using their condo unit, owners have the option of placing it in the hotel’s rental program and receiving a percentage of the revenue it generates.

Please, do not get confused with timeshares; condo-hotels have many qualities that set them apart from timeshares and make them appealing to anyone in the market for a second home. Here’s a comparison between a timeshare and a condo-hotel real estate investment.

Characteristics Timeshare Condo-hotel

Characteristics Timeshare Condo-hotel
Flexibility Specific week of the year, it is not flexible. Flexibility to use your unit whenever you want.*
Amenities The norm is a community pool and some common areas. Amenities you would find at luxury hotels: several pools, restaurants, lounge, bars, spa and gym.
Furnishings Timeshares are sold fully furnished. The quality of furnishings depends on the individual development. Condo-hotel units are sold fully furnished. The cost for furnishings is included in the price of the condo-hotel unit.
Services In a timeshare, you are responsible for your own housekeeping and unit upkeep during your stay. You get daily housekeeping as you would in a luxury hotel. And you have access to room service, concierge services, maintenance services and check-in services.
Location Located in highly-desirable resort areas. Located in highly-desirable resort areas.
Price Timeshares are typically cheaper than condo-hotels, because you are only purchasing one or two weeks of usage. You receive deeded ownership to the property. In addition, when not using your condo-hotel unit, you can get revenue, helping to offset your maintenance costs.
Income Potential You profit form the week or two weeks that you own. It generates revenue any time that you are not occupying your unit, whether it is for one night or 365 days a year.
Appreciation Timeshares depreciate in value. Reselling timeshares has never taken off, most people who buy a timeshare will have it for life, whether they want to or not. You are the deeded owner of the unit, also the luxury lifestyle that comes with an amenity-filled, high-service property.

*Note: Some condo-hotels do have living restrictions that prevent you from making your condo a permanent residence. Read your contract.

So if you like luxury resort style living and all the amenities that go along with a luxury resort, then a condo-hotel might be for you.
