For most Americans and Canadians, about the only better than owning Mexico real estate for a new lifestyle in Paradise is finding that same property at an excellent price. The following are resources which buyers can use to help them discover the best real estate deal available.
Regular Online Listings
A good place to start is online listings. It’s worth taking a bit of time and finding listings which include the top areas around the country, a good selection of properties from each, a variety of property types which reflect the real variety to be found in each location, good organization and search and sort tools. Each property listing should have a variety of pictures giving a good idea of what the property is like and probably a map for the sake of location comparison (on the local level!) Good listings are a great place to start since they allow a buyer to get a feel for what’s out there and for the usual “asking prices.”
Listings for Price Reductions
After getting a feel for things, the next step to take is to go directly for the deals; more importantly, buyers should let experienced professionals “do their work for them.” There are brokers and agents who put a good deal of attention on finding the best price-reductions out there and making them available on one convenient page. These professionals work directly in the market every day, and know a good property and a good deal when they see one. These specific listings are an excellent resource.
E-Mail Notifications & Newsletters
A good tool to combine with both of the above is e-mail notifications. Some real estate groups have options to sign up for an e-mail notification every time a new property within a buyer’s price range is posted. This saves time (from browsing through listings already seen) and puts the buyer at the advantage of being the first to know.
The Right Agent
The most important resource is the right agent. The right agent will be qualified with certificates and training, and will be a member of AMPI (Mexico’s only professional association for realtors.) He or she will know the market well and will be able to identify good deals that best suit the needs of each individual buyer. He will also easily be able to comment on any deals that a buyer finds on line and evaluate how much appeal they may have for the buyer in question, since they will know the property in person.
Using these resources, buyers can make that important step and not only find a good property in Mexico, but also find a great deal above and beyond the country’s normally low prices.
