I’m sure you have heard stories of folks who come down on vacation and return having purchased real estate. And then there are folks who sign a long-term lease and move a container full of furniture. But maybe for you, the idea of living in Mexico is elusive. You wish moving down here but cannot pinpoint the best place for you.
The good news is that there’s an easy way to explore your options about moving to Mexico, and it happens to be free. It’s called house sitting and it’s a very good way to explore your options for a move to Mexico. Instead of a hotel, house sitting allows you to stay in a “real” home, similar to what you might consider for yourself when you move. You can stay there long enough to see what it’s like to live there, while you are informing yourself, meeting people, exploring various neighborhoods and forming your own opinions about the town.
House sitting is typically a no-cash exchanged relationship in which a sitter receives a place to stay in exchange for keeping the home occupied while the owner is away, plus other responsibilities as required. In this “win-win” relationship, house sitters have an opportunity to see what daily life is like. Typically the homeowner introduces their house sitter to neighbors and friends, so there are people to get to know, and opportunities to benefit from their experience, plus enjoying the lower cost of living of their new host country.
If you want to know more, there is a website that brings homeowners in Mexico together with people like you who might want to house sit for them. It’s www.HouseSitMexico.com and easy to use, highly functional website that offers two types of interactive maps of Mexico (helpful as you get to know the country), sophisticated search capabilities, private messaging and email updates of new house sitting opportunities.
