Real Estate in Puerto Vallarta, the ultimate souvenir

The ultimate souvenir of a fabulous vacation… Real Estate Text by: Carl Timothy • Photos: Danilo Rottigni from Homes & Living Almost everyone has taken a vacation and wondered what it would be like to live in that exotic place. During one of my many vacations to Puerto Vallarta in the 90s, a friend of mine was driving me to the airport and asked if it would be possible to stop by his marina town-home to check on his boat. Coming from the Los Angeles area I knew that a townhome in the marina with a dock would cost a fortune when I saw how nice his townhome was and how inexpensive they were to purchase, the wheels started to turn. He mentioned that his next-door neighbor was interested in selling and the rest is history. I was a broker in Beverly Hills and was aware that Mexican laws are different than US real estate law. I decided I didn’t want to represent myself in the transaction. Although I had lived in Argentina for a few years and my Spanish was very good, reading through the legal documents was over my language level at the time. To make sure I wasn’t making any mistakes I hired a professional to represent me. In the end, I found the transaction was less complicated than I expected. With the rat race of working in Los Angeles and the temptation of alluring Puerto Vallarta calling, I moved into my marina townhome and started my ...

Buying ejido property in Vallarta should not be cause for alarm

The idea that buying “ejidal” land in Mexico is very complicated is still a persistent myth.Text by: David Guerrero Berger • Photos: Danilo Rottigni from Homes & LivingThe idea that acquiring “ejido” land in Mexico is a very complicated matter is still a persistent myth, and for the most part untrue. Just mentioning the term "ejido" to a prospective buyer usually creates uncertainty due to the idea that there is little legal jurisdiction involved. If we add to this underlying fear the recent news about problems that have surrounded some high-profile ejido property transactions, most notably in the case of the new Pemex refinery or even going back to the Atenco case where the alternate airport was going to be built, the situation could look bleak for some.Nevertheless, the cold reality is that a very large percentage of real estate in Mexico, which maybe be of interest to foreign investors, would fall under the “ejido” or communal property designation. Many are part of important projects which are successful in their own right.What many people may forget is that over half of all existing land in Mexico is ejido property, both along the coastline or in the country`s heartland. As such, this article serves to illustrate the very real possibilities of purchasing ejido lands and informing prospective buyers to help in their decision-making process.Before 1992, investing in ejido property WAS difficult, because agrarian laws prohibited the sale of this communal land and on a whole, any commercial activity was very ...

For example, Cancun has run out of areas for construction of new residential developments and the same thing is happening in the Riviera Maya and Puerto Vallarta, whose growth gave birth to the Riviera Nayarit. This phenomenon, which follows the behavior of supply and demand, has allowed these assets to gain value rapidly, because the lower the supply, the higher the price.Even in these times, prices for Mexican properties at or close to the beach are extremely affordable compared to places like Florida (Miami) or California, but it is possible that in some years they will catch up. Strategic location. Mexico has a privileged geographical location. Practically all the beach destinations have 12 months of good weather each year. In addition, Mexico is between 2 and 5 hours ...

Puerto Vallarta’s Perfect Buyer’s Market

Data derived from market activity in the first half of the year 2009 Text by: Carl Timothy • Photos: Danilo Rottigni from Homes & Living Even though this article is from 2012, considering we have the opportunity to look back in time, it's quite useful for decisions and ideas for the real estate market in Puerto Vallarta Year 2012. Puerto Vallarta's buyer's market Everyone wants to purchase their new property at the very bottom of a real estate market. Most of us believe a perfect buyer’s market to be when the market hits rock bottom. This theory has three problems: Number one, once people believe the bottom of the market has been reached seller usually starts to lose their flexibility and start raising prices attempting to recuperate their lost equity. Number two, more buyers start bidding, which can lead to multiple offers. Number three, by the time you think the bottom of the market has been hit it is usually six months too late and market values have started to increase. Believe it or not, this is really what defines a “Perfect Buyer’s Market”. When the market is a buyer’s market demand is low for the available inventory. Translated this means that there is a wonderful array of inventory to choose from.
