Do you want something in a gated, private community? Maybe a house by a golf course or maybe just a little place in a quiet, small, out of the way village?
Like many, you may have heard that it is difficult to purchase property in Mexico or that foreigners "are not allowed to own Mexican real estate." While there are a few obstacles that foreigners may face in buying a home, it is indeed possible!
This extra effort just makes owning your dream home in paradise just that much more special!
Top Tip : It will be helpful to work with a good real estate agent or broker to guide you through the process. They are familiar with the legal issues and what to look out for so be sure to have one by your side.
As far as the rules go, the Mexican constitution states that "foreigners cannot own property within 100 kilometers of the border and 50 kilometers within the coastline." These areas are appropriately called the "restricted zone."
But don't worry, Guadalajara homes are not in the restricted zone.
However, even if you want to purchase a weekend Puerto Vallarta villa, then there is still a way to buy property. Real estate in the restricted zone can be purchased using either a Mexican corporation or a Bank Trust.
So don't worry.. you can do this and soon enough you'll find that perfect, diamond in the rough, the Guadalajara real estate that's just right for you.
Take your time to search for your dream property and be prepared.
More to come .. such as "Finding a Mexico home loan.. or financing for your property." Stay tuned!
