An Agent or Developer

Once you have identified the neighborhoods you like best and saved some to your Favorites, it is time to then select a real estate agent to assist you. Because...

  • Buying real estate in Mexico is different than in Canada and the U.S. - the laws are different
  • To be legal the transaction has to be in Spanish
  • Most sellers prefer to work through an intermediary

You could just contact the listing agent for each property that you’ve saved in your Favorites, but you might want to do a little homework in this area as well, as working with a good agent is an important and integral part of the buying process. They not only will provide you access to the properties you’d like to view, but they can also inform you further about the buying process, and most importantly, they will be negotiating on your behalf.

So choose someone you are comfortable with. Look through the Agent Directories. Check out some of the agent descriptions in Marketplace, where many have their resumes along with satisfied customer testimonials. Vallarta Real Estate Agents Directory

And lastly, ask people who have already purchased what their opinions are; they’ve already been through the process.
