Once you’ve identified the regions that you like these, it’s time to start searching for properties. You’ll find at the bottom of each region or sub-region page, properties that are currently for sale in that region. Or, you can utilize these two search engines:
- 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. Check out the agent descriptions in Professionals, where many have their resumes along with satisfied customer testimonials. Also, visit the Vallarta Real Estate Agents Directory.
And lastly, ask people who have already purchased what their opinions are; they’ve already been through the process.
