“We’re seeing strong demand,” shared Ross Bonanno, who is vice president of airports and guest services for the airline. “It’s a popular and very safe resort area. We’ve seen that demand is as … (0 comments)

"A Gold Rush" - Travel & Leisure
 
Despite hyped-headlines and the barrage of “salesy” articles and press releases that are currently flying around the blogosphere, the sleepy town of Tulum on Mexico’s Caribbean coast could make quite a few people very, very rich.
 
Only a few years ago, you could purchase a piece of this sacred strip of Mayan beach and jungle for peanuts (one fifth) compared to what it would cost you now, and this upward spiral is only in its infancy.  Why the stunning growth?  It appears the perfect (real estate) storm has precipitated for this … (2 comments)

investment property: International Monetary Fund Raises Growth Forecast for Mexico - 07/19/10 06:36 AM

The International Monetary Fund (IMF), the powerful organization that oversees the global financial system, significantly raised its economic forecast for Mexico this month and in fact, warned that the economy South of the Border may be in danger of “overheating”.  
 
Latin America’s second largest economy is racing out of the recession at a 4.5% growth rate, faster than the U.S. and a full three points higher than previous IMF predictions.  International capital is now flowing faster into Mexico as this emerging market is accelerating.  Lower debt and sound economic fundamentals are getting the attention of individual and institutional … (0 comments)

investment property: Investing in the Antithesis of Wall Street - 07/06/10 01:37 PM

The New York Times published a article last week that should not come as a surprise to workers, investors, or anyone looking to retire.  Apparently, Wall Street firms and most notably private equity firms have too much money to invest and not enough time to invest it.  Private equity firms typically tie up investors' money for around 10 years but need to invest the money within the first 3 to 5 years of a fund's or business's life.  If the firms are not able to find a suitable business/fund to invest their clients money in, they are supposed to return … (0 comments)

investment property: Bloomberg: Miami Faces 80% Chance of Being Hit By BP Oil Spill - 07/05/10 02:43 AM

Bloomberg reported yesterday that Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach and the Florida Keys face a 61-80 percent chance of the BP’s tar balls reaching their popular beaches and precious real estate.  They face a greater probability of being affected because the black oil has entered the Gulf’s loop current which snakes eastward and around the tip of Florida.  If the nasty tar balls arrive on the billion dollar beaches of Miami, Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, the real estate market and coastal Florida economy could face a catastrophe.
 
The real estate market in many places along the Gulf and … (0 comments)

It just turned 4:00 AM.  You’re tossing and turning in your bed...and not because you overate at dinner last night.  Your mind is churning.  You have gnawing questions about the future.   Have I saved enough to retire?  Is this roller-coaster stock market going to sink my retirement plans?  Will I have to downsize my retirement beach house to a beet farm?
 
This is how many retiring boomers spend their sleeping hours these days.  In fact, only 18% of workers are very confident they will have enough money to retire comfortably, down … (0 comments)
