“Mexico’s banking system is well capitalized and positioned to deal with severe shocks after proving resilient during the 2008-2009 global financial crisis,” stated analysts from the IMF, after completing an assessment of the country’s financial sector in 2011.

Growth of Cancun 1978 - 2007
 
Finding and taking advantage of real estate booms can be a risky and tedious proposition, especially when looking internationally.  Real estate deals sometimes look enticing from a distance but a granular look exposes weaknesses.  Yet, once in a while you stumble across an opportunity that your common sense tells you is obvious.  Something that you have seen happen before and you sense it will happen again.  Such an opportunity may be unfolding on Mexico’s Caribbean coast.
 
 
First, there was Cancun.  In 1970, Cancun, Mexico was an undeveloped and uninhabited barrier island. … (0 comments)

mexico real estate: U.S. Trades China for Mexico - 08/20/10 05:09 AM

According to a report from CNN Money, Mexico has defeated China as the #1 place to manufacturing assembly products bound for the United States.  Mexico is becoming so much more attractive that even Chinese companies are moving to Mexico to take advantage of NAFTA benefits when exporting to the U.S.
 
It makes sense.  Mexico offers better access to the U.S. with faster, shorter and cheaper transportation routes as apposed to shipping products thousands of miles by ship across the Pacific as is the case when manufacturing in China.  Many of these manufacturing companies moving to Mexico are actually owned … (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)

mexico real estate: Millions of Americans Are Moving Next Door (to Mexico) - 08/04/10 08:22 AM

Despite hyped-headlines about drug war violence, Mexico, surprisingly, remains the reining #1 favorite vacation spot for North Americans.  In fact, the number of American visitors coming to Mexico is up about 30% from this same time last year.

mexico real estate: Energized Economy Raises Middle Class in Mexico - 07/23/10 06:00 AM

With headlines of drug lords dominating the news, it’s easy to imagine Mexico to be a place with little hope.  The fact is, in many cases, quite the opposite is true.  In tourist rich areas of the country, like Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, the middle class is burgeoning and most Mexicans say their future appears to be brighter than ever, more than it has in generations.    
 
In Playa del Carmen, thousands of miles removed from border-town drug wars, brand new VW’s, Chevy’s and other inexpensive cars (along with a few BMW’s and Mercedes) pull into the parking lot … (0 comments)

mexico real estate: Can I make money with my vacation property? - 07/20/10 08:48 AM

Many people are considering buying a second or vacation home in Mexico and only want to spend a few weeks or part of the year in it.  The financial opportunity exists to make enough rental income to cover the property's costs.  A purely hands-off rental investment property is extremely desirable.  You can generate income while a property in the Riviera Maya appreciates in value.  Certainly not the case now, or in the near future, anywhere in the US.  How can this be accomplished?
 
The first factor to consider is tourism figures.  The Riviera Maya, along the beautiful Caribbean coast, … (0 comments)
