An Interesting City for Referrals -- Tijuana, mexico

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Venture Realty International

You may not think of Tijuana as a possible city for referrals but it is amazing how many US and Canadian citizens are living here.  The prices here for housing, medical care and pharmaceuticals are dramatically lower than in the US.  The medical care is excellent and it is easy to adapt to this multicultural and international city.

Another big reason that many people like to move here is that just across the border are services that are available in the US.  For example, veterans can live her on a extremely low budget but dash across the border for health care from the Veterans Administration.

Many people move here for the cost of housing and commute to jobsin the US. I also have friends who have set up internet related businesses here to escape the high taxes in California.

As an example of the housing prices, I decided to rent an apartment for the present time to use as a base while I travel (along with my home in Wyoming).  I found a townhouse style apartment on a hill overlooking the border.  It is three huge rooms, 1 1/2 baths, 2 huge balconies and an extremely large bedroom. And it is about 800 square feet. The floors are tile and the the view out my window is awesome.  I can see all over the city and even into the US.  My friends are shocked when they look out the window and see San Diego.  And my rent is equal to $150 US dollars.  The building and my apartment are very secure so I can travel and it is actually cheaper than renting a storage unit across the border.

Oh, I almost forgot -- across the border you have the San Diego Zoo.  I spent the day there and sometime this week I will share some of the photos.

Wow, that sounds like an incredible deal.  Is it just as easy to live there as in the U.S.?  Do you ever run into trouble crossing the border?

It is great and I find it very easy to live here.  It is different but I found I adapted quickly.  I was apprehensive at first about traffic but now find I drive anywhere.  Also the public transportation is everywhere and does not cost much at all.  The border can be a problem because the US entry has lines most of the time.  That can be solved by getting a special pass (Sentri card) which allows access to a very rapid lane. Most individuals who commute to work or visit the US often will get one.Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Gary,

$150 is a great deal for a 3 bedroom townhouse. I haven't been to Mexico in a long time so I bet it is a lot different now. And nice that you can go visit the SD Zoo.
