Convenient Process of Home Purchase

Buying a home in a different country can be an overwhelming endeavor. You'll probably be hesitant especially if you're not familiar with the process. Though it may seem complicated buying a home in Mexico is a relatively simple process.

Parties involved in the transaction include:

  • Buyer (or the legal representative of the buyer)
  • Seller (or the legal representative of the seller)
  • A real estate agent or company
  • Closing agent
  • Escrow agent
  • Notary public
  • Bank
  • Appraisers
  • Land Offices
  • Registry Office

The process of Buying a Home:

  • Making an Offer
  • Deciding on a Contract
  • Third-party Escrow
  • Fideicomiso (bank trust)
  • Closing

The Fideicomiso is a vital organization that manages laws involving foreigners buying real estate. Any land within 50km off the coast or 100km off the border is restricted land in Mexico. The Fideicomiso provides a trust valid for 50 years to allow a beneficiary to purchase a real estate. Using this law, foreigners can legally buy properties in the country.

Once you've got a good idea of the overall process of purchasing a home, you'll want to identify the primary purpose of the property you are buying.

Location! Location! Location!

If you have identified the purpose of the property you're purchasing, you'll need to consider the location of homes for sale in Los Cabos. If you plan to buy a rental property, you may want to consider beachfront condominiums and other residential developments that offer property management services. There are various gated communities, resort condominiums, and luxury developments that provide a variety of rental and income sharing options for a buyer.
