Today's Dallas Morning News was touting Mexico as being a great place for baby boomer migration. Before I purchased at the Beach Villas, we also looked long and hard at Mexico as one of our options. So what made us choose Hawaii?
1 - It is the United States of America.
2 - No other place in the world is like Hawaii, not just the physical part like the beaches but the people and the "Aloha" spirit that is shared with visitors and residents alike.
3 - The ongoing drug violence in Mexico – more than 6,200 people killed last year. When the Chief of Police in Rosarito and other high ranking officials were beheaded with their heads placed on the sand at the beach, we decided no.
The article continues to mention that 78 million American baby boomers are racing toward retirement, Mexican and American investors are betting that in the coming years tens of thousands of them will look at Mexico as a potential home.
I would venture to say that some of those 78 million Americans will choose Hawaii in the good old USofA and that's a good thing for anyone purchasing Real Estate here in Hawaii.
Please allow me to represent you as your buyers agent on selection day. There is no cost to you and your purchase price is exactly the same. What you select and how much you pay will make a big difference in your profitability; both from an appreciation standpoint and if renting, covering expenses. Afterwards, we can also work together to "get heads in beds".
