"Great video Michael - I am aware of Melaque and love it.  It reminds me of our quaint little fishing village before it has been found.  I miss this and would consider Melaque if/when I choose to leave La Cruz de Huanacaxtle (PV).  The…"

Carol Billups commented on Doug Jones's blog post Excellent time to buy in Mexico - especially if you're Canadian!
"Absolutely! Our market (Los Cabos, Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo) has certainly picked up lately. People are snapping up the true bargains, which won't last forever. If you're sitting on the fence waiting to see if we go lower:…"

Tell us about yourself, type of business, last employment
I have traveled throughout Mexico for the last 30 years. I opened a mortgage brokerage in Mexico and have been helping Canadians and US Citizens purchase homes in Mexico, using financing, since 2004. Many people who already own in Mexico are pulling cash out of the equity in their Mexico homes using our different mortgage loan programs. No one in Mexico has more lending experience than I, and we have all the available sources of loan programs available in Mexico.

Excellent time to buy in Mexico - especially if you're Canadian!

Some people are thinking that prices in Mexico are currently very low, "but maybe they will go down a bit more.” We are

seeing some good movement in the upper end of the market ($1M plus

properties). Although no one has a crystal ball with a clear vision of

the future, I consider people looking for high-end properties to be good money

managers - what I call "smart money."…

Real Estate Market Update - Sense of Urgencey

I know it has been difficult in the current market to create a sense of urgency with buyers - prices are excellent, "but maybe they will go down a bit more." Have you heard this? We are seeing some

good movement in the upper end of the market ($1M plus properties).

Although no one has a crystal ball with a clear vision of the future, I

consider people…

NAFTA Flu

It looks like ground zero where the swine flu has started is a US company who moved some operations to Mexico to avoid US environmental regulations. Looks like the flu will have far reaching affects beyond the actual virus. Check out this article http://www.narconews.com/Issue57/article3512.html

Linda Ellerby on safety in Mexico

Thought everyone would find this insightful and true to the experience we know about Mexico.



One Journalist’s View of Mexico



By Linda Ellerbee







Sometimes I’ve been called a maverick because I don’t always agree

with my colleagues, but then, only dead fish swim with the stream all

the time. The stream here is Mexico.







You would have to be living on another planet to avoid hearing how

dangerous Mexico has become,… Continue

Hi Doug...just wanted to say thank you for your advice about driving through Laredo vs. Tijuana. It helped a lot. You gave me this advice awhile ago, but just wanted to say thank you! Btw? I have had my car (from the states) here now for about five months. As you know you get a six month permit for the car and then you are required to return to the border. Do you know if they readily issue a new visa with car permit right away or can there be problems?
