The good folks at Wordpress suggested that I re-visit some of the themes that were read most last year. Makes sense to me, if that’s the information people are looking it should be as up-to-date as I can make it. One of the most common searches was the cost…Continue

Living in Los Cabos: After the Rain
Rain in the desert is a big deal. We love it, although the tourists are disappointed the locals are ready to celebrate. Yesterday we had a very cloudy day and most parts of town got a good soak.

It should go without saying that you don’t leave your…Continue

Hello to All,
Today I sent out a query to all of the members of the classified ad website inquiring as to the condition of the Real Estate market in their area. I gues the results were not shocking. They were pretty much as I had expected in all parts of Mexico. Where it was different it was because of the individual agent and not the existing market conditions. I'm referring to our own Michele Kinnon. She seems to be swimming upstream and doing a good job of bucking the…Continue

There's a super deal in Ensenada overlooking the Bay.
We have some really super deals. If you're not interested in buying a…Continue
