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

Here are some of the more interesting properties I discovered while surfing the classified site. The first one, the sorkeling tour below has some beautiful photos and a video.
I would consider most of the postings I've included as being exceptional for their class. For example, there is a home listed in Lake Chapala for $169,000 with $25 k down.
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

A root canal, a post and a cap recently cost an American lady living in Ajijic less than four hundred dollars. She felt very lucky because she was sure this same procedure would have cost her two thousand dollars in the States.
Just another reason to live in Mexico! You can afford to see the dentist even if you don’t have any insurance.
So, if you need a lot of dental work done it’s very possible for you to save thousands of dollars…Continue

Remember the old expression “Now Your Cooking with Gas”? Well that’s just what we do here everyday. We also heat water, dry our clothes and on rare occasion take the chill off of our homes on the few cold nights here. Some folks who don’t use solar also heat their pools with gas.
When I say gas I mean propane gas, not natural gas. Pictured is a typical propane tank.
Most couples find that their gas costs approx $25 USD per month on…Continue

registration/ownership in your name, and
3) a credit card or cash to cover a bond for the vehicle.

Long ago, but not far away, four hundred Nahuatl Indian warriors held off and repelled four thousand Spaniards for four years. Their tale is one of fearless, exhaustive innovation toward maintaining their remote speck of land, positioned in the middle of Lake Chapala. This marvelous piece of Mexican real estate, Mexcala Island, awaits its rightful recognition in the annals of Mexican history, for it tells a story of determination, rather than one of conquest.

Hi Everyone, I recently was reading a blog by a guy that is extremely rich… but from what I’ve learned about him he values much more than just consistently earning big bucks.
I’ve become a fan of his I guess because I feel so in tune with his ideas. Now, I don’t have anywhere near his material wealth, but we each have the abundance mind set.
We’re in good company too. The abundance mindset is employed by very…
