Mexican Government Takes an Americans Condo

Mexican Government Takes an Americans Condo

The link below will take you a disturbing article about an unfortunate situation in Mexico. The buyer purchased a condo at a beautiful resort in Puerto Peñasco-Rocky Point, called Bella Sirena. The majority of properties purchased by foreigners down here are perfectly safe if the buyer obtained their “Bank Trust” to protect them as the true owner.

This is the link to the article and I had commented on:

http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/rocky-point-condo-owner-fights-eviction-in-lien-battle-7336617

 

My comment:
The Mexican government does not take property. Foreigners CAN own property in Mexico.

Away from the coastlines and borders, a foreigner can own property with direct title just like a Mexican citizen. Along the coastline (and borders) a foreigner CAN own through a bank trust. That is full legal ownership. Info:http://www.mexicanbeachbum.com/Bank_Trust…/page_2528681.html

I feel for the condo owner, Donna. Unfortunately she did not receive her title (bank trust) until it was too late. She is paying for the sins of Pelican Partners, who should have made sure she was getting her title/bank trust.

This is another educational opportunity for buyers to learn from, and know they should consult a licensed real estate agent wherever they purchase. There is NO cost for consulting. Your agent will “register” the buyer with the development and then the buyer can consult with the agent to make sure the developer’s process is correct and the buyer is protected. If a buyer goes direct to the development, guess who the development looks out for? There have been THOUSANDS of successful transactions that are never published, so this case is uncommon. There are many, many more good transactions but we never heard about the good ones that get processed and foreigners get their titles successfully. Unfortunately BAD NEWS SELLS but this is still a good opportunity to bring light to a situation that could have been prevented.

 

HERE IS ANOTHER ONE!!!!!

My comment:
ANOTHER ONE! With no Bank Trust. Jason, the CBS reporter said a bank trust is like title insurance in the U.S., why do reporters make up stuff? The homeowner said they have no rights. By not getting their bank trust, they pretty much waived their rights. YES THEY DO have rights. At least listen to what the Mexican Consulate says (in Phoenix) in the video he says these are no reasons NOT to buy here. DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE if you consider buying a property here, that means using a licensed agent with references. All this hassle CAN be prevented. Enough is enough. Again, bad news sells and the media is always all over it, and they reported it wrong, again.

Cruise Ship Home Port Rocky Point Mexico

PUERTO PEÑASCO – The sound of heavy machinery scraping against rocks and an overwhelming smell of diesel fuel invade an otherwise serene desert beach where Mexico will spend roughly $100 million building its first cruise ship home port.BIZ-Cruise Ship Port 3

The Mexican government chose to build the port in this sleepy beach town — better known as Rocky Point — because of its proximity to the United States and potential to become an international tourism destination.

“It is the most important project the city has ever had,” said Miguel Guevara, director of promotion and international affairs for the city…more: http://cronkitenewsonline.com/2015/04/rocky-point-cruise-ship-port/

Oxygen-Hyperbaric Therapy in Rocky Point Mexico

Just read this article in “JOINUS”. About hyperbaric oxygen therapy, very interesting. When I lived in Vallarta for a couple years, I notice there was a clinic for this too and they focused on sessions for Autistic children, a very interesting concept. I don’t know much about it except that oxygen does help in cell regeneration. Hmm, fountain of youth right here in Rocky Point?

Rocky Point Spa Days- Capricho

Capricho continues to be my favorite place to go for girl stuff like gelish nails and pedicures. The staff is always friendly, easy to make an appointment, competitive prices, and English is spoken. I have been taking different friends to Capricho’s so they can see for themselves how nice this salon is. It’s very relaxing and is a great place to “escape”. Capricho is located in Plaza Pelicano (where Yummy Salads USED to be). I was getting a pedicure yesterday and took a few photos, one shows the fire department and arrows on the graphic where the shrimp park is. Very easy to find once you have the idea. Parking is great and plenty of it. I sometimes grab an iced mocha at the coffee shop in the same plaza, then go for my nails or pedicure. This time I did not get a french polish. I got PINK, wow very unusual for me but it is really pretty. I have worn french nails for many years and on rare occasions I get my toes painted a different color.

Ivette did my pedicure again, you can see the massage machine they use. You can also see from where I was sitting (in the pedicure massage chair) that it was getting very busy and people waiting for their turn.

What was really cute yesterday was seeing that the owner (Denise Laguna) had her son Mauricio with her. He was helping Ivette with the color options at the nail station. He was there the whole time I was there and he was very well behaved. Mauricio was calm and helpful to his mom and is a very handsome boy.

Also in the photos below took a photo from an ad in one of the local papers so you can see more details, address, phone etc.
