Retiring in Mexico

In a lot of people’s minds, Mexico is mainly seen as a desirable holiday destination, with its perfect sandy beaches and turquoise water, the hospitality of its people and a rich culture and history. For many years, people would come to visit and then dream of retiring in Mexico because they fell in love with the land and its people. In recent years, however, finances enter the equation, and people choose to retire in Mexico hoping to get more for their hard-earned dollar. As Mexico retirement is becoming increasingly more popular, it is questionable just how much of those people’s expectations are actually met once they move. So, what are the pros and cons of retiring in Mexico from the US or elsewhere?

 

Benefits of a Mexico retirement

Climate. This is perhaps an obvious advantage, but its importance shouldn’t be underestimated. Mexico’s year-round sunny weather is often one of the first things that draw people to think about retiring there. This is especially true if you are coming from a place where sunshine isn’t such a common visitor.

Sunny weather means you will have the opportunity to spend a lot of your time outdoors. It will allow you to really enjoy your days in retirement. You might choose to plant and work on a garden full of flowers or spices. You may just want to make the most of your proximity to the beach. If you are planning an active retirement in general, Mexico is the place for you. You will have to alter your routine slightly to include applying sunscreen and wearing a hat every day. You will surely agree that this is but a small price to pay. The only downside of Mexico’s climate is the risk of hurricanes (in the South).

Keeping yourself active during your Mexico retirement

If you decide to retire in Mexico, chances are you have an adventurous spirit and aren’t quite planning to spend your retirement sitting on the porch reading or knitting. Mexico is an ideal place for those planning an active retirement. The beaches are an obvious spot for recreation and enjoyment, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Besides swimming, diving and snorkeling, Mexico also offers incredible opportunities for fine dining.

Not only that, but if you get sick of trying out the restaurants that are on the fancier side, there are plenty of street food vendors where you are likely to taste some of the best foods Mexico has to offer. Most Mexican towns also boast lively markets and there are also lots of historical sites worth visiting throughout the country. All of these activities hold ample opportunities for meeting like-minded people, and Mexicans are generally a people with a very sunny, friendly disposition.

Cost of Living

The favorable exchange rate between dollars and pesos means getting more for your money down south. On top of that, the cost of living in Mexico is much lower than that in the US, in most areas. As far as Mexican real-estate goes, beach-front properties can be on the pricey side because of their desirable location. In that case, experts suggest finding a property that’s slightly more inland but still close to the beach. This way your house won’t break the bank but you’ll still be close to the water. There is even a chance of actually saving money on your Mexico retirement if you keep your costs at an appropriate level, which shouldn’t be a problem.

The downsides of expat life in Mexico

Lifestyle changes

Experts suggest being careful when making a decision to move. This is true in general, but especially when you are moving to a different country. No matter how close it is, Mexico’s culture is still a lot different from what you are probably used to. Even if you thoroughly enjoyed yourself and liked everything on your holidays there, this does not mean you would enjoy living there. People make the mistake of retiring in Mexico for its climate and the financial benefits and completely disregard everything else. Once they are there, they are in for a rude awakening.

Things function a bit differently in Mexico. Being prepared for unpleasant surprises and being flexible when making any plans is necessary if you are hoping for a happy life in Mexico. Having an adventurous spirit and genuinely admiring the people and their culture will also be a great aid. Just be ready to adjust and in some cases abandon what you consider your way of doing things. One of the main expat annoyances is bureaucracy. Not only is it tedious when it comes to immigration in Mexico, but it is present in almost every aspect of life in Mexico.

Proximity to the US

So, you have decided to retire in Mexico. You’ve packed the things you will need and are leaving the rest behind. Perhaps you needed to find affordable long term storage units in your area where you left the belongings you probably won’t need when you go to Mexico. But they’re still there, ready for you to come and get them when you decide to. While you can do this with your things, unfortunately, you can’t with your friends and family that stayed behind. One of the downsides of living in heaven on Earth is that everyone and their uncle will feel the urge to visit you. It would be one thing if you had decided to retire somewhere across the world, but you haven’t. You’re right there. However, a less cynical view of this would be that it’s a bonus. You can get anywhere in the US in about 2 hours by plane. In Puerto Penasco-Rocky Point, Mexico, it’s a 1 hour drive to the Arizona border, then 2.5 hours to either Phoenix or Tucson

Driving around

While infrastructure is much better than it used to be, there are still some things to look out for. Many of the local roads have large speed bumps called topes that can damage the suspension on your car and even the tires. You may not notice them until it’s too late, especially if you’re driving at night. You should also bear in mind that the rules aren’t always what you would expect, so pay close attention to the signs.

Pros and cons of buying a vacation home

 Pros and cons of buying a vacation house

Everyone adores that special time when they get to simply relax and have fun with their family. Whether you love going to the mountains or down to the lake, it’s always great to simply get away for a while. And all that relaxation might get you thinking about getting a piece of that heaven. You might start thinking about buying a vacation house. However, there are many things to consider before actually making that investment. That is, it is quite a big move that you have to consider carefully. Here are some pros and cons of buying a vacation house.

Pros of buying a vacation house

Of course, as with any type of investment, the best thing you can do is truly consider every facet. You need to look at your dreams from a realistic perspective. You might be dead-set on, for instance, even moving to Florida after a great week at the famous beaches of Miami. But you need a basis, a carefully thought-out plan. Here are some of the pros of buying a vacation house.

It is consistently perfect, and consistently yours

There is a certain allure to consistency, knowing that you get to go to your little piece of paradise every summer. And, why not, even winter. After buying a vacation house, you can get that feel of perfection every year. You can ensure that your kids have a great, stable, vacation every time. Also, if you’re set on visiting a certain place several times a year, it will certainly pay off more to buy it than to rent it every time you come.

With a vacation house, you can ensure your kids’ perfect vacation;

 

You basically have a second home

Having a second home is quite the appealing image. But imagine this: you’re retiring and you decide to retire and go on permanent vacation. Let’s say you’re from Texas and you want to escape from the sweltering heat. Your beach house awaits you, ready when you are, only with the added benefit of memories built there for decades. You simply pick up the phone and choose the best moving assistance in Texas and you’re there – living in paradise for the rest of your life. When you think about it, buying a vacation house actually means buying a second home for you and your family.

You can rent it out

Now, the amount you can earn from renting mainly depends on where you plan on buying a vacation house. If you buy a house near the beach, you can earn quite a lot of money. Nowadays, with various different sites involved in renting out someone’s vacation house, it is certainly easy to find people who are interested.

However, when considering renting out, you need to learn about the rules regarding tax. Also, you need to be able to handle the situation regarding maintenance efficiently.

Cons of buying a vacation house

There are also some drawbacks to buying a vacation house that you need to consider. Of course, while they all may be surmountable, you have to weigh the options yourself. Discuss them with your family and with an expert if you’re really set on taking this step. Sometimes, it’s okay to postpone our ideas for later and wait for the right time.

Your finances are not that great

Regardless of whether or not you can take out a mortgage, there are many other expenses to consider. First of all, you will have to pay for the maintenance, because you will not be there constantly. Maintenance includes repairs after storms, fixing any leaks, mowing the lawn etc. So, you need to map out your budget in the long run. If you’re not sure you can manage this step financially, it might be more prudent to postpone buying a vacation house.

 

Buying a vacation house is a hefty investment;

Another thing you should think about are the costs of furnishing the house. This can cost a pretty penny, especially when you’re thinking about buying new furniture. However, it might be a more affordable idea to simply move some of your furniture pieces from your house to your vacation home. After all, you don’t need that much while you’re on vacation. If you need moving services, find an affordable and efficient company, like Evolution Moving Company NB. Hiring professionals is much easier than going there and delivering it yourself.

You don’t actually go on vacation that often

It might be possible that you’re seeing your possible vacation paradise through rose-colored glasses. After all, you’ve returned rejuvenated, relaxed and refreshed. However, you should ask yourself a simple enough question – how often do you actually go on vacation? If you’re vacationing only one week a year, then it might be better to rent. That way, you will save yourself the money and the hassle. And nothing stops you from buying your home later on, when the opportunity arises.

Before you do that, consider another thing. If you’re moving abroad, it can be difficult to find the perfect home. That is why you should do extensive online research. If you’re considering Mexico as your destination, it’s best if you learn everything you can about Mexico real estate trends. There’s nothing better than good preparation. So make sure all your bases are covered when considering a purchase abroad.

What to consider before buying a vacation house?

As we’ve already mentioned, you have to approach buying a vacation house from a practical side. Here are some of the things you should consider before buying.

  • Location. Choose the location carefully. Some locations, no matter how alluring they may seem, are simply a waste of time and money.

The location of your vacation house is incredibly important;

 

  • Consider laws and regulations. This is particularly important if you’re buying a vacation house in a foreign country. For instance, if you’re considering moving to Rocky Point, Mexico, it would be best to learn all about the laws there. Otherwise, you may encounter obstacles along the way.
  • How much would maintenance cost? Draw up a plan to see how much maintenance will cost you in the long run. This will help you decide whether it is worth it.
  • Will you rent it? If you decide to rent it out, you have to consider the taxes and other costs.
  • Insurance. Insurance is pivotal with any type of property, especially when buying a vacation house. Because you’re not going to be there all the time, it’s best to take out insurance. However, if you’re renting it out, your vacation home will most likely not be liable for property insurance. But, you can always try other options.

Gadsden Hotel Douglas Arizona

I was with a friend last week who lost a family member, so 3 of us friends went on a 700 mile road trip to the funeral. We all live in Puerto Penasco-Rocky Point, Mexico. The services were in Douglas Arizona, then a quick visit across the border into Agua Prieta Mexico.

There was adventure at every turn on the drive there. Crazy hail storn on the freeway where many cars were pulled over waiting for it to pass. Then more rain on the drive there, then finally arrived in the early evening to the church for the service. That first evening we stayed at the Gadsden Hotel in Douglas Arizona. Had a chance to visit with the family, lots of love surrounding our friend. What a beautiful historic place to be. The owner, Florencio, took us up to our floor in the over 100 year old Otis elevator. The Tiffany glass is beautiful, and there was a wonderful grand staircase. History says that Pancho Villa was riding his horse up the staircase, and broke off a small piece of the stair with the hoof of the horse. The bar (I think Saddle and Spur) was very cute, I spent time there and the lounge in the lobby, learning new drinks from the owner, Rosa Anel. Yolanda the bartender was very sweet.

We had a very nice breakfast in the restaurant Casa Segovia, and the piano player in the lobby was awesome.

See below some photos, including the one of the copper mug I purchased from the bar, the last one with the logo!

I also went in to the little museum inside the hotel, really cool, seeing photos from the old West.
Although the trip was for  a sad occasion, we still had a good time visiting friends and family. The Mass and services were beautiful. We so much enjoyed the hotel, where the owners were very welcoming and accomodating. Excellent customer service. We plan on another trip!

Mexico Cruise Ship Home Port-Rocky Point/Puerto Penasco

There have been a few setbacks for the 1.4-billion-peso (US $93 million) cruise ship facility in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, but they appear to have been resolved and the first cruise ship is expected to arrive in the first half of next year.

Construction of the home port, so called because it will be a departure and arrival point for cruise ships, began in early 2013 but strikes by transport workers, issues with construction materials and political and environmental pressures have created delays.

Thank you Tony Richards from Mexico News Daily in English.

Mexico: A Smart Investment Opportunity?

Mexico: A Smart Investment Opportunity?

Thinking of making an investment in Mexico? Wells Fargo strategists explain why it could be a smart investment decision.wf_invest_mexico_lg
News stories from Mexico rarely highlight the country’s robust economic growth, a burgeoning car export industry or its rising national productivity. But many observers argue that the economic story is defining Mexico’s future. Investors who 10 years ago looked beyond the headlines and found merit in the country’s economic fundamentals and enlightened fiscal policies have seen the Mexican Bolsa equity index average a 21.7 percent annual gain during the 2003–2012 decade, according to Bloomberg and calculations from Wells Fargo Advisors.

Puerto Vallarta Kids rights march

Outside my office yesterday I heard what sounded like a parade. Turns out, it was a kid’s march. Kids and adults were marching down the main street in Puerto Vallarta with signs and chanting about kids not being exploited for work. They were all in white, carrying white balloons. As I left my desk to go look, I grabbed my camera as I always do, because you just never know when a good shot comes along. I took a few photos and video taped it. It was a nice “march” and they waved, the people in our building waved, there was a guy with a professional camera looking straight at me, my friend said “Hey Robin, looks look you might be on the Puerto Vallarta news”.  You will see how funny it looked when you see the video. He really looked like he was directing his comments to people upstairs.

It was cool to see all those sweet kids walking the street, carrying their signs and getting involved. It was later in the afternoon, so they were already out of school by the way. Link to my Youtube video: http://youtu.be/FA1bwRwFCBw

Puerto Vallarta, Come to the beach

The beach is just less than 2 Mexican blocks from my office. Mexican blocks are short!  It is nice to know that at any time I can leave and be at the beach in a 5 minute walk for a $1 beer at the Sea Monkey. They have palapas on the sand, and I can have my dog there. Not dog friendly under the building though. Just outside under the bar and under the palapas. Service is great. Food is good, as appetizer types go. I had a burger there once and it was really good.

Time to buy a place in Puerto Vallarta, so search the MLS here and find your place in the sun and head  “To The Beach”!

Puerto Vallarta “Making” Lizards

Last week I was taking photos of a beach front home in Puerto Vallarta that I will have available for sale soon, and when I was on one floor, I saw one lizard sunning himself. Very cute. When I went to the next level of the home, I looked and saw “he” had a friend, and that “he” must be a “she”. You can tell by the photos who is who.

I found it funny that it was only a matter of minutes between her starting her sun-bathing, then by the time I walked upstairs, there is the boyfriend, ready for action. Goodness, let the girl have her tan! Maybe he is shading her from the Puerto Vallarta sun, and he is a good protector…..NOT.

Loverboy didn’t waste any time, regardless, they were both very cute!

Boy, anything can be a blog, eh??

Puerto Vallarta Chihuahuas

I was walking to view a condo for a client today, and I was on Lazaro Cardenas, just one half block to the beach (Los Muertos Beach) in Puerto Vallarta. I walked by a dress store and saw this cute group waiting for someone to take their photo. I have seen these babies before when the store was open, and with the door wide open, and even when I had my little dog with me, these well behaved chihuahuas would not step one foot outside the store.

Today they were patiently waiting for their mommy to return. They were so precious, everyone that walked by said they wanted to just cuddle them and give lots of kisses to them.
