Seller Tip


 Don't Forget the 'Windshield Effect' When Perfecting Your Listing

''Most sellers concentrate on getting the inside of their homes ready for visiting buyers. While this is, of course important many miss the most important moment in the presentation of their home: The so-called "windshield effect." By the time buyers enter a home they already formed opinions. They already have emotional imprints and reactions. The property, including your seller's "stuff" spread around the outside of the home, gives them clues about the sellers and, most importantly, their motivation for sale..''  


Buyer Tip

  Buying Real Estate in Mexico and the Mexican Notary Public

''There are great differences between the United States notary public and Mexican notary public. In the United States the notary public may be the local butcher, the new accounts clerk at the bank, the secretary at the office, or practice any other occupation. 
In Mexico, the notary public (notario p´┐Żblico) is a public official appointed by the State Governor. He has the capacity to attest and certify documents and business and legal transactions that require authenticity.

    How To Rent Your Home To Vacationers

''Creating an inventory and reference binder will greatly help you and your guests. Make sure to write down a thorough list of your home's entire inventory as well as provide instructions for your guests. These can include information on garbage pickup, how to work the stereo, maps of the area and emergency phone numbers. ''

''A purchase of Canada Bread, one of two dominant bakery companies in the country, would build on Bimbo's large U.S. acquisitions in recent years and strengthen the Mexican company's position as the top bread maker in North America. Bimbo has expanded its U.S. footprint in recent years, acquiring Sara Lee Corp's North American bakery business for $959 million in 2010 and buying Hostess Brands Inc's Beefsteak bread brand last year."
