Seller Tip

     Costs and taxes when selling a Mexican property

''Depending on your nationality, your 'home' government may require you to pay taxes on any gains you realize from your Mexican property. Whether you have to pay, and how much depends on your country's tax policies, your residency status, and whether your home country has a tax-agreement in place with Mexico (if it does, then usually any taxes you pay to the Mexican government can be deducted from any additional taxes owed to your home government).''  



Buyer Tip

   Costs and taxes when buying Mexican Property

''If you are buying a house in a gated community, or an apartment, be sure to check on the annual service fees, and have these put in writing. Service fees can range from US$100 a year to US$1000+ a year, depending on location, number of houses or apartments in the enclosure and amenities offered.''

Rental Tip

        10 Tips for renting a home overseas

''When moving abroad, 
renting  a place to stay is an 
attractive option that offers a 
lot of advantages, whether 
you're headed to Costa Rica,Malaysia, France, Mexico, 
Ecuador,Ireland...or any country.
If you plan to buy or build a 
home eventually, renting allows 
you to investigate a region and/or community...or several...before
