     Home Sellers: Tips To Make Small Rooms Appear Larger

''Buyers want spacious homes. That's why as a home seller, it's important to make sure you show off every square foot of your home so that potential home buyers can visualize enough room for all of their belongings.  So if you are selling a home that is "spaciously challenged" there are things you can do to accent positives and make every space look bigger so that you can sell your home faster."

 

 

Buyer Tip



     Should You Rent Or Buy A Home In Retirement?

''As you most likely know, if you buy a home, your property taxes will generally be tax-deductible, as will your mortgage interest payments if you finance the purchase. 
If you rent, you'll be out of luck, tax-wise, although you may be able to write off a portion of the rental as a home office if you run, say, a consulting business from there. 
Keep in mind, though, that tax deductions won't be as valuable to you if your income and tax rate drop after you retire, which is pretty likely.

Rental Tip

          Funding retirement with rental income

"Real estate can be a wonderful asset to have in retirement, because when you have tenants, you have money coming in every month and, if you don't have pensions, that's important," says Barbara Pietrowski, a Certified Financial Planner in Roanoke, Va., who specializes in rental real estate. According to author and landlord Andrew McLean, you may not need to produce a profit right away to make the purchase of an income-producing property worthwhile, especially if you are secure financially and have the right time horizon to retirement.''

Hola amigos! 

 
Hopefully this newsletter finds you well! We are catching our breath after a very busy summer in the city. School is back in session, so we bid goodbye to our summer visitors! We will soon find out if the weekends continue to be bustling or not.


There are two events regarding tourism worth noting this week. The Playa Espiritu project is moving forward, with a new hotel opening in December. And in November, a Canadian is attempting a record setting bungee jump off of the Baluarte Bridge. Good luck, Greg Nelson!


The city is not resting during this time period! The status of the port is in the news again and Holcones now has an emergency generator so water supply disruptions should no longer be an issue during storms. Citizens of Cerro de la Niveria were able to talk with the mayor regarding the potential new tower this week, as well.


This is the newsletter where the agents get to pick properties that are their personal favorites. Four properties were singled out for you to look over this time. Read the agent notes; each property has its own unique advantages and charms! Any questions? Contact us!


Have a fabulous weekend!


      Your Solutions Mazatlan team :)

''With lower costs for medical treatment and its location, Mexico could be the operating room for Americans requiring medical treatment. The Mexican Employers Association (Coparmex) says that by betting on medical tourism, the country could capture as much as US $1.7 billion annually by treating 120,000 patients from the United States."

Texas Senator Hinojosa: U.S., Canada and Mexico to be "bigger than OPEC"  

"Just last week, Mexico cleared its final legislative hurdle ending 76 years of state monopoly and approved rules outlining the framework under which foreign companies will invest and drill for oil and natural gas in Mexico. 
The recent expansion of oil and gas production in Northern Mexico is expected to top $1 trillion in investment over 10 years and create over 2.5 million new jobs by 2025 creating a new energy paradigm for North America. By combining the United States, Canada, and Mexico, oil and gas production in North America will be bigger than OPEC.
