LRM: Buying in Playa del Carmen…a dream come true!
You’ve been on holiday several times in Playa del Carmen and have fallen in love with the place, you have been considering buying a property in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, but you don’t know if as a Canadian or an American you can fully own a property there…
Yes, Canadian and Americans can actually own a property in Mexico, through a bank trust.
Here are a few guidelines that will help you through the process of buying in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
First of all, you need to make sure that you really like the place, that it is where you want to spend all your holidays, or retire or possibly raise a family and start a business.
You need to be sure that it’s a place where you’ll feel at home, safe and happy. Not very difficult though when it’s Playa del Carmen!
The whole Yucatan Peninsula is actually one of the safest places in Mexico and Playa del Carmen has a unique Caribbean vibe…at night and during the day!
Then, once you know for sure you like the area, you need to find a great and knowledgeable agent. Someone who will find the perfect property for you; the one that will meet all your desires. Investing in a property is a big thing, it’s a big decision and whether it’s in your home country or in Playa del Carmen, you shouldn’t settle for less than a perfect match!
In addition,choosing a professional agency such as Living Riviera Maya, with experience and credentials, will guide you through each step of the buying process. Their role is to help you choose the best property at the best price that fits your requirements.
The agency will take measures to protect you financially and make sure the title of the property is clear. Ideally, you should work with someone who speaks your language and knows very well all the local customs.
Last but not least, you will need to hire a good notary. Your real estate agency will help you with that, not to worry.
The notario in Mexico has higher education and is only person who can legally create titles for property or who can convey already existing title between people. That is one of the major differences in buying real estate in Mexico.
That person will go through all the paperwork and legal aspects. Mexico is not Canada or the USA so it’s preferable to work with someone really specialized in Mexican laws and regulations.
If all that is done correctly, you will become the happy owner of a Playa del Carmen real estate, with no bad surprises, no extra bills and where you will be able to relax and enjoy all the wonders of your new paradise!
