There are many reasons to chose to work with a real estate agent: Lack of time to look for a home, the need to invest wisely, or to have someone that knows the process of purchasing real estate in Mexico.
A good real estate agent can be a crucial element in finding your dream property. Think of the broker as an advisor that is knowledgeable about the market, the neighbourhoods and can help you buy the ideal place for the right budget.
If you decide to work with a real estate agent, follow our tips and pick with confidence!
VISIT THE REALTORS OFFICE
Anyone can post an ad on the internet, and there are many informal sellers out there. It is essential to visit the real estate agent office and know the person you will be trusting with your money, property or investment.
CHECK THEIR CREDENTIALS
If you are looking for the ideal real estate in Mexico, it is important not to assume everyone out there is certified. Ask your realtor for their credentials, and check your local A.M.P.I. branch for certified professionals in the area.
Explore the websites of local real estate companies and make sure to pick the one with an ample portfolio so you can see as many properties as possible before taking the big step.
If you happen to know other expats in the area, ask them about the process of purchasing properties in Mexico, as well as recommendations about local realtors.
FIND SOMEONE THAT SPEAKS YOUR LANGUAGE
Ideally, your realtor should be able to communicate with you. If you are a foreigner purchasing real estate in Mexico, make sure he/she has experience helping other foreigners like you.
Make your realtor lives in the area, and can give you accurate advice about living in the city. A local realtor can share their knowledge and give you tidbits of information that no one else can!
Buying real estate in Mexico can be a little bit daunting, but having the right team of professionals on your side can save: time, money and headaches.
