Client Testimonials

After looking at properties with other agents, without success, we contacted Richard to show us one of his listings. While we did not like that particular property, Richard managed to find us the perfect, off-market property that was exactly what we wanted. After expertly negotiating a great price, he then listed our place and was able to get a record price in the building. Richard really went way beyond any service we have had from other realtors and his experience got us a great buy and a quick sale - we were thrilled!

I was introduced to Rob Boyd almost 3 years ago through a mutual friend when we decided to purchase a property in Puerto Vallarta. What I felt would be difficult, turned out to be a wonderful experience. Rob was professional, caring and understanding of all our needs and found our perfect property. He also guided us through the buying process in Mexico; every difficulty was handled with expert experience, including getting our utilities transferred over. To say I was pleased would be an understatement, so much so, we purchased a second property through him in 2022 for my business partner!

Mexico Real Estate & Lifestyle FAQs

You have questions about real estate in Mexico and we have the answers.  Our combined experience in this property market makes us real estate experts in Puerto Vallarta and Mexico.  Read some quick facts below or contact us to answer your questions.

Yes, foreigners can own a property in Mexico. The only difference is that if the property is located within 50km from the coastline or 100 km from the Mexican border the title must be held in a trust.   

A bank trust is used when a foreigner wants to buy a property in Mexico within 50 km from the coastline or 100 km from the Mexican border. It holds the title of the property in trust for the owner. The owner has all the same rights and obligations. The only difference is that the trust must be renewed every 50 years and there is an annual cost to run the trust of approximately US$500.   

Closing costs are around 5% in the Vallarta area. This will include fees such as escrow, notary (Title), taxes, lawyer and permits.

You do not need any special immigration documents to buy in Mexico. We do recommend that you get temporary or permanent residency before you sell as it will reduce your capital gains tax. Getting residency in Mexico does not affect your citizenship or residency in other countries.

There is a large expat community in Vallarta that is a mix of both full time and part time residents. During the season there are events nearly every day.

Yes, Vallarta has some of the best doctors in Mexico. Medical care is drastically cheaper than in the US and insurance is available. Most expats will have insurance to cover only major health issues as the cost to see even a specialist is very affordable.

Yes, you can bring your fur babies to Mexico. All that is needed is a vet certificate and an up-to-date record of shots.

No, you do not need a car in Vallarta. Taxis and Ubers are cheap and easy to get. Parking is sometimes difficult in old town and a lot of things are also within walking distance.
