When it comes to buying real estate in any country, having an experienced and knowledgeable agent is key.
Susan has lived in La Paz for over eleven years and has been involved in the real estate industry in La Paz and all over Mexico as an agent, as the closing director for the oldest cross-border mortgage company in Mexico. And she has written many articles about La Paz and real estate for local and international publications.
Before moving to La Paz, Susan was a real estate broker in San Jose California where she sold real estate and ran her own mortgage company.
” Real estate practice has come a long way in the eleven years I have been here.” says Susan. ” when I first hung out my shingle and announced that I believed in escrow and title insurance, I was almost run out of town. Now there are escrow and title services by US companies, and many wonderful closing agents. And we have a statewide Multiple Listing Service. This was unheard of even five years ago.”
Buying real estate in Mexico is safe as long as you follow the rules and don’t leave your brains at the border.
