VISIT or LIVE in Mexico -  THE  FACTS

Contents: One Million Americans - Real Mexico - What most people don't know

 Why are One Million Americans moving to Mexico?

More Americans and Canadians have retired in Mexico
than to any other country in the world!

Depending on where they settle, many are drawn by the incomparable weather, gorgeous scenery, and inexpensive lifestyle. As our correspondent there, Suzan Haskins, reports: “Prices of everything are roughly one-third what they are in the U.S. and Canada. Housing styles range from basic to luxurious, and all are affordable on most retiree budgets.

“But it’s more than that, of course. Mexico is like a giant pot of delicious stew—there’s a lot brewing and there’s something for almost everyone. Modern and traditional, rich and poor, pagan and pious, sweet and sour.

“Sure, Mexico has its problems. Every place does. But the allure of its charms will cause you to ignore its blemishes. There are countless reasons for the attraction…many people are drawn by the low cost of living, but they stay because they fall in love with the colorful setting and the laidback lifestyle—and the Mexican people.

“Mexicans, in general, are gentle, kind, soft spoken, and excruciatingly polite. They greet everyone with a hug or, for women, a kiss on the cheek. You rarely see children misbehaving or hear them crying. Even the dogs are friendly.”

Here at International Living, we believe you don’t have to be a millionaire to live like one. The trick, of course, is knowing where to go. But we’ll make sure you do. We’ve been on this beat for 30 years now. And Mexico is just one of many beautiful, good-value, welcoming destinations you’ll hear about in the weeks to come.


 The real Mexico opportunity


For some people, Mexico brings images of corruption and bribery...

But that's the Mexico popularized by newspapers and television.

There's a real side of Mexico that you rarely see...

And it’s the reason Americans are moving south of the border in droves.

In many ways, Mexico today is like the U.S. was 50 years ago–before big government, big business, and special interests whittled away the lifestyle our parents took for granted...

Then, neighbors still trusted one another... and you could afford to raise a family on one income...

People were more family-focused... more relaxed.

They didn’t worry about random violence, mass shootings in schools and shopping malls... Life seemed safer... children could ride bicycles around town... they didn't worry about being abducted.

There was less crime... and less crime-fighting.

Unfortunately, that life is now gone in the U.S. But in Mexico, it's still much like that today. There, life is still relaxed, simple, and affordable...

You can still get quality health care without spending a fortune each month. For instance, the government-funded health care uses the same high-tech medical procedures that are available north of the border. But the cost is significantly less–only $270 per year.

That's your cost without any additional co-pay or deductible... and it includes all of your medications.

You can get car insurance from as little as $540 per year. And, you can live comfortably, even hire a housekeeper–on just $2,000 per month.

Our staff has traveled extensively throughout Mexico. Some have even moved and live there today. They've investigated the best places you can still live a good, happy life... without giving up the conveniences you're used to.

And we've written a report based on their findings. It's called “Mexico's Overlooked Retirement Havens – Retire in luxury without spending a fortune.”

I'd like to send you this report FREE if you'll also agree to have a no-risk look at the newly updated Mexico – The Owner's Manual...


 What most people don't know about Mexico

Unfortunately, most people never see the real Mexico. They get their ideas about Mexico from the resorts and tourist shops they visit on their holidays.

“According to UN statistics, you're 3 times more likely to be a victim of crime in the U.S. than you are in Mexico.”

But that description isn't any more accurate than a person visiting Disneyland, assuming they have seen the U.S.

And, for these people, Mexico outside the tourist areas is the Mexico they've seen on television... much like the old Wild West that the U.S. was so long ago.

But nothing could be further from the truth. Contrary to what the press would have us believe, Mexico is actually safer than the U.S.

According to UN statistics, you're 3 times more likely to be a victim of crime in the U.S. than you are in Mexico.

Recent FBI statistics paint the picture even more clearly... The murder rate (per 100,000 people) in Baltimore is 43.3... in Washington DC it is 29.1... and in Detroit 47.3... But in Mexico, the murder rate again is just a third of that... about 13.

Anyone can tell you that there are certain neighborhoods in Los Angeles, Washington, or Detroit you should avoid. That's where the crimes happen.  Likewise, people living in Mexico would tell you about isolated areas in their country (like in Mexico City, or those along the border) that you should avoid.

Unfortunately, when people vacation, they often leave their common sense at home. And sometimes they do risky things they wouldn't otherwise do.

The truth is, people in Mexico are more honest, friendly, and welcoming than the media would have you believe.

And there is a lot more to Mexico that most people just don't know...

  • According to U.S. government figures, Mexico's economy moved ahead of Canada's last year, making it the 12th largest economy in the world.
  • BusinessWeek reported on Mexico's growth too, saying, “The ranks of that middle class have swelled to record levels... Millions have access to mortgages, solid jobs provide security, and a class of strivers saves to put its kids through college.”
  • Unlike the U.S., Mexico is one of the world's largest oil exporters and sells 1.7 billion barrels of oil to the U.S. each day. As a result, Mexico's economy is actually strengthened by today's rising oil prices.
  • Mexico's stock market has also taken off. In fact, over the past five years, Mexican markets have outperformed U.S. stocks (as measured by the S&P500) by 10 to 1.
  • This year, Mexico's government has launched a 5-year, $250 billion program to build new highways, railways, airports and ports throughout the country.
  • And today, there are countless state-of-the-art hospitals and care homes being built specifically to service the aging baby boomers arriving from north of the border.

Mexico can give you all the conveniences of modern life that you're used to. It has a stable government and a First-World infrastructure, including high-speed internet, mobile telephone networks, high-tech medicine, paved multi-lane freeways, and much more.

Yet for millions of people, Mexico is still largely undiscovered. They know nothing, or very little, of the wonderful benefits this country has to offer.

But with the amount of changes taking place, we don't believe that the real Mexico will stay undiscovered for long...

 Invest in Mexico updated Opportunity

Mexico’s Vibrant Economy and Strong Peso
Make Investing in Mexico Particularly

With its growing GDP, a higher level of foreign direct investment than any other Latin country, and a current political climate that is more pluralistic and open to investment than any other of the last seven decades, investing in Mexico today offers high rewards with limited risk.

The peso is strong. Direct foreign investment is at an all-time high. It all bodes well for your investment in Mexico. You don’t have to worry about radical revaluation of the currency, or that social unrest will unseat the government. Mexico is well positioned for growth.

Why Investing in Mexico Makes so Much Sense Right Now

Investing in any foreign country comes with certain risks. There’s the strength of the country’s currency to consider, the health of its economy, its openness to foreign investment, its relative political stability, and the transparency of its laws. In many places around the world, the risks are high in nearly all of these categories.

Expanding Global Trade Relations

Mexico shares more than a 2,000-mile border with the United States. Yet many people have strikingly outdated conceptions of Mexico. The fact is that since the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Mexico has been, and continues to be, a major player in Western Hemisphere and world politics and economics.

Post-NAFTA Mexico boasts an incredibly resilient economic environment. In the 16  years NAFTA has been in effect, foreign investment has almost doubled, from $5–6 billion to $10–12 billion a year. In 2001, inflation in Mexico fell to a 30-year low, and the flow of foreign capital into the Mexican stock market rose more than 6%, helping make it the seventh best performing stock market on the planet. In 2002, Standard and Poor’s and Fitch and Moody’s upgraded Mexico’s sovereign debt to investment grade, and foreign direct investment rose almost 11% over 2001 levels, totaling more than $30 billion in June of that year. And in 2003, JP Morgan added Mexico bonds to its Government Bond Index, making them attractive to institutional investors.

Also in February 2003, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled “Mexico Real Estate Is a Haven for U.S. Institutional Investors.” Here’s an excerpt: “War anxieties abroad, sluggish returns at home, and Mexico’s recent recognition as investment-grade by all three major U.S. credit-rating agencies are behind the surge of U.S. institutional cash seeking a haven in Mexican real estate. According to industry analysts in both countries, more than $1 billion has washed into Mexico from U.S. institutional investors over the past eight months, and a lot more is on the way.”

Mexico’s Strong Peso

Mexico’s peso is strong and has remained so against the dollar over the last few years. The peso has been buoyed in part by the significant foreign investment in Mexico and also by recent capital flight from Argentina. A strong local currency bodes well if you’re considering a direct investment in Mexico. You won’t have to contend with the wild swings in property pricing that you might find elsewhere.

Infrastructure Improvements Further Facilitate Mexican Investment, Trade, and Tourism

The last two presidents have seemed committed to allocating funds for new and expanded roads, ports, and telecommunication infrastructure. This goes hand in hand with increased privatization, which will allow concessions in the national airport network and the telecommunications sector. The idea is that all of those improvements will further encourage and facilitate commerce.

Why You Should Consider Investing in Mexico Real Estate

Although the Mexican government does not offer any direct incentives to promote investment in Mexico, there are many benefits to purchasing real estate in Mexico. The property taxes in Mexico are miniscule compared with the U.S. and Canada, usually costing just a few hundred dollars per year. It is also very easy to be exempted from paying the capital gains tax—you just have to prove that you resided in the property for at least six months. The appreciation in many areas, especially on the coasts, can be very high, with 50% or more per annum being a realistic number. And above all, buying Mexican real estate is safe and easy, with more and more financing sources available to U.S. and Canadian residents through both U.S. and Mexican banks.

The Best Places in Mexico to Invest in Real Estate

Wherever you go in Mexico, the friendly people will charm you, the natural beauty will seduce you, and the remarkably affordable cost of living will entice you to stay. As is true in any country, real estate in some areas is more affordable than in others. And different places, of course, appeal to different people. If you want extensive infrastructure, ease of access, an established expatriate community…you can have all that. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a little slice of deserted Mexican beach away from it all, you can find that, too…and all of it at surprisingly reasonable prices in the Sonora's Coasts (you can start here).


 BUY Properties in Mexico ("Fideicomiso")

Foreigners purchasing real estate in the “restricted zone” 100 kilometers, (62 miles) of any Mexican border and 50 kilometers, (31 miles) of any Mexican coastline do so by means of a ‘fideicomiso’ or real estate trust with a Mexican Bank, as the Mexican Constitution prohibits direct ownership and by Mexican law, all real estate transactions must be processed by any one of many government approved Public Notaries.

The bank, as the trustee, has a fiduciary obligation to follow the instructions given by the buyer or beneficiary of the trust. At the time the trust is formed, the buyer can and should designate and provide the bank with specified information and personal instructions regarding any sub-beneficiaries he/she wants to include in the trust document (fideicomiso), to safeguard the investment in the event of sudden death or mental incapacity of the beneficiary(fideicomisario) within the duration of the trust.

However, although the bank holds title to the property and is the registered owner, the buyer as beneficiary (fideicomisario), retains all the rights of ownership, including the use, enjoyment, lease or sale of the trusted property, without limitation.

‘Fideicomisos’ or trust agreements are currently issued for a period of 50 years which can be renewed a minimum of six months before they expire. The bank charges for the government permit, its registration with the proper authorities, an initial fee for establishing the trust and a yearly fee to maintain it. It extends the right to the beneficiary (fideicomisario) to make changes or modifications throughout the duration of the trust; however, additional charges do apply and are generally stated in the trust document (fideicomiso).

Once the bank has received all the necessary documentation from buyer, seller and the permit from Foreign Relations, it is presented to the Public Notary. In the Notary’s office, the final document is compiled and signed by the buyer, seller and later by the bank’s legal representative. Notary fees include various payments to government departments for transfer of ownership, registration, as well as office and service fees which are based upon the sale price. Generally, the buyer is responsible to pay all closing costs, which include both the bank and Notary fees and the seller is responsible for payment of any Capital Gains, (Impuesto Sobre la Renta).

Various factures can influence the choice of both the particular bank (trustee or fiduciario) that will execute the trust agreement with the seller (trustor or fideicomitente), purchasing the property on behalf of the foreigner, as well as the Public Notary. Your real estate agent will provide you with assistance and information to simplify the selection process, advise you regarding any additional information or documentation required for the formation of the ‘fideicomiso’ and guide you through the various steps and stages to its completion.
