Buying a Home at Lake Chapala Mexico: Do you Have the Tools You Need? Smarter than You Average Bird
Buying a home in Mexico, as you might expect is a bit different than in the USA or Canada.
Yes, you can own your home here by a direct deed in your name just like in the USA or Canada.
Yes, You can get title Insurance (although most folks do not) like in the USA or Canada.
Yes, the offer and acceptance docs can be in English.
Yes, You can get Full coverage Insurance (most owners do not however)
But, since there is no formal licensing requirement in Mexico anybody and his brother in law can sell real estate.
That’s why it’s so important to use a GIL (Lake Chapala Real Estate Group) or in Spanish “Grupo Inmobilario del Lago” professional Realtor.
These come in two varieties. Those Realtors who list and sell homes and those who have chosen to forgo a large part of the commission possible and focus only on representing buyers. Eliminating built in ‘conflicts of interest’.
There are just 5 of us in the entire Lake Chapala GIL network.
Four (4) of the Five of us have come together to form what we call “The Dream Team” and we’ve associated ourselves with what we feel is the best Brokerage firm in business here… Lake Chapala Real Estate.
Now, watch these short videos (just 3 min. 8 seconds total time) and see if you can make the connections with the main points in the videos and what a professional Buyer’s Only Realtor can do for you.
I’ll explain the connection just after the videos, but for now enjoy the videos I call. “Smarter than Your Average Birds”.
Well, I think you see the connection I’m making here. A professional Buyer’s Only Realtor is smarter than Your average bird (not to imply that the other Realtors are bird brained at all. They too are smarter than your average bird,,, but they use their skills, talents and abilities in the seller’s behalf not in your behalf.
So let one of our Dream Team of Exclusive Buyer’s Only Realtors help you by making a new tool if necessary to get the prize as in the second video …
or to help you crack the tough nuts while keeping you cautious and safe like the crow in the first video by only venturing into the busy road while the light gave protection for the crosswalk.
