With some simple steps, finding the best real estate in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit is easy. Here are some strategies you might want to employ to help you in your quest for a vacation home that is tailored to your needs.

Choose the right time to buy

The end of high season is a great time for finding the best real estate in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit as this is the time when most of the expats and snowbirds have gone home for the summer. You will find that real estate agents have more time for you and are more likely to focus on finding you exactly what you want. Furthermore, properties are more likely to be vacant during this time, so you will find scheduling multiple visits to see real estate in one day much easier. You will also get to see the property in the rainy season, which will highlight any leaks or mold problems, as well as issues you might find with regards to airflow.

Get a good real estate agent

It is the job of a good real estate agent to manage expectations and make sure people know exactly what to expect when looking for investment properties in paradise. You also need an agent who can be honest with you about costs and your chances of finding what you want within your budget. Alongside a good real estate agent, you will also want to have a reliable real estate attorney and notary, both of whom a reputable real estate agent can recommend.

Buy Property You Can Afford

Make sure you have the capital to invest in real estate in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit. Most properties in Mexico are paid in full rather than using a mortgage, although Mexico’s mortgage lending business is growing steadily. In addition, mortgage interest rates in Mexico are very high. Some high-end properties, like Villa La Estancia Real Estate, offer developer financing, which is a great option. Nevertheless, the best rule of thumb is to buy real estate in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit that you can afford.

Consider YOUR expectations

How many times have you been told: “Don’t buy near the beach because properties are more expensive” or “Find real estate out of town, so it’s cheaper!” While you will find real estate in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit to be much cheaper in less desirable locations, you might want to reconsider why you want to move to Banderas Bay. If your goal is to live cheaply, then by all means, choose a cheaper neighborhood; however, if your goal is to experience the wonders of this breathtaking location, then choose real estate that matches your expectations. You might also discover that properties by the sea are not out of your reach.

Be realistic

Take into consideration how often you will realistically be able to use your property; how many times a year will you visit. If you are planning to live in your home full time or for long periods, you will need a different kind of property than if you were buying real estate in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit as an investment to rent.
