Despite the economic crises, which affected Mexico in 2008 and 2009, Coldwell Banker Riveras team continued performing brilliantly and retained the top position in the entire Mexico for 8 years (since its very beginnings).
Leticia Diaz Rivera, the Coldwell Banker Riveras broker, explains “With 35 years of experience I could say we’ve seen it all. After the years of double digit % rise of home values in Baja California Sur (BCS), 2009 was the first year ever that brought down the prices of BCS real estate, with reductions ranging between 10 to 40%. As with any investment, the value of your property or housing investment is varying as well, largely depending on the alternatives driven by combinations of local/regional capital markets, and added value (such as location, amenities, proximity to school, hospitals, downtown, beaches i.e.). In case of BCS real estate, we have seen a historic trend over the past 35 years, which assures any owner that their investment will increase in value in the mid and long term. There is no other location in the world that could offer you such an amazing combination of location, weather, nature and stable economic conditions of the country. Even in what has been a very challenging market in the past 12-24 months Coldwell Banker Riveras has been the best performing brokerage in each of its markets helping sellers maximize their value and buyers find the best insider deals in BCS. The value you will probably not find again in Baja Sur in the future.”
Coldwell Banker Riveras real estate portfolio represents around 400 properties all around Baja California Sur (new and resale homes, homesites, developer properties, commercial properties, investment properties, beachfront estates, ranches, hacienda style estates and more). In 2012 over 87% of the sales involved their own listed inventory. Average Days on Market (DoM) for a homesite in 2011 was 318 days and average DoM for a residential property was 147 days.
Why investing in Mexico is a safe, attractive and a reasonable decision?
- Proximity to the United States and Canada; Los Cabos and La Paz airports are a direct flight away from many major towns.
- Lower costs of living.
- The location and weather; Baja California Sur has on average 350 sunny days per year, and is surrounded by Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean, offering an array of on- and off-the water activities, world class sports fishing and golfing.
- The country’s macroeconomic position is strong amid sound policies.*
- While the economy remains highly linked to the U.S., it is better prepared to face an external shock from the developed world compared to the past.*
