Can Foreigners Buy Real Estate In Mexico?
Yes, foreigners can buy property in Mexico. As a foreigner, you can hold a direct deed to your property as long as it´s outside the restricted zones—50 kilometers (about 31 miles) from shorelines and 100 kilometers (about 62 miles) from international borders and you can buy with the same rights and responsibilities as any Mexican national.
How Safe Is It To Live In Baja?
Yes, Baja California Sur is the safest state in all of México and most of our residents and visitors feel safer here than they do in their own hometowns. Our crime rates are close to non. We always recommend staying within the residential and resort areas and if you must leave your comfort zone, then make friends with the locals and have them take you where you must go and you will feel even safer.
Can I Leave My Property To My Kids?
Yes, your children can continue enjoying your Mexican property once you are gone, so be sure to add it to your will. As in any country, there is paperwork to be fulfilled to credit new ownership, but nothing that an experienced attorney can´t help them do.
