Several properties have sold this past month:  Villa Las Glorias – the big 5 bedroom home on the ocean, Twin Apartments on 30 Av., Casa Pijiji in Flamingos, a Las Ventanas Condominium, and our Casa Dos.  Many people are getting great deals by offering in pesos. Our Mexican peso right now is almost consistently at 14 to $1 to the USD.  To illustrate, consider a property priced at $2,000,000 PESOS. Not so long ago, when the Peso was 10 to 1, that house would cost you $200,000 US Dollars. But NOW, at 14 pesos to the US Dollar, that same house only costs $142,857 US Dollars!  YOU DO THE MATH !  DON’T MISS OUT ON SOME OF THE BEST DEALS EVER! 

We’ve also seen a lot of Americans and Canadians moving down to enjoy a lower cost of living and a higher quality of life in a beautiful, warm climate.  INTERNATIONAL LIVING and MEXICO INSIDER offers some good tips.  Email them today at:  International Living [customerservice@internationalliving.com] and editor@mexicoinsider.com.
