BUY YOUR PROPERTY NOW AND SURPRISE YOUR SWEETHEART WITH A WONDERFUL COZUMEL PROPERTY !!!
Cozumel had 4 festive days of Carnival parades this year.
On January 31st we held a very successful open house at Casa Lala. We plan on holding open houses each Thursday from 10 to noon, so if you are in town, please plan on joining us. February 07 we will have open houses at Casa Hibiscus and Casa Mexicana both located very close together one block from the ocean in Corpus Christi neighborhood. Looking forward to seeing you there. Tell your friends about it! A great way to get to see some of the beautiful homes of Cozumel.
We also held an open house in Nah Ha 502 to promote the fractional ownership. The owner has all of the documents prepared to pass a percentage of the title. The condo is beautifully furnished and is renting well at $300 USD per night at least 2 weeks per month. HOA (Home Owners Association) dues are $700 per month, but will be proportionate to your percent of interest in the condo. With the condo renting so well, it looks like HOA dues will be offset by rentals. The owner is selling either 4 one week interests for $60,000 USD or 3 month (12 week stays) quarter interests for $171,000. A GREAT WAY TO OWN AN AFFORDABLE VACATION RENTAL DIRECTLY ON THE OCEAN !!!
A review of recent international articles on:
Real Estate Still Booming in Cozumel
Chicago – January 15, 2008:
With a flip of the calendar, a new year in travel begins. And while January brings wintry weather to much of the country, it also gets travelers thinking about the best destinations to escape the chill. This month, the Insiders at Orbitz have looked to points south, west, and overseas to uncover the fastest growing winter beach destinations and some off-beat Insiders picks in its January 2008 Orbitz Insider Index…
…Outside the U.S., Cozumel, Mexico continues to boom and checked in as the No. 1 fastest growing International beach destination. In fact, Mexico topped the Caribbean with 7 of the top 10, including the top 3: Cozumel, Riviera Maya (No. 2), and Playa del Carmen (No. 3). Jamaica´s Negril Beach, Brazil´s Rio De Janeiro and the Island of Aruba split up the popular Mexican Beaches, holding the No 4, 5, and 6 spots respectively.¨
The Los Angeles Times – January 28, 2008: Reported by Evelyn Iritani
“Real Estate experts in Mexico worry that the giant sound they hear is the softening U.S. housing market sucking out money that Americans have poured into vacation homes south of the border.
But… the cooling U.S. housing market hasn´t stemmed the influx of foreign dollars into Mexico´s booming coastal resort areas, government and real estate officials said.
¨We have some concerns about the slowing U.S. housing market, but there are many other things working for us, ¨said John McCarthy, the tourism agency´s director general, who was in Beverly Hills, CA, last week to speak to U.S. investors. ¨Most of our buyers are baby boomers who have paid off in good part their initial mortgage and are coming into inheritance money¨
Janette and Harvey Craig, who paid 60,000.00 USD four years ago for a piece of beach front property in Litibu, a small beachfront community about 30 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. The Craig´s expect the parcel, worth about 300,000.00 USD today, to become more valuable in three years, when a nearby resort, which will include hotels and a golf course designed by Greg Norman, is completed. “It´s just going to push prices higher and higher,” said Janette.
In the past, foreigners have been wary of investing in Mexico because of legal problems, corruption and red tape. But changes in Mexican laws have made it easier for foreigners to own properties through bank trusts. Major U.S. companies have begun offering mortgages and title insurance.
Mexico is also drawing a lot of attention from Europe. Last year, Spanish companies were the top investors in the tourist industry, pumping $416 million into resort properties. U.S. investors followed with $321 million, according to the tourism agency.
Tourism is the third largest generator of foreign exchange in Mexico, after oil and remittance from Mexicans living abroad.”
In spite of the booming economy, Cozumel still maintains its quaint charm that brings people back time and again.
