Everything you need to know about buying and selling real estate in Mexico, Puerto Vallarta, and the Banderas Bay region

Selling Property in Mexico

What Documents do you Need?

It is hard to know what you need in the way of documents when you decide to sell. Your paperwork trail needs to satisfy the notary. He has to have everything he needs to establish a clear picture of you as the owner. And if you are a foreigner buying in a trust, the trustee will be very particular about all documents.

If you are interested in buying a beachfront home or land in Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit or anywhere else in the Banderas Bay region, here’s what you need to know about the Restricted Zone and purchasing Mexican real estate:
POINT ONE: Use an attorney. Agents are not educated or experienced enough to take the place of an attorney for you. I recommend one who is bilingual and bi-cultural.
