What do you prefer in Yucatan Real Estate?

Posted in Mexico on March 22nd, 2012 by admin – 2 Comments

Many buyers classic homes while few want to relish the homes near the beach.

While deciding what property to buy in Yucatan, one of the most popular choices is Yucatan’s colonial homes which are old but retain a charm. These old homes can be found in the city of Merida. There are a large number of Merida homes which are always favorite with the expatriates from USA and Canada. These homes are quite well preserved. What makes living in Merida a delight is that this city has museums, art galleries, parks, cafes, restaurants, shops and the places of interest are within a walking distance.

The city’s architecture is heavily influenced by the colonial times hence the city has this old world charm which cannot be found in other cities of Mexico. For those to enjoy culture and art this is the place to be in Yucatan. This is the reason why Yucatan has a large population of expats from USA, Canada and Europe who have made Merida their home. This is the place to retire and relax if you like places like Merida.

In contrast, beachfront homes in Yucatan are situated in the sleepy port towns. What you get here are old classic homes in a different setting i.e. beachfront. While the settings are scenic one may miss out on the vibrancy of Merida. The small towns are very peaceful and perfect for unwinding.

In the end what you choose for Yucatan Real Estate depends on your budget and preferences.

What percent down payment do I need to buy a vacation home in Mexico?

My wide(wife) and I want to buy a condo in Mexico, and we were wondernig how much we´ll need as a down payment. This information seems pretty hard to find online, and our normal mortgage broker couldn´t answer it. Also, does anyone have a suggested mortgage broker that finances Mexican properties?

We asked our real estate Mexico Real Estate Expert Agent. The answer was in Mexico mortgage loans are available with 25% down, interest rates start at 7.99%, and payment terms are over 20-30 years but keep in mind that loans are secured on the property in Mexico being purchased, not on US property.

5 Tips for being a successful Landlord

Posted in USA on April 12th, 2013 by admin – Comments Off

For many people Orlando real estate is once again considered to be a potentially good investment. Median home values have already bottomed out and have been on the rise for well over a year now. However, there is still a long way to go before we see a normal housing market. Savvy investors sensing this opportunity are jumping into the rental market head first buying up investment properties left and right with the intention to rent them out.

 5 Tips for being a successful Landlord

Even new-bee investors are trying to get in on the Orlando rental market hoping to create a steady stream of monthly income. If you’re a new investor interested in buying houses to rent out, then there are some very important things that you should consider before you commit yourself to being a Landlord.

1- Buy at the right price- In order to do this, you should enlist the help of an experienced Orlando realtor. Have your agent research the recent comparables in the area to get a feel for pricing. In order to find steep discounts you should consider looking at some Orlando short sale properties. It’s important to know however, that by buying a short sale property you will most likely get a good deal but the process can sometimes take several months because the lender has to approve your offer before you can close. It’s also ok to purchase a property at fair market value as long as you’re thinking long term and the numbers work.

It’s important to know what your monthly overhead on a property is so that you can compare it to how much you can rent it out for and know exactly how much you will be making on that property.

2-Don’t think about Flipping it- If you want to buy a house with the intention of  renting it out, then you should follow through on that. Buying a house with the intention of flipping it is a whole different ball game with a different set of rules. Don’t change your mind midstream from landlord to house flipper thinking you’re going to make a huge profit because unless you got a fantastic deal on it, then you will probably be disappointed about what you can resell it for. After you consider closing costs, real estate commission, etc. you might even lose money.

3-Take advantage of extremely low mortgage rates- Even if you’re in the position to pay cash for an investment property, you should really consider taking advantage of some of the best mortgage rates in history. It’s really a great opportunity for people that can qualify to lock down a 15 or 30 year fixed mortgage. A good rule of thumb is- as long as the rental income exceeds the mortgage payment [with escrows] by a couple hundred dollars, you will be in good shape.

4- Think about hiring a property management company- Becoming a landlord can be very lucrative for some people if they are up to the task. Having plenty of experience as a landlord myself, I can tell you that it’s not for everyone. Landlords not only have to deal with maintaining the property, but they also have to be available to their tenants at a moment’s notice in case of an emergency situation. This can turn into a big headache, especially with a demanding tenant. That’s why you should look into hiring a property management company from the get -go. You should add this cost to your monthly overhead for the property so that you know if the numbers still make sense.

5-Get familiar with your county’s eviction laws- By being a landlord for any amount of time it’s inevitable that you will have to evict someone at some point. Even if you’ve done your due diligence on a potential tenant like running a background check, credit report, etc., eventually you will have a situation where a tenant stops paying the rent. Although an eviction is something that you can do yourself at the courthouse, I would strongly suggest that you hire an attorney or eviction company to handle this for you. There’s quite a bit of paperwork involved and if something gets filed incorrectly, you may have to start all over again. Remember, every day that the tenant stays in there without paying, translates to money flying out of your pocket.

4 Essentials For Traditional Mexican Home Decors

Posted in Mexico on April 18th, 2013 by admin – Comments Off

If you see a home where in you find a fiesta of bright colors and a touch of a lot of energy, you might be seeing a Mexican style traditional home!

Loved for its bold and bright decorations, the Mexican traditional homes made use of brick and wood as building materials and usually had pillars and columns for interior decorations. They were, to a much extent, inspired by Spanish, Mediterranean or Moorish style architecture. Decorative lawns in front, wood beamed ceilings (to keep the heat out), intricately made doors and large windows are a few of the known characteristics of Mexican traditional homes.

However, there is so much to Mexican architecture – columns having pediment and tops with artistic leaf or vine designs – I have brought five essential features of these homes to you. In any case you may want to design a home that has stucco-style exteriors and rustic-engraved, warm interiors you can doubtlessly choose the Mexican interior designs.

Absolute carnival of bright colors:

Mexican decors are loved for exuberantly colorful appearance where the two opposite color palettes are used. With a blend of so many opposite colors – vibrant primary colors like deep reds, yellows, greens, pinks, or blues and earth tones such as tans, browns or dull reds – the homes look warm yet cheerful. Amongst the dusky and natural but deep, rich colors white is used as an accentuating color. The walls, in fact, are painted to suede effect look.

Elegantly manicured gardens:

Mexican homes do also have gracefully designed courtyard gardens that replicate the glamour of thriving forests and barren terrain. Typified by dense plants and trees, gorgeous water features such as fountains and streams, and Talavera styled plant pots they are usually meant for outdoor dining. You may find cooking stoves and dazzling lighting to encourage people to dine together under the sky. The gardens include succulents, cacti, herbs, vegetables, and ornamental meadow as well as stamped metal lamps. A little spice is added to the entire place by putting dried pepper wreaths. The furniture in the gardens (you could find enough sitting area in the garden) again is painted in lively colors such as blue or orange. A fireplace is built for making family and guests comfortable while they talk, eat and enjoy.

Romantically warm tiled floors:

Floors in the Mexican homes are usually made of clay, ceramic or limestone tiles and bricks! The naturally hard floors are designed using bright color (generally hues of reds, oranges and yellows) tiles put to create attractive patterns across widespread floors in living areas and other parts of the home including stairs, skirting boards, fireplace or borders of windows! The tiles that are made from clay or ceramic and are fired at high temperatures do not appear charred and provide a rustic charm to the interiors.

For the carpets are not that essential in such homes, they may prefer using woven rugs of rich colors and having geometric patterns.

Rustic pine wooden furniture:

Ideally manufactured from kiln-dried hickory, oak, alder or solid pine wood the Mexican furniture is characterized by heavy duty panels, metallic details, a lot of drawers and brackets, rustic finishes and dark iron hinges and knobs! Preferably including country-style pieces such as chairs, tables, beds, armoires, dressers, night stands, and chests the Mexican furniture provides an antique ambience to the entire décor. Uniquely designed and hand crafted items indeed provide an area a sumptuous feel.

Apart all these the various accessories such as wrought-iron or wooden lighting; dazzling woven blankets, cushions and baskets; wall hangings exhibiting Mexican weaving capabilities; pottery items; conventional masks, and Hojalata Mexicana tin work items are an integral part of Mexican home decors.

Each of the Italian regions has a distinct and unique menu to offer with mouthwatering meals that will leave you craving for more.

• Piedmont: Located at the northwest Italy, the menu is dominated with the local organic ingredients with a lot of truffles and mushrooms which are in plenty. It is also the home of Barolo, the Italia most acclaimed wine.

• Veneto: With a good location besides the Adriatic Sea at the north, this is the favorite spot for seafood lovers. Your search for the famous soft, bubbly prosecco stops here.

• Emilia-Romagna: Some of the locale dish that you will find in the streets of towns such as Bologna and Parma include prosciutto, fresh tagliatelle and lasagna. Don’t forget you will be in the hometown of Parmagiano and forgetting to try some will be a regrettable mistake.

• Umbria: It is simply described as the green heart. This is a food heaven. Famous for its chocolates and Orvieto, there are many great restaurants such as Trattoria dell’Orso and Norcia which is great in sausage. Other foods that are native here include ricotta gnocchi and specially baked spinach with cheese served with tomato sauce.

• Sicily: Your experience with the Italian menu cannot be complete before you experience the dish that Sicily has to offer. This Island locally described as the “Sun and Sea” is a melting port for cultural diversity. Greeks, Vikings, Spanish, Muslims and locals all mingle here. This is reflected in the menus around the town. You must try Arancini and cannoli dishes in Sicily. Drinks such as limoncello cannot afford to miss in your menu particularly after dinner. The list is not complete without other regions such as Puglia, Campania, Lazio, Tuscany and Lombardy which also come with equally wonderful menus.

The Italian tour has more to offer than what is mentioned in this article. You cannot claim to have toured the world if you have +not visited Italy to discover its hidden treasure.

Assuage Your Financial Worries with Reliable Debt Settlement Options

Posted in Mexico on December 23rd, 2013 by admin – Comments Off

In a society where the adage ‘buy now, pay later’ is the norm, it comes as no surprise, to find people often battling the nightmares of debt settlement. The use of credit cards has aggravated the scenario, where people are using the convenience of the cards to entrap them into the mires of debt. The unstable economic condition, prevailing in today’s world has made it apparent that consumer debt has become a crisis which needs to be solved at the earliest. Lately, the option of hiring the services of a debt settlement companies is considered, as the ideal solution, to manage consumer’s finances.

Understanding Debt Settlement

Before you can make a wise choice about hiring the services of an effective company, you should understand the terms related to your situation. The idea is to provide an alternative to bankruptcy. Debt settlement is an approach to debt reduction, where the debtor is unable to afford the debt management plan payment. Therefore, he makes an agreement with the creditor on a reduced balance which can be regarded as a full payment. However, to reach a reasonable conclusion, you will need to negotiate successfully with the creditor on the reduced balance amount.

Options for Negotiation

To do this, you can either choose to negotiate directly or hire the services of an excellent debt settlement firm. Before you can make a decision, it is worthwhile to understand the basic features of each option. The main advantage of holding direct negotiation with your creditor is that it will cost you nothing. As someone with mounting debts, this might be a productive choice. Another factor is the control you will have over the process of negotiations. Handing over the process to a third party might lead you to lose control over the negotiations.

Direct Negotiation vs. Hiring Professionals

However, there are some real disadvantages to direct negotiation. For one, the success of the negotiation depends largely on your personality. It is expected that negotiation with your creditor for a reduced debt settlement plan is not going to be a piece of cake. It will need you to invest a sufficient amount of hard work, and not to mention, a great deal of persuasion and tenacity.On the other hand, having the support and skill of a professional negotiator to argue your case for you could be advantageous for you, on a lot of level. A skilled, experienced and tenacious negotiator can assure you with the desired outcome. All kinds of details like making phone calls, making connections, writing letters and dealing with representatives, will be handled by the firm with excellent efficiency.

Choosing a Reliable Company

To ensure that you have chosen a reliable credit settlement company, you need to do sufficient research. Firstly, you need to discuss with the companies about the range of services they offer to help you resolve your debt. The cost you will incur is a major factor in your consideration of enlisting the services of a debt settlement company. Therefore, you should get acquainted with the payment options of the company. It is important to remain updated about the recent stages of your negotiations. So, you should choose a company that can provide you the ease with which you can access all relevant data regarding your situation. Finally, the affiliation of the company with the United States Organizations for Bankruptcy Alternative or The Association of Settlement Companies can help you alleviate some of your worries about the reliability of the agency.

Lawsuit Loans offer Secured Legal Financing Against A Legal Case

Posted in Mexico on January 15th, 2014 by admin – Comments Off

If, in any point of time in life, you have been a plaintiff or associated with a plaintiff you may have come across the term lawsuit loan. A lawsuit loan helps plaintiffs to get an access to funds before the case is decided. They get access to funds before a settlement. The plaintiff can use the funds for medical bills, car payments and legal bills. The most important aspect of these loans is that they are non-recourse loans. The lawsuit is not required to be paid back if the defendant wins the case. On the contrary if the plaintiff wins the case the loan amount needs to be paid back.

Important cash advance

As the end results of a legal case are unknown, a lawsuit loan helps you handle situations which plaintiffs may face. While the case is being solved no monthly payments need to be paid. With a pre settlement advance, it is a great way to guarantee financial recovery. During the case, most plaintiffs cannot work and may face steep medical bills. These loans prove very beneficial to the plaintiffs in such situations. The approval process of lawsuit loans is very simple. The credit history and income status of the plaintiff is not taken into account.

Steps to keep in mind

Till your legal settlement is awarded these loans help you to pay the bills. Before you take a lawsuit loan you need to follow the following steps:

  • It is important to discuss the lawsuit loan with the attorney.
  • It is essential that you locate a good lender.
  • You can opt for an online lender who offers a lawsuit loan.
  • Before you sign a contract review the practices of the lender.
  • The complete application process of the loan can be completed over the net.
  • Give the lender sufficient time to review your case.

A lawsuit broker

You can hire a lawsuit broker who is aware of the cash advances which various firms will make. If you are turned down for some reason, the brokers can forward your application to another pre-settlement funding firm. The broker looks into your profit and aims at helping you during the entire process. To consult a broker is one of the best decisions which you can take before you apply for a lawsuit loan. If you need cash to pay for your children’s education or to meet medical expenses a lawsuit cash advance can be the best solution to your financial needs. If you have a strong case chances are higher that you will great a larger settlement.

Obtain a pre-settlement fund

It has been seen that pre settlement funds can relieve a large amount of stress. To save your home from being foreclosed or to meet other pressing needs, these loans prove very beneficial. Pre settlement companies and lenders offer lawsuit loans to plaintiffs who have a strong case and enjoy higher chances of winning the case. A lawsuit funding helps you to fight for a longer case till you receive a fair offer. If you have met with an accident, you will have to file a personal injury case. Paying expenses for medical bills and related costs becomes easier with a lawsuit loan.

As a lawsuit loan is a non-recourse loan you do not need to pay if you lose the case. At times, you may be forced to close a case early because of financial constraints. With a lawsuit loan, it becomes easy for both you and the attorney to fight for a fairer deal. Plaintiffs no longer have to worry about cash till their case is settled. At times, lawsuit loans are offered on the basis of the future proceedings of the case. It is a secured legal financing which helps you to pay the bills and not settle for less.

Posted in Mexico on March 21st, 2012 by admin – 1 Comment

Many of our readers are from Phoenix and visit Rocky Point, Mexico. I am posing this question to them.

In Yahoo! i saw this question posted. I believe our blog readers can answer the question very well.

Orlando vs Phoenix to live?

I have job offers from both places :) and I would like an opinion on the cities and how they are like to live in. I’ve travelled to Orlando and Phoenix only once and did not get to see them very well. Which city provides more to do during a weekday and a weekend? What is there to do in both places? What is the weather like (I know its hot but the living conditions in both). And any other thing to add in. Thanks!

Answer was as follows

Phoenix metro area-
~ Has everything any other urban center has- a nice zoo, big parks with hiking and fishing amenities and rec centers, festival throughout the year, sufficient scheduling of symphony and performances off Broadway.

~ Pro Baseball, Basketball, Football and Hockey; Two Pac-10 schools/teams.

Comparing Window Replacement Contractors

Posted in Home Improvement on April 4th, 2011 by admin – Comments Off

When considering window replacement contract services, it is best to check the age of the business. If the business has been around over a long period of time, it signifies that they have been providing customer satisfaction for a long time. It is an added advantage if the business has been operating from the same locality for a long time. But there are services that are relatively newer but their team of employees is extremely well trained and efficient. Therefore, one must also consider the skill and experience of the professionals.

However, one must opt for the first replacement window contractor that fits the bill. One must visit at least three such service providers, get quotes from them, then compare these quotes before deciding which service provider works out best, given one’s budget and needs. It is very important to prescreen the service providers before deciding to go with one. It is quite a good idea to get in touch with the dealers the service providers deal with. This can help in ensuring that the new window providers buy the best stocks available in the market, from reputable manufacturing companies. If the service provider is located in the same neighbourhood as the house, a lot of money is saved because there isn’t any transport costs incurred and that also makes it easier for the consumer to visit the service provider’s office anytime there is a need to enquire. One never actually knows when one has to visit the offices personally and clarify problems. A lot of service providers actually provide services at affordable rates if they fail to finish the task on time. So, one must always enquire of the turn around time.

It also helps to consult neighbours before employing replacement window services because that way one can get a first hand review of the company’s faults or plus points. Once one has shortlisted such businesses, one must send them a few questions and see how fast they respond. It is best to go for the service that is prompt.

Where To Get Free Casement Windows

Posted in Real Estate on May 30th, 2011 by admin – Comments Off

How would you like to get free exterior windows for your home? If you want free casement windows for your home then the first thing you need to do is figure out where you can get them. Something you will quickly figure out is that most free casement windows will have something wrong with them, they may be dirty, stained, broken, missing glass, or who knows what they will have wrong with them. The reason it is important that you know this is so you are not out there looking for brand new windows that you can get for free.

Job sites – The first place that you should look for free casement windows is at different jobs sites where construction crews are redoing residential houses. The reason why you should look at places like this is because construction crews do not save windows that they take out of houses, they just throw them away. The reason why you can often times get these for free is because you go into the job site and tell the project manager that you will take the windows off his hands so he doesn’t have to pay to have them tossed in the garbage. This is often times a sigh of relief when people come onto the different job sites to reuse some of the material the crews are pulling off.

Glass shops – Another great place to get free casement windows is at glass shops and the reason why they sometimes have free windows to give away is because often times the managers will get glass that is not exactly what they ordered. When a glass company gets a piece of glass that is not standard then there is nothing they can do with it except throw it away and that is where you come in. Just go to the nearest glass shop and see what they have to offer you.
