Finding and working with a reliable local real estate agent can pay long-term dividends when it comes to renting, buying, and selling property in Queretaro, Mexico.
When you’re scouting for a home here, you’ll need to do plenty of research. The Internet is the ideal starting place, and the aid of a detailed local map (Google Maps now covers Mexico very well indeed) will also help you to get a visual impression of the terrain, the landscape, and the transport connections which lead to and from your short-list of locations.
Once you choose a location to settle in, getting to know the area intimately is a critical aspect of your planning work. If you have years to plan, then perhaps a few visits—including some extended stays locally—will help. We have always recommended to our readers that renting for a time in areas you don’t know already is more prudent than jumping-in with a property purchase right away. Rents in Mexico are affordable and renting enables you to get a feel for the area before you make a substantial property purchase—and take on board all the commitments which accompany it.
When you finally decide to move to a particular area in Mexico, consider spending some time looking for a good, well-established, local realty agent in the area.
Good local realty agents will have lived in the area for some years, know the market, the terrain, the neighborhoods, the local highlights—and are prepared to be upfront with you about any local issues, helping you to make informed choices. They can also help you to find the rental home you need for that extended stay in the area.
Well established realty agents might also connect you to houses not generally advertised for sale, or homes which have only recently come to market but which have not been well publicized. They’ll also be able to rent your house when you’re not there (ideal for part-time residents), help you to make the move to Mexico with connections to reliable local service providers, and later on they can help you to sell your home. A good working relationship with a professional and firmly established local realty agent can last for years and pay long-term dividends.
