Mexico Condos – Cabo San Lucas is a fatastic vacation destination and great buying opportunity for those seeking vacations condos, second homes, or new primary residences. Many Americas find cabo so appealing that they move there permanently. The community is very friendly, almost everyone speaks English and it has all the amenities and comforts of most American cities.
Cabo attracts condo buyers and investors from California, Texas, Arizona, New York, and many other US states. For as long as Cabo has been a popular destination, it is amazing to see how much development is still underway and planned for the next ten years. One would think that it would be built out by now – NOT by a long shop.
I was in Cabo earlier this week meeting with many condo developers and other companies with major new home commuinties such as Quivera. Many of these new condo and home developments include estate homes, condos, villes, and townhomes. All have price ranges all over the board. Quivera is currently the largest most high end resort development under way in Cabo San Lucas. Homes will range in price from $5 million to over $11 million. Mexico condos have been a great investment opportunity for Americas for many years. many people who spend extended time in cabo own fractional time shares of condos under full ownership.
If you enjoy Cabo and envision spending more time there, buying a condo or home may be the right investment for you!

New Condos Online, in affiliation with Mexico Alive come together in featuring a hot new condo resort whose name is synonymous with the very successful and highly regarded Marival resort in Puerto Vallerta — Marival Condo Resort is a hot new destination in a very well known area that blends old Mexican flavor with modern living, including the amenities of a four star resort! Mexico Alive is running a special promotion for Marival and several other select condo sites that highlight the best of Mexican condo living — Mexico Alive sponsors a “Discovery Weekend” in which interested home buyers travel down to Mexico and learn about the different real estate opportunities and take in the local culture and nightlife. This event represents an awesome time to see how much Mexico has changed in recent years — Condo resorts are typically luxurious properties that include amenities from full-service spas to infinity pools to fine restaurants and concierge services. To the average nightly guest, they appear to be the usual upscale hotel. However, the key difference is each of the hotel suites is individually owned.
While the Discovery Weekend does offer condo resort style living, there are also other new for sale attached housing that is presented as well, including condos, beach loft style homes and further resort style living. These Discovery Weekends are typically filled with some travel along the local beach access roads and highways in Mexico, the trip ends up being more of a getaway than a presentation — A perfect time and opportunity for the investor and individual looking to kick back and have some fun. Look out for the next featured property that will be displayed soon — 3.14 condos!

We are working on something very special over here at New Condos Online; The Mexico condo market has seen an increase in activity in the past few years while the national condo market in the U.S has seen its fair share of volatility. New Condos Online has been in extensive talks with the marketing Reps at Mexico Alive and have come to a great agreement to feature 6 of their developments in our International Hot Property toolbar on the left side of our homepage. This will be a great opportunity to represent some great developments in Mexico and drive new homebuyers to their developments website, and because the Mexico Alive project is representing 6 major developments, there will be a variety of properties suited for a refined taste.

I was just down in Cancun for a wedding and it is amazing how many new condo developments are going up in Mexico. Mexico Condos are really taking over the skyline in many of the large cities down there. On this visit to Cancun, I went into downtown and there are cranes everywhere. I must have seen billbaords and ads for about 30 brand new condo towers all over the place. The prices are pretty affordable however it is a lot tougher to get a loan down there. Generally you have to come up with more money down than in the states. We actually represent a great new project in that area called Capricho. This is a very modern luxury project with 220 units. You can see all the properties that NCO represents in Mexico on our Mexico Condos page.
When you are looking to purchase a condo in Mexico, you can expect to also be courted to purchase a timeshare. Or if you are staying at a resort, you can also expect to be hounded to be a timeshare. I would caution people about this process. I was staying at a resort and the hotel concierge will offer you free gifts etc to come listen to a brief presentation. I of course did not go to this, but some of my friends did and they were kept there for 2 hours listening to all the presentations about the different timeshares they could buy. For some people this makes sense and you get to use it a few weeks a year or trade with other timeshare owners, but I would never personally buy a timeshare.
If I was going to make an investment in Mexico, it would be in purchasing a condo in Mexico. At least this way, I would be able to build some equity in the condo and also rent it out on my own or by using a rental management company if needed. I actually considered buying a place at Trump Baja who is also a client of www.newcondosonline.com. This amazing project in Baja is only 30 minutes from my home in San Diego and the units are incredible. You can check out Trump Baja here.
Overall on my trip, Cancun was different than I remember. I was there about 10 years ago and I know that about 3 or 4 years ago they had a major hurricane. They have re-built a lot and there are 5 times as many resorts as I remember. The downtown strip is actually very beautiful and the water is crystal clear and amazing. I will definatley check out some of the amazing new condos in Cancun and see if any would make a good investment.
My one word to the wise is be careful at the bars in Mexico. On multiple occasions when ordering a drink, they definatley do not give you what your ordered. I know my vodkas pretty well and theat Grey Goose Martini tasted more like watered down white tequila. I am sure at some of the major resorts this does not happen but it did happen quite a lot at some of the palces we visited.

The annual Mexico Resort Development Conference which started in 2005 will be held again in Carlsbad, Ca next week on December 4th and 5th. After the 2005 success, this conference was recognized as the most productive event to promote deal making and information sharing for all resort and condo development in Mexico.
The conference addresses relevant issues such as land acquisition, international marketing and Mexican investment structures. Topics are discussed by seasoned experts who have seasoned backgrounds in Mexican real estate development and politics.
This event is not designed to simply provide the general real estate public about the progress of Mexican development and resort condos. The focus is solely geared towards fostering interaction between serious investors and developers currently working in Mexico or considering entering the market.
The types of attendees include investors, banking institutions, developers, land planners, designers, architects, real estate executives, etc. Many of our US baby-boomer generation is spending their retirement dollars on condos, condo hotels, and resort property in Mexico. Mexico condos are an affordable destination investment alternative to many major US markets where values have dropped.
New Condos Online and the new NCO/AMG team will be attending the conference to meet with current clients as well as new prospects to discuss media buying, online marketing, and finance for 2008 developments.
Capitalizing on the opportunities in the International Real Estate market is made simple with newcondosonline.com. Mexico condos are a wonderful opportunity to diversify a real estate portfolio in a place close to the United States. Mexico is no longer just a place for Holiday vacations or crazy Spring Breaks from college. Mexico is a place to live, work and Play. Let NewCondosOnline.com be your resource for condos in Mexico.
The U.S. housing market may be soft right now, but across the border, Mexico’s real estate shows no signs of slowing down. Tourism, a major income generator, has increased interest of foreigners to investing in Mexico real estate. Vacation homes are especially popular with American buyers, which comprise the bulk of the market. Recent reports indicate that in the last three years there has been a 60% increase in vacation home investments. Many retirees are opting to buy property in Mexico, lured by cheaper house prices and lower cost of living. Take a look at a few of the premier (and my personal favorite) Mexico Condos on www.newcondosonline.com, including Estrella Del Mar in Mazatlan, The Falls at Puerto Nuevo in Northern Baja, and San Miguel Oasis
in Cozumel Island. projects currently being showcased on
