With the debt ceiling crisis and economic disaster in the United States more than ever Americans are looking to buy homes for sale in Mexico. In general, properties are less expensive in most areas of Mexico, food and other costs are lower and the quality of life can be far higher than that enjoyed in the United States on the same income.
A couple of areas represent outstanding value such as: La Paz, Baja California Sur – located close to the tip of the Baja Peninsula La Paz is the capital of the state and is situated on the Sea of Cortez with outstanding water sports and fishing. The city boasts seven universities, a state music school, art galleries and a rich cultural life. Medical facilities are excellent. Homes in La Paz can be obtained for as low as 60,000. USD or a luxury waterfront condominium can sell for as high as 1.5 million USD.
Morelia, Michoacan in the western part of Mexico is also a state capital and is a colonial city with outstanding architecture and history. It enjoys an international airport with access to major US cities and outstanding medical facilities. There is an international music festival, a mariachi festival and a world class film festival each year. New developments located close to the city center offer fine new homes in gated communities. Homes range from 40,000. USD and upwards.
While these cities take advantage of the best of Mexican culture with its folklore, culture, art and history, they will also feel familiar to US and Canadian citizens who look for modern shopping and amenities.
