Living in Mexico can be a fantastic choice for people from around the world. Indeed, more than one million Americans have already found their way to Mexico, and they do so for excellent reasons.

Putting Down

Foreigners CAN own property in Mexico

If you'll buy a home in Mexico, you may need to learn about the fideicomiso.
In the simplest terms, a fideicomiso is a bank trust that allows you to invest in any Mexican property and own it as a beneficiary. Its main idea is that you have all the rights of real estate ownership while a Mexican bank holds the legal title to it as your trustee. It’s like fee-simple ownership, meaning that the bank cannot place liens on your property or use it in any other way. Representing your interests is the ultimate responsibility of the trustee.

Once you find your perfect place, we are here for you to insure your property from any unforeseen circumstances.
