For years we had no way to help Americans and Canadians who wanted to move to Mexico but did not have enough cash to buy their desired home in Paradise. Well, things have changed! We are now able to offer financing to those who have some cash, and a nice retirement or are still working. (Many of our clients are 2 to 5 years away from retirement, but want to buy NOW before prices drive them out of this market like it has in Cancun and Cabo San Lucas.)
Your loan is funded by a US lender, and your credit is based on your US assets and secured by the home in Mexico. Each company has different requirements and terms, so we recommend you check with each company. Here is a start about their information.
