Purchasing Mexico Real Estate with Real Estate Financing

401k, Bank Accounts, FAQ, Mexico, Money, News, Retirement
Purchasing Mexico Real Estate is an exciting decision, and with the growing and increasingly successful cross-border mortgage industry that has been developing in Mexico over the past few years, there are now more options than ever to finance your home! Mexico has historically been a cash-based economy, but with the influx of investment by foreigners, financing has become a viable alternative.  Many US lenders and banks have turned to the Mexican market, and their previous US experience makes the process more familiar than if one were to finance directly through a Mexican bank. For some people, the introduction of financing into the Mexican real estate market represents the opportunity to pursue a dream that may not have otherwise been tangible.  For others, obtaining cash to purchase a property may never…

Mexico has very low violent crime rates. The U.S. Assault rate is 5 times higher than Mexico’s. Mexico’s violent crime rates for Assault, Kidnapping and Rape are substantially lower than Canada’s and yet the U.S. State Department issues no such warnings for Canada. The rate for Rape in the U.S. is more than double the rate in Mexico.  The numbers in the charts below have been adjusted for unreported crime from the respected 2012 Prominix report and are the most accurate statistics available on this subject.

According to InternationalLiving.com, there has been a 160% surge in online searches for terms like "move overseas" and "expats overseas" post Trump election victory this week. In the wake of the presidential election results, the trend already underway of retirees going overseas for better-value living, more affordable healthcare, and warmer weather appears to be poised to accelerate. Already the Social Security Administration sends 660,528 payments overseas...and anecdotally, according to the editors of International Living, the number of U.S. retirees receiving Social Security benefits abroad is likely higher than that, as many simply continue to bank in the States while living outside the country. While Canada seems to top the list of target destinations for many potential escapees--in fact, that nation's immigration website reportedly crashed on election night -- International Living…

401(k) accounts are not designed as piggy banks to be tapped for nonretirement expenses. But stuff happens. Since the Great Recession, loans from 401(k) accounts have been rising. Some 17.6 percent of plan participants had loans outstanding last year, compared with 15.3 percent in 2008, according to the Investment Company Institute (ICI). A much smaller number of 401(k) participants (1.3 percent) took hardship withdrawals last year, according to the ICI. The loan numbers reflect the financial pressures facing so many households.

This was typically lost income due to unemployment, illness, injury, death or a major home or vehicle repair. When trouble strikes, backup emergency cushions are…
