Podcast 007: Exploring the Condo Market: Pre-construction to Resale Options

In this episode of Dream Retirement In Mexico, hosts Risa Morimoto and Taniel Chemsian dive into the intricacies of the condo real estate market in Mexico. They discuss the popularity of condos among baby boomers and generation X individuals who are looking to downsize and simplify their lives.

They also highlight that not all cities and regions in Mexico have a strong condo market, with some places having a culture of traditional colonial homes. For example, in Oaxaca City, finding a house is more common than finding a condo due to limited availability. They emphasize the importance of gathering all the necessary information and consulting professionals and experts when making real estate decisions in a new country.

The episode also explores the topic of pre-construction and resale condos. The decision between the two depends on an individual’s style, taste, and comfort level. It is crucial to conduct thorough investigations into the developer’s history, financial standing, project funding, and legal documents such as construction permits and environmental impact studies. Taniel stresses the importance of hiring a real estate attorney to guide and provide a deep dive into these aspects.

Overall, this episode serves as a comprehensive guide to navigating the condo real estate market in Mexico, providing valuable insights, tips, and precautions for individuals considering retiring in Mexico.
