“While it still remains to be a buyer’s market, we have seen numerous sales and some over the million dollar mark in the last 6 months”, says Max Katz , owner of The Baja Real Estate Group . Las Gaviotas is the number one choice for people looking to own a house versus a condo. Las Gaviotas, one of the oldest and most well run communities in the area, consist of 298 homes all with red roof tiles, flag stone streets and an ocean front board walk. That combined, reminds you of the old world charm that Mexico offers. “We continue to see strong interest in Las Gaviotas, with a buyer driving down from Los Angles for the day just this past weekend to tour a new listing. Home Owner Financing and price was the key for this visit. This is not only good for Las Gaviotas, it is a testimonial that people are coming back to the area and this time they are investing”, adds Katz

Calafia Condos who has started delivery of their 3rd tower along with a brand new ocean front infinity pool, new 5000 square foot club house and a large array of amenities such as a 16 seat private movie theater, spas, and private Jacuzzis is also seeing the upswing. While the Developer of Calafia is busy welcoming homes owners that bought over 2 years ago, he is also very optimistic with how well sales are going with new buyers. Just this week, Bill Brotherton and Kristy Hugstad from Dana Point California, purchased a Calafia Condo in Tower III after looking for over a year. The reason, says Bill Brotherton was location, price and amenities, not to mention the $300.00 a year property taxes they will pay for their ocean front Condo. That’s what a dinner would cost in most mayor ocean front communities in the US.

For both Club Marena and Palacio Del Mar, the penthouse units still seem to be the number one choice. Palacio Del Mar just closed on a luxurious 2800 ft², 3 bedroom, 3 bath penthouse .This luxurious community that offers home owners granite bottom indoor lap pool, ocean front infinity pool, a 25,000 square foot club house complete with spas, state-of-the art gym, all overlooking Descanso Bay.

Larry who in recent months has sold 3 villas in club Marena, says not only is he seeing great buyers he is also seeing activity from local Agents and their buyers touring his listings. Another good sign for Baja!

A welcome sign for the Baja Real Estate market is the new construction of Naos Living , the areas first green building projects with a focus on wellness and lifestyle. “I am pleasantly surprise with how well we are doing” says Catherine Krupshaw a US Broker from California, who is now leading the sales at Naos, she boasts – “the project speaks for itself. Who wouldn’t want to own an ocean front condo on a long sandy beach with prices starting at $300,000?” – Krupshaw asks. “The latest buyer at NAOS, who chose to buy a one bedroom with a Den is looking forward to the rental opportunity”, Krupshaw adds – “with the Convention Center being built just a mile away and due to be completed around the same time as Naos in mid-2012”.

Baja California Mexico moving ahead with new border crossing. Compilied By: Miguel Sedano.

While U.S. funding to finish the expansion of the San Ysidro port of entry is not yet allocated, Mexico appears on track to complete its new southbound border crossing.

Mexico is to finish construction in 2012 of the crossing, known as El Chaparral, as well as new bridges that will be needed for the transborder traffic, said Mexican Congressman Gastón Luken on Friday during the 21st summit of the South County Economic and Development Council.Mexico New Border 2012

Luken, who represents Baja California, said that Mexico has allocated $55 million to finish the project as planned. The funds came from fees collected at Mexican commercial border crossings.

“The expansion project should be seen as an investment not an expense,” Luken said about the San Ysidro expansion.

The remodeling and expansion project is to be done in three phases, which together are to cost $577 million.

Phase one is under way which involves the demolition of the existing port of entry building and expansion of traffic lanes from 24 to 62.

The second phase, which is to start in 2013, involves improving the pedestrian processing facilities.

And in the third phase, the I-5 southbound lanes will be shifted to accommodate the expansion of northbound lanes. The new southbound lanes are to connect to El Chaparral.

The total San Ysidro project was to be completed by 2016 but that date is now in doubt because the U.S. Congress has not yet funded phases two and three. When pressed as to what a potential funding delay means, project managers say that the expansion will be finished, but later than planned.

What’s more, a potential delay would also affect the planned U.S. expansions of the Otay Mesa and Calexico border crossings.

The annual summit drew about 400 people to the San Diego Convention Center to hear a variety of leaders and analysts discuss the region’s economy. One panel featured elected officials from all levels of government in California, as well as Luken, speaking about “The Future of the Border Region.”

They all spoke about the importance of securing the funds to complete the San Ysidro project.

“Reducing the wait times should be the priority,” stressed Assemblyman Ben Hueso, D-San Diego, during the panel discussion.

He said that reducing wait times by one hour per day would generate an additional $7 billion in revenue per year for San Diego County.

For his part, San Diego Councilman David Alvarez said he recently visited Washington, D.C. as part of a regional delegation that included officials from both sides of the border, including Luken, to lobby members of Congress to approve the funds to complete the expansion.

“There are no funds yet, but we must make the effort to raise awareness of the importance of transforming the San Ysidro border crossing,” said Alvarez, who represents District 8.

U.S. Rep. Bob Filner, D-San Diego, said, “many people would die to live in a region like this one.” That’s why an investment should be made to make traveling between both countries easier, something that would spur economic development in both countries, he said.

This is why you buy Ensenada Real Estate

 

As the sun rises in Baja, I am anxious to get out and meander along the beautiful walking paths around this beautiful Ensenada ocean front resort.
The fresh ocean air blows gently this morning and I feel like heading out from my house to watch all of the sea birds soar just above the waves looking for breakfast.
There are gentle one to two foot waves lapping at the shore.
As I walk along the cobblestone path, I remind myself that I am in such aspecial place. 
Sometimes, I take it for granted.
This morning, I was awakened by a beautiful quail sauntering along the top on my rear balcony with the mountains beyond.
Outside the front door is the Whale Watch where the migration of whales up and down the coast is a sight to behold.
So many areas in this 1750 acre gated complex have such diverse sights and sounds.
Every day is a NEW DAY full And life and beauty in this paradise called Bajamar.
Come let us take you on a Ensenada Real Estate tour.

What retirees wish they knew when they were younger? By Miguel Sedano

Their answers were both simple and wise so I’ll summarize here.
1. Be happy now.  Not next week, not next month, not next year. Now. The great Western disease we are spreading around the world is “I’ll be happy when.” When I get that BMW, when I get that Ocean front house, when I get that status. Americans are among the luckiest people in the history of the world. Don’t get so wrapped up looking at what you don’t have that you miss that, what you do have.
2. Appreciate your friends and family. When you’re 95 years old and you’re on your death bed, do you think you’ll be surrounded by your clients? It’s your friends and family who matter most.
3. If you have a dream, go for it.  Want to write a book? Visit Mexico? Learn to speak Spanish? Your dream doesn’t have to big–it could be one that people think is silly, or just plain nuts. It’s your dream, and you should go for it now because when you’re 75, you may not be able to do it.
If you are thinking in moving to Mexico, don’t think more act today.  We Can Help.  Call today 858-433-0561 or email Miguel Sedano  info@rentinginmexico.com the perfect home is waiting for you.

Interest in Mexico tourism surges, despite safety worries

by AFP Relax news

A leading hotel booking website has revealed a sharp increase in interest in travel to Mexico, as the country struggles to rebuild its reputation after an escalation in drug-related violence.

Earlier this year, US college students were warned against spending their annual spring break in Mexico, a sign of how serious authorities in some states believed the situation has become.

But it seems that not all travelers are being discouraged by the headlines resulting from Felipe Calderon’s war on drugs, launched in 2006, which has prompted a surge in violent incidents as the army struggles to crush the country’s drugs cartels.

Expedia revealed last week that travel bookings made to Mexico from its portfolio of global brands, which includes the Expedia and Hotels.com websites, were up nearly 25 percent in the last 12 months.

The majority of the interest was from the US, Canada and the UK, said Expedia, which described the country as one of its top three destinations in terms of traveler feedback.

The online giant made its comments at Acapulco’s Tianguis Turistico (March 25-28), an annual event organized by Mexican tourism officials to boost the country’s profile as a top Latin American tourism destination, where Mexico’s Tourism Secretary Gloria Guevara Manzo said March 24 that the country had “made real and sustained progress in making Mexico safe and secure.”

Ahead of the conference, financial giant Visa also noted that the amount spent on its cards by inbound visitors had gone up from $4 billion in 2009 to $4.4 billion in 2010, describing Mexico as a “sought after destination.”

No surprise then, that country’s beautiful beaches and rich cultural heritage are continuing to attract hotel chains, who are betting on an eventual end to the drug wars — at which point they believe the country is set to be a lucrative destination, thanks to its excellent location in the Americas.

Later this year, Sol Melia will open two flagship resorts, Paradisus La Esmeralda and Paradisus La Perla, both on the country’s stunning eastern Caribbean coastline.

Last month, Ritz-Carlton announced that it will open a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Los Cabos, a 124-villa complex with views across the Sea of Cortez and private infinity pools, butler service and outdoor fireplaces.

By Susan A Mahalick

Las Gaviotas,  Rosarito Beach, Mexico Sees Rising Home Values and Sales Once Again

Las Gaviotas, Rosarito Beach, Mexico Sees Rising Home Values and Sales Once Again

In the last 6 months, 7 homes have sold in this little Mexican style village know as Las Gaviotas. Amazingly homes are selling from the low $200.000 to well over the million $$$ mark. Many people live there full time. Or they spend half the year living there, or even use it for a second home if the weather is bad at their primary residence. Las Gaviotas has a old world charm with stone streets and Architecturally interesting homes….298 homes in all line a sandy coastline with semi private beach . Almost everyone has a good view of the ocean. Lots of social activities and even a Spanish class on site in a setting that has been called the Beverly Hills of Rosarito.

Baja sales, just like the US sales were slowing down to almost none. With the cost of living on the rise in the US, and the cost of living here low, Mexico just makes good sense. read more »
