Cost Of Living In Mexico

 

WITH AN ESTIMATED COST OF LIVING THAT IS 30 PERCENT LESS THAN IN THE STATES, BUDGET-CONCIOUS HOMEBUYERS ARE LOOKING SOUTH TO MEXICO

CALAFIA, Baja California – Early retirement, a lower cost of living and being able to maintain your lifestyle while watching your wallet are all reasons why  American buyers have turned to  Mexican real estate especially in our struggling economy, said  Max Katz, sales director at Calafia Condos Resort and Villas, a new community in Baja California. Once considered to be a well-kept secret, the significantly lower cost of living in Mexico paired with great home values are attracting Americans south of the border who want a great home and a rich lifestyle at a fraction of the cost.

Overall, the cost of living in Mexico is about 30 percent less than in the U.S., he said.

“Golf here is cheaper than compared to the U.S.,” said Bob Dawson who moved to Mexico 13 years ago with his wife Carol.  “The food is good too.  In fact, just the other day I bought a delicious thick rib eye steak for only $5.  Ocean fishing here is excellent and it is quite easy and cheap to rent a boat for a day excursion.”

The Dawsons moved to Mexico 13 years ago so that Bob could retire five years sooner.  They now own a home at Calafia Condos Resort and Villas, which is only 30 minutes south of the international border.  The favorite part of their home is the great ocean view and they can even watch whales migrating from the balcony.    read more »
