or furnished okay. if you want to move here right now, I need the house just like this and it’s okay the sink is so big, I know what is your favorite part of your job? meet people yeah like you all the time, have a new friends, it’s really nice you’re a very social person oh thank you, yes, sometimes sometimes I’m kind of grumpy like you know, it’s part of the life. I think that’s probably like you saying that that that you’re having a casual day like like these are
your casual shoes aren’t they yes of course this is casual yes and then I
have my high heels like you see in my car, because here you need both all right let’s go upstairs and see
that this is another bedroom. all right what? a tub. is this a bathtub? yes yes it is well you need a a bikini or something right? but you can use it. oh my gosh. yes. you can sit here and take your bubble bath and look out at the view there’s a kitty cat! Gracie’s a little black and
white kitty cat… it even has that new house smell it like smells like a new house yeah oh yeah wow this is more space. you need to see this bathroom I love the mirror. you can film yourself in the mirror this is so fresh. yes it’s so open feeling and this kitchen is so
pretty it’s big yeah are they still building new properties like this one so
if somebody comes in and says I want a new one and I want to pick like I want
the stove from the middle one and I want this thing from that and then they can
kind of customize it all yes okay you can pick everything as you want. also the
same with the furniture and everything and starts at 67,000 yes wow it’s very cheap. it depends about the furniture, right furniture, and the things that you wanted, but it’s a really good price also you have a parking lot
okay so you have parking yeah yeah because if you want to live in the south, yeah you need a car you have to have a car, yes you do. come on. let’s go see the second floor this is the main bedroom. okay pretty it’s a different kind of style. more modern. yeah. you can see the bathroom. nice and big because right now in this model of the house we have three bedrooms yeah it does everything feels so new and modern and like fancy no TVs in the bedroom that’s right hmm
no they say you sleep much better if you don’t have a TV in your bedroom. of course, of course that happens. you were
telling me a lot of people who live in this part of the city work in Silao, Irapuato,
or Leon because it’s very close from here, uh huh. and it’s safe to live here, because it’s so close
yeah you have security all the time, you have cameras, you have all the police here
just in these neighbors so it’s very safe. the kids can just go out to play and also they
can I read a really nice space for the kids, a playground
oh yeah yeah you and also you can stay here you can go to the Centro, I don’t know like 20 minutes so you have both yes so if you want to stay outside of the centro, out of the noise, you can live here so what I liked about the properties that you showed me
today is like there’s such a range the the one in– it’s Momias, Momias, it’s close to the museum that was like a compound and but felt more traditional more Mexican right and was closer to the center but then you have
this which is super modern and all brand new and very chic and it’s a lot quieter
so if you wanted kind of and it’s so cheap it’s so affordable yes it is so it
seems like you could basically come in with any budget and say this is my
budget and this is what I’m looking for and you could go way down here or way up there, yes of course. and do do you have anybody who comes here and like buys up several
of these units and turns them into rentals like does this is this a
potential like rental market at all? and so you can buy a property like these and
we can rent it between 15 and 12,000 depends, also, right depends on the model and all the things you have. so you could if you were let’s say thinking I’m gonna
retire in five to ten years you could come here you could buy a property for
$70,000 mm-hmm you could rent it out to a family that you know might want to
live here and work in Silao and then then you come back when you’re ready to
retire and you have your own place I’m scheming…Jesse? you can live here, come Jesse well thank you so much Nallely thank you for showing me all these
things and taking your whole afternoon to drive me around everywhere it’s okay
it’s a nice weather here thank you so much and if you are looking
to rent buy or buy and then rent your property in Guanajuato you’ve got
to come work with Nallely you just have to you just don’t do anything else just

  1. Thank you for conducting the interview but in future when posing a question, please stop and let the expert answer. While you may think you know the answer, I assume there is a reason you invited the expert on your video. Several times you asked a question and continued on stating what you believe you understand is the answer.

  2. Be careful when buying in another country. The workmanship might be shoddy and materials not up to par, so just because it looks pretty, it might be a nightmare later.

  3. Why would ANYONE want to buy a house in Mexico? Seriously, I am not saying that to be mean. There is a reason why Mexicans are coming to the U.S.A. in droves…SEVERE economic instability. Do you REALLY want to not just live there but OWN something there too? So many people do not understand that there is no such thing as "Civil Rights" or "Due Process" in Mexico. Americans are despised in Mexico and nobody is allowed to say it. Do NOT buy property in Mexico. Save your money. YES…the United States is not perfect. Mexico is even worse.

  4. North Americans, please do NOT overpay for houses in Mexico! The greedy realtors raise the WAY prices up for foreigners, and then very few local people can buy.

  5. Just to say that these prices are a bit inflated, to be real and true to say, as you get older a two-story home will become a problem, single floor flat and a small garage could get starting price as 250 000 pesos… that's 15000 dls. for a small 2 bedroom home, make friends all over, try other towns that still have the rustic flavor but have all services and connect to capitols. it is well worth to travel and shop arround

  6. More people are wanting to buy property in Mexico and others have already retired there. Just keep in mind that if you are an American citizen, uncle sam still has its hands in whatever property you own anywhere in the world.

  7. So where is the link that you mentioned to the real estate lady’s website, anyway. Just asking 🤔

  8. Uhhhh YEAH!??? AMERICANS CANT OWN (its called a 100 YEAR LEASE) unless they marry mexican citizen ( AMERICA SHOULD DO SAME THING!!! Same in HAWAII: CANT BUY HAWAII PROPERTY UNLESS YOU CITIZEN). Americans SO DUMB!!!!

  9. Also Mexico can TAKE YOU PROPERTY WHENEVER THEY WANT!??? Look it up!! ( thats why its CASH UP FRONT)

  10. City looks good but NO WAY!! (6:42 ROOSTER!!??? Rooster=GHETTO). In most AMERICAN CITIES NOISY ASS ROOSTERS ARE ILLEGAL (unless outside city) want chicks? Order Fedex!!! If i pay $50k I EAT ROOSTERS!! Hahahaha

  11. Mexico is nice, but I can't live watching my back every day, and getting ripped off shopping, transit,etc.because they see I'm an American.

  12. Hi how are you! My husband lives In Mexico and is wanting to move to his hometown leon Guanajuato and he wants find a house there but does not know where to start looking. Also I live in the US and would like to move there too but what kind of job do you and your husband do? I would love to work from home.

  13. Those who are blabbering about how affordable housing in Mexico is – look here: https://www.numbeo.com/property-investment/rankings_by_country.jsp. Affordability index in Mexico is about three times lower than in the USA. You are conveniently forgetting how little Mexicans make with respect to the real estate prices. Yeah, Mexico will be affordable if you come there with money made in the USA.

  14. Wow that is awesome and amazing mine heritage is Mexican my family is from Michoacan and I think that would be awesome to move out their life would be different and more affordable than here in the US many blessings thank you for sharing🥰

  15. Mexico has more credit available for Mexican home buyers than ever before. Bank interest rates have come down over the years. Also, the government-funded loans with low-interest rates (6.9) have always been available to any Mexican who is registered, works in the formal economy and pays taxes. The most popular program is INFONAVIT. If you are an immigrant as I am, and have worked in Mexico and paid taxes, you are entitled to participate in this program. If you never take out an INFONAVIT loan, the money that you have paid in via taxes is refunded to you upon retirement. New neighborhoods are going up all over Mexico and it is because loans are more available. https://portalmx.infonavit.org.mx/wps/portal/infonavit.web/el-instituto/el-infonavit/acerca-de-nosotros/!ut/p/z1/jY9ND8FAFEV_i0W3fXd8ZdiVMEUjRBo1GympQaojY7R_X5WNRMXbvZdzbu4jSRHJLM5PKrYnncVpuW9kd9sVgD9sszkPZh0ssZgJTMFWPqN1BTQ5IAZgc8F9Dm88mox6QaspGEj-4_8Anj5qxkPpywqpaxCyN_AjY0pSpXr3etfLdi2uSJrkkJjEuHdTno_WXm99Bw6KonCV1ipN3L2-OPimHPXNUvRJ0vUSRjh30jzwGg-fLLOs/dz/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/

  16. Am not sure if buying a house in MEXICO is wise and safe, so many sharks wanting to rip off people in general. Their government is so corrupt, I just don't trust them, they 'll try to get your house in any way, specially from people that are not mexicans

  17. I have never seen so much BS, about Mexico in my life, as listed in this website.
    I have lived and worked in Mexico for over 40 years. I bought an old hacienda, of 3600 square feet, built in 1863, and rebuilt in 1911, that I have used for a winter home for the last 21 years. I'm in a small village, 65 miles inland, with a 25 mile long dam, wit record size bass, just 2 miles from my property. If you want to be left alone, with no problems, find a property like mine. When you get a few Americans living close together, the first thing that happens…they make rules. If you want rules, and regulations…stay in the US.
    I'm 65 miles from the ocean, and approximately 250 miles, north of Mazatlan.
    I bought this property, with nothing but a bill of sale. The government has now issued a title…so much for some of the remarks about Mexico nationalizing my property, etc. Mexico wants Gringos here, to help the economy, and for taxes.
    There are very strict real estate laws, that have to be abided to. Ask the ladies from this site, with questions about real estate, they will put you on the right tract. If everything is done right, there will be no problems. Talk to an attorney, and he will guide you. Many attorneys speak English. Don't listen to some of the squirrels, like the ones that are spouting BS here, and don't know the ass from third base.

  18. Are there any properties with large rooms that are retiree affordable? Seems every video shows little rooms or bi expensive houses. The small places are cute but I can live in a shoebox in the States. Mexico promises more for less and Im ready to move.

  19. Curious if this is a "thing" in Mexico…the city I live in the US is one that over the years became a tech hub and attracted lots of companies, followed by people from places like California and New York, where the cost of living was significantly higher than in my city. These folks were amazed at how cheap housing was here – they started buying up houses left and right, both to live in and as investments, and that drove the housing prices for locals through the roof. Now, pretty much no one here can afford to buy a house anymore! Same thing happened to the overall cost of living…it used to be affordable to live in my city, but now it's insanely expensive due to the influx of new residents from states where the cost of living was much higher. Does this same thing happen when gringos with money retire to towns in Mexico and buy homes? I'd hate to make the move and then find out I'm responsible for making it more difficult for locals to live, shop, buy a house, etc. Thoughts?

  20. The best will be that American stay home…pretty soon Mexicans won't be able to afford to live in their own country.

  21. Hi Erin, I saw in another vid that you bank with Charles Schwab. Can you tell me why you chose that bank? Is it easier to intergrate into Mexico with that bank> I've been looking for a bank to set up a Mexican trust so I can buy a lot to build on, do you know what steps I can take here in the states to set up before I get there?

  22. Does anyone know why almost everyone online posts only Amazon links and never seem to post Ebay or other links to buy stuff? Does Amazon not allow any others to be used if their links are used? Ebay pays rather generous commissions I think. Yet nobody seems to ever use them. Tis a mystery! Please enlighten us.

  23. Work in Texas truck driver live in Mexico 80k annual salary I live okay😉 in MX oh BTW my property tax to a minimum living cost to a minimum as well

  24. No mention of the fact an American cant own property in Mexico ..State Law forbids Voting becoming a citizen or owning property ..I seriously decided to look up the legalities…good luck Gringos ..

  25. Hello! This my first time watching your videos and I like them, but one thing is the music overpowered your voice, so maybe get a better microphone would help your videos more and when the real state lady was showing you that house it is a lot of eco .

  26. Wooow why got? Go to zacatecas it's more beautiful…. and thank you glad I found you and it's always nice to have a different opinion or perspective from an American….

  27. Also I may add.. average salary its 400..00 a month in mex… so if you retire … average SSI its 800.00 usd… get you a long way in mex tnx again

  28. OMG ITS REALLY ALL ABOUT THE H A I R ISN'T IT!!! CAN YOU GET ANY MORE SHALLOW? HAIR & HAVING SOME RICH CHUMP PAY ALL YOUR BILLS FOR YA. I gave up on MURCAN GOLD DIGGIN HOES and "imported" a FILIPINA 5 years ago. Even tho shes 100% better wife than ANY MURCAN hoes, its all about her FOKKIN L O N G HAIR! GIMMIE A BREAK!
    And then, whut kinda FOOL would even consider visiting that "3rd world shit hole", never mind LEASING a SHACK (I always heard foreigners cant OWN property there). Your LIB LOGIC tells you "gee, I want to relocate from my "FIRST WORLD" COUNTRY TO LIVE IN A "3RD WORLD" SHIT HOLE". Okay, you are totally QUEER for MESKIN "CULTURE" but HALF the population of MOST major MURCAN CITIES is C H O L O ! JEEZUZ! WAKE UP AND SMELL THE TACOS, PINDEJO!! .

  29. I wish men realize that women like a bathtub.since as men are the ones building these homes, all they put it in is a shower and no bathtub. I cannot live without both.

  30. I used to own a home at a similar price in Mexico. If it is in a tourist area you can rent it to visitors. For the average Mexican citizen though it would be way out of their price range.

  31. I bought a pretty little craftsman cottage with a barn, a greenhouse, a kids playhouse , fully fenced & gated on one acre in Louisiana for only 35K. Best part of it is the food. Here, I get fresh seafood and local fresh vegetables. In Mexico, I fear getting dog in my tacos!

  32. I live in a tent and travel the country on a motorcycle….now currently in SoCal but wanting to hit the road to Mexico to see some of the beautiful country. I have no debt, no children, and free to do what I would like. Can’t wait to see as much of Mexico as possible

  33. $245,000 for a house in the middle on nowhere in Mexico?????????? What's the point of moving to Mexico then? You can buy a 3000sq ft house in most states of the US for this kind of money.

  34. I seen a beautiful three bedroom house on a cliff overlooking the ocean in Puerto Vallarta with a great big concrete wall around it and a gate for under $100,000 something like that in the United States would cost you Millions and yeah it needed a little work but it was livable as is
