Buying your Second Home in Puerto Vallarta or Riviera Nayarit: A Complete Guide

If you are thinking of retiring, looking for a new adventure, or are simply tired of the icy days of the north, buying your second home in this warm paradise is a great option. The Bay of Banderas, with its perfect climate during the fall and winter months, its proximity to the ocean, mountains, the Romantic Zone, the world famous Botanical Gardens, the local historic towns, the picturesque nearby towns and the large jungle terrain to explore, make Puerto Vallarta and its surroundings extremely attractive.

Plus, having a major airport just minutes from downtown Vallarta makes it easy to get in and out of Mexico and makes moving to paradise a convenient and great option.

However, Mexico has its own system regarding property rights, and it is quite different from that of the United States or Canada. To make sure you understand how the real estate business is carried out in Mexico you will need the assistance of an expert. AMPI real estate professionals receive training and credentials as proof of education on the latest laws and protocols for buying and selling real estate in the Banderas Bay areas. This gives you peace of mind and ensures that your personal experience buying and selling real estate in Mexico is transparent, ethical and legal.

AMPI Associates (brokers) and Affiliates (agents) can help you explore options through the FlexMLS database and offer advice, suggestions and many properties to choose from such as condos, houses or villas that meet your needs.

Your AMPI real estate professional is trained, accredited, and the best person to advise you as you navigate and negotiate the purchase of a second home (or permanent retirement home) in the Banderas Bay area.
