La Paz update November 2006

 

Hóla

 

The weather cooled off a little early this year.  Part of the reason was the jet stream and hurricane John that came this way.

We had a big fire downtown that gutted the Perla department store.  The building was an old landmark of about 146 years old.  I heard that they planned to have it rebuilt in 8 months or so.

My wife and I attended the AMPI 50th anniversary real estate convention in
Mexico City the 4th to 7th of October.  It was their largest convention ever.  A co-operating agreement was signed with NAR that should make it easier for foreign real estate buyers to find professional Realtors (AMPI members) in
Mexico.  The agreement allows the AMPI members to display the Realtor ‘R’ logo.  So when buying property in
Mexico hire a professional Realtor.

Conficasa International now has mortgage loans in Pesos for Canadians.

The new development Marvia located North of town is open with several lots sold and construction to begin on a couple homes later this month.

I have a new listing on a great water front property.  It is one of the very few beach front properties in
La Paz.  About 3000 square feet on a 7000 square foot plus lot.  Two years old.  Off street parking with space for an RV or boat & trailer.$749,000 USD  On my web site
http://osmx.com under John’s Casa.

Also available is El Comitan another beach front home on the South end of the bay on one-half acre plus.  Also on my web site.

In Chametla near the road to the airport is a home on about 800 square meters in a rustic setting.  Only $80,000 USD.  Not on my site yet.

On the http://www.lapazmls.com site (our local MLS) is the large Fidepaz house for $180,000 USD.

 November 2 in
Mexico is El Dia del Muerto or day of the dead.  The people create altars and decorate the graves of their loved ones with mementos and food for their sprits.  For more info on this custom check out the article on Bajainsider.com

This month don’t forget Veterans Day and don’t get over stuffed with turkey on Thanksgiving Day.  The left over’s sure are good.

Regards

Gordon
