San Felipe Real Estate

San Felipe, Baja, Mexico
Amor Property

San Felipe, Baja, Mexico has paid its dues to a fraternity whose voice galloped around the world until its momentum was poleaxed by the Great Recession of '08. There is still property for sale, but its is more in line with flopping homes, rather than flipping them. The financial crises, despite President's Calderon's valient efforts, has affected Mexico even more than the USA. The year 2013 began with optimism and economic growth, but then the PRI's dramatic reforms were proposed and the fiscal landscape took a downswing. The new Value Added Tax reined in the construction industry's slow progress and by the close of 2013, analysts and various business sectors were doubtful about 2014's prognosis. But that may be a good thing.

Recessionary periods offer real estate bargains. Prices have dropped dramatically and offer exceptional opportunities and value for affordable rental, vacation or retirement investments. Whether you are interested in land development, building condominiums or hotels, looking for investment property or you want to live here permanently or part-time and take a lease or fideicomiso, owning property in San Felipe may be the answer to any one of the following questions.

  • Looking for a warm place to spend those snowy winter months?
  • Want a change of pace for your retirement years?
  • Feeling the need to settle into a custom-designed home with view of the Sea of Cortez but can't afford water-view prices in your area?
  • Tired of the rain and want a place with a near year-round sunny climate and sandy beaches?
  • Looking for a wise investment in the real estate environment?
