How to buy a house in Puerto Vallarta

Having a home of our own is one of the most important goals for many people. Fulfilling the dream of having a heritage where to start a new episode in our lives is a very rewarding feeling that makes us feel better about ourselves. 

As we have already told you, Grupo GOVA has built many new residential developments in the region, and we have been part of many stories of joy for families who have fulfilled their goal of buying a house in Puerto allarta or Bahía de Banderas. 

Undoubtedly, it is a very important goal, but there are also many factors to consider before beginning the mission of buying a house. And in the following publication we will tell you the essential elements you should know before deciding to buy a house in Puerto Vallarta or Bahia de Banderas.

What you should consider before buying a house

Consider aspects such as location, payment method, deed expenses, studying contracts and taking into account the capital gain of the property you are going to buy. An investment like buying a house for many people represents the biggest investment they will make in their lives, so you should keep your eyes open.

You must prepare yourself economically before starting the process, the price of real estate in Mexico is increasingly higher, so you must be realistic with your income and expenses and see that it is within your means. Establish a budget and stick to it. 

Even if you have saved enough to buy in cash, keep in mind that you will have more expenses, such as the deed, the contracting of services, insurance and other procedures. And in case your intention is to apply for a mortgage loan in Mexico, the institutions that make these loans do not cover the entire cost of the property, so you must have enough saved to pay a down payment.

Choose wisely
Before making a decision as big as buying a house, study your needs. You may not need a very large space and decide that an apartment is a better option for you. 

Study the area where you are going to buy. Make sure that the area has the basic services for a life in which you feel happy: electricity, water supply, garbage collection, access to recreational areas, proximity to health centers and commerce. It is your investment and it is your patrimony, take care of where you put your investment.

Mortgage loans in Mexico

We know that with the current market prices, saving enough money to pay for a house in cash seems like a very complicated mission. At the same time, for many, decapitalizing in this way does not sound like a good financial decision. Mortgage loans in Mexico are an excellent way to help you achieve your goal of acquiring a home.

The National Commission for the Protection and Defense of Financial Services Users (Condusef) has identified all the institutions that provide financing services or mortgage loans in Mexico. You can review their comparisons here.

It is impossible to make a general recommendation of which is the best mortgage loan in Mexico, because each person lives a different circumstance as well as their possibilities and interests. Therefore, we recommend you to visit as many institutions as you can, compare their requirements and conditions and make the decision that best suits you.

What we can recommend you are some factors to take into account before making the decision that best suits you:

    • Your personal finances. Again, shop within your means and verify that you can afford the mortgage loan you are applying for.
    • The Total Annual Cost (CAT). This refers to the actual interest rate you will pay each year on that loan. Verify this with each institution and pay close attention to it.
    • It is very likely that insurance charges, commissions and penalties will be added to the monthly payment of your loan. Study these numbers well so that you can take into account how much you will actually pay each month.
    • The type of financing. Loans can be given in pesos, foreign currencies or units such as times of minimum wage (VSM) or Unidad de Medida y Actualization (UMA), which have to do with inflation and factors that do not depend on you and can be a headache. Whenever you can, look for a way to constitute your debt in pesos and not be worried about the conversions.
