Kathy's Real Estate Round Up
Kathy's Real Estate Round Up Kathy's Real Estate Roundup is a real estate blog written by Kathy Katz, Broker and Owner of the Baja Real Estate Group. The blog focuses on foreigners buying real estate in Baja California and its lifestyle. Right now It's currently being featured as a column in the Rosarito English Newspaper Baja Times.


How to stage your house to sell when staging services are unavailable
Practice some tricks of the trade: You wish to sell your home in Baja, and you´ve settled for an asking price. But, have you given any thought on how the house will look to strangers?  The right look is as important as the right price when trying to sell a property.

Staging Your Home For Sale in BajaThat´s the reason professional staging services exist in the States. But we don’t have them here in Rosarito. So if you want to get top dollar for your house, you´ll have to go D.I.Y. Staging helps buyers visualize a property as their future home and increases the chances of them wanting to walk through a property they had seen online.  

Studies have shown that a house decorated to a buyer’s tastes has a positive impact on it´s perceived value, while when the decoration displeases their taste, the perceived value of the house drops.

Since it´s impossible to guess the prospective client´s tastes, follow the golden rule: keep it simple.

How much to spend on a property in Baja?
Being open minded, but aware of your needs and wants, is key to finding the right property at the right price in Baja

Many of us have a Champagne taste on a beer budget, which makes Rosarito Beach the place to buy when looking for Real estate in Mexico.  But buying real estate in a foreign country can be tricky.

Las Gaviotas - Kathy's Real Estate Round UpIt may be straightforward at first: Figuring out your budget, searching online.   As you go through several websites, you may find a property that catches your eye. So you take the trip down to Rosarito…  And it turns out that “gorgeous house by the ocean” is on a remote dirt road, the rooms much smaller than what they seemed in pictures, the ocean only visible if you squint really hard.

You come to find out the property has been sitting there for two years without maintenance, and the price is not the same as advertised.

Needless to say, it is fundamental to get your information from a reputable agent and website.

The home ownership process in Baja
The process in Mexico is different – in a great way

Your offer was accepted! Owning a home in Baja was not only a dream of yours, but a well-researched retirement strategy too. But even with all the information you have gathered about ownership in Mexico, you might have been unprepared for how different –and convenient, the process is here. From property taxes to the way the Bank Trust is set, everything works favorably for the homeowner and makes for an easy inheritance process too.  
The home ownership process in Baja
Heirs and beneficiaries
While filling out paperwork for a Bank Trust, one question probably struck you as odd: Beneficiary? Why do I need a beneficiary?  It comes as a pleasant surprise to many Americans to know that in Mexico there is no Inheritance Tax (or “Death Tax”, as it´s known in the U.S.). Here, your beneficiaries are written into the Trust. In the event of your passing away, the Trust is transferred straight to these beneficiaries.  Your U.S. Last Will and Testament does not have jurisdiction on properties located in Mexico.  

In the case of a married couple with both on title, there is a right of survivorship, where the property will go to the surviving spouse. If both of you passed away, the property goes to your second beneficiary.  The process is very simple for the heirs. A Mexican Notary can help through the paperwork (remember, these Mexican “Notarios” are government appointed attorneys, and all legal transactions must be signed in front of them.) Be aware that the Notary is also responsible for transferring title from one person to another.

Heading down the Rosarito-Ensenada toll-free road, the Calafia towers are hard to miss. They have become a landmark of the coastal scenery, a sign of delightful surprises awaiting us: Pacific Ocean Views, mouthwatering lobster tacos, surf breaking at your toes, sea breeze.

Things you Didn´t Know About CalafiaWhile newer communities have come and gone amidst turmoil and scandal, Calafia Condos Resort & Villas stand tall, having become one of the most respected and stable private residential neighborhoods in Rosarito. 

If you´ve never been to Calafia, there are many things you may not know about them..

Things you should consider before building a house in Baja
The idea of a custom-built house in Rosarito can be very attractive. It means that you can dictate the layout and create a space that meets your specific needs.

Things you should consider before building a house in BajaSome of our clients have the erroneous idea that building a house in Baja may be more inexpensive than buying it. However, that is not necessarily true. One thing is certain: building in Mexico is far more affordable than building in the U.S. It may also be easier on your wallet since you can add rooms and upgrades as you go.

However, there is a lot to know before taking on a construction project in Mexico, so here are some tips which have helped our clients:
