Buying a property in Mexico can be tricky as a foreigner as the process is quite different than in North America and other parts of the world. Ada and Stefan are originally from the Bay Area in San Francisco, and now travel back and forth to their not one, but two homes in Puerto Vallarta Mexico! In this episode, they discuss their journey to buying their first and then what inspired them to purchase a second home, what they love about Puerto Vallarta, and helpful and practical advice for those who are thinking about moving to Mexico. They also share important information about how to look for a property, the purchasing process, the convenience of location, and all the practical things associated with a new property.
