Questions and Projections of the Mexico Area

Can Foreigners buy real estate in Mexico?
Yes, a person of any nationality can legally buy real estate in Mexico. However, to purchase property within the restricted zone, (50 kilometers or 31 miles from the shoreline) foreigners are required to purchase property through a bank trust (fideicomiso) or by establishing a Mexican corporation.


The restricted zone is property within 50 km or 31 miles of Mexico’s coast, or within 100 km or 62 miles of Mexico’s borders.


Fideicomiso is a bank trust created in order to comply with the provisions of Article 27 of the Mexican Constitution in which foreigners are limited in acquiring the direct title to the  property in the restricted zone.


To request a permit and complete the process may take five to six weeks.


The bank’s name appears on the title as the owner of the property. However, the beneficiary has all the rights over the property, including the right to: sell, rent, renovate, build, etc. The bank cannot sell or dispose of the property without the beneficiary’s written consent. The properties held in trust are not considered an asset of the bank. To establish a trust for a property in the restricted zone, it is necessary to obtain a permit from the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores (Secretary of Foreign Relations) which has a duration of 50 years and is perpetually renewable or transferable. The beneficiary must pay an annual fee to the bank for the administration of the trust, which, depending on the bank, will be between $500 and $600 USD. You can purchase more than one property with the same fideicomiso; however the annual costs will increase as well.


What are the advantages in investing through our Mexican corporation?
Foreign individuals looking to invest and do business in Mexico can do so through our incorporated  Mexican Company.


Our Mexican corporation has the same legal rights as a Mexican Citizen to acquire property anywhere in Mexico, including real estate in the restricted zone, without acquiring through a fideicomiso.

The corporation has the potential to be a very lucrative venture by renting out prime vacation property.

You can also can give dividends and tax advantages from your Mexican Corporation.

Investing in our Mexican Corporation also provides the required financial data to aid in residence visa applications.

We have many properties that are obtained through our Mexican corporation.

There is no limit to how many properties our Mexican corporation  owns.

We treat all our investors as business owners and we file reports monthly and annual financial reports as well as conduct annual shareholders meetings

Facts Quintana Roo projected to see 65% investment increase in 2019
Quintana Roo has been projected as being one of the strongest economies in the country for this year, not only in terms of tourism, but also in investments.

According to El Instituto de Desarrollo y Financiamiento de Quintana Roo (Idefin), the state is anticipated to see a 65 percent increase in its economy with projects in real estate, health, communications and technology.

They report that over the course of the year, 15 foreign-investment projects are already set for both the north and south.

In the south, specifically in Chetumal, real estate developments, health projects and technology centers are being planned that will modernize the urban infrastructure pending the relocation of the Tourism Secretariat (Sectur) to the state’s capital city.

The investment groups are from the United States, Canada, Spain and France and the projects are focused on the real estate, health, communications, technology and agro-industry sectors.

In 2018, according to data from la Secretaría de Economía, Quintana Roo received $274 million USD in foreign investments, mainly from the United States, Spain and Canada, a figure that is forecast to increase dramatically this year.

Telcel is also investing in a tower that will allow the capturing and distributing of cell phone signals in southern communities such as Maya Balam, Kuchumatán, Caanlumil, Miguel Hidalgo, San Isidro la Laguna, Blanca Flor and Ávila Camacho.

This investment is part of a larger project that includes the installation of five antennas in different communities so residents of at least twenty towns in the south will have access to digital technology.

For the north, the government recently announced a new multi-billion-peso mega mall for Cancun. In December, Canadian company K & A Associates announced their intention to invest around 4.5 billion peso in the development of medical and residential facilities due to the state’s booming growth.
