Help in Pricing Your Property
As a first step, we will help you come to a realistic and achievable price for your property, based on a careful review of comparable properties and current market conditions. You don’t need to guess about value – we can help you reach an objective conclusion about price.
Help with Your Documents
To sell a house, condominium or lot in this area, you need to have the following ready for us to review and copy:
- Title/deed (“Escritura”)
- FM2 – FM3 or FMT
- Utility bills (such as phone, electricity and telephone) *note the utility bills must be in the name of the person who holds title and the address should be exactly as indicated on the deed.
- Copy of your identification (passport or voters registration card)
- Copy of your yearly property tax (predial)
- If you have floor plans of your property and a brief description of what your monthly expenses are (domestic help, gardener, electric, gas, water, etc), this can help us compile a complete profile of your property.
Assistance with the Capital Gains Tax for Real Estate in Mexico
The Capital Gains law changes every year. We do not determine if you are eligible for an exemption, that is the strict job of the “Notario Publico”. After we receive all of your documentation, we send it to be reviewed. A formal response from the Notario’s office is then sent to you for your review.
Our agency is not an independent entity like most real estate franchises in Mexico. We are a Division of Prudential California Realty, based in San Diego, which is the single largest real estate franchise in the U.S. As a part of this organization, we are required to comply with all of the same professional and ethical standards established in the U.S.
