    Has anyone bought or sold property in Mexico recently?

    I have a family member who asked for some guidance on them selling their condo in Cancun. I am not familiar with transactions in foreign countries, but I suspect a member or two here might have some knowledge about them.

    From what I understand there are some quirks to it -- and there are no title companies there to make the process easy. Before someone asks, this is being sold to a Buyer who used to rent the property, so no agent involved.

    It is my understanding that you cannot actually own a Mexican property as an American if it is in a restricted zone, which Cancun is being within 50km of the water.

    It actually has to be brokered into a Real Estate Trust to hold the title for the buyer. Typically these trusts have to be renewed every 30-50 years.

    I have a close family member that owns a few hotels on the beach 40 minutes from Cancun. I’ve heard a few crazy stories about payoffs that had to be made to get certain things done. It sounded like a huge headache.

    My dog does the same thing. Won't even sit down unless I give her a bribe.

    Yeah if you're doing business in the Americas expect to bribe people. That's just how it works.
