  1. My 2 cents, buy something already build. Having title to a lot can take months to years. Building a new house come many a headaches and delays. Having gone that route I know. Recently I bougth a house that I am remodling and that has its own set of problems. Been at it now nearly a year and expect to have live in ready in other 3 to 6 months, that is if there is no other major problems. As a senior I dont have the time nor energy that it takes to construct a whole new house. Remember this is Mexico and things are done on mexican time. Better yet rent for a while. If you buy a lot you still will to need to rent, while construction is going on.

  5. Whenever you have someone doing work for you , get it in writing. What is getting done , and how much they are charging you. This what happened to me, just a few days ago. Had living room tile removed and level (stepped down living room). I provided all the materials. We agreed to an agreed price for his labor, handshake. All fine till it came do the finish what they call "la capa". He informed me that was to be at an additional labor cost. What I done. I told him no thanks, a deal is a deal. I rather pay someone else to do " la capa" even if it cost me more, then to have him finish the job.. I don't like it when they try to hike up the agreed price. I paid him the agreed price and send him off. Im now looking for someone to do " la capa". Learned my lesson. Get it in writing !
  6. Be aware of builder that insist on brick over block. Brick is more labor intenstive, that equals more cost.
