Real Estate Investments for Portfolio DiversityReal estate investments should nowadays be considered as an ideal complement to diversify your portfolio, because of low interest rates, the stock market unpredictability and the lack of stability in primary foreign currencies.

Some investors choose precious metal investing for long-term results, while others broaden their options with land, homes, condominiums and/or apartments. Real estate experts explain that, with a careful selection, one can obtain profits of up to 30 percent (in an average three-year period).

Aside from vacation property investment, we offer you two options to consider when it’s time to pursue a real estate investment:

Given the current capital gains market value, a pre-sale real estate investment is one of the most appealing choices. When you invest in a project that is still in the drawing board, its price is much lower than when it is finished.

Remodel to Resale:
Another option is purchasing a property to remodel and subsequently sell, with utilities of up to 30 percent.

There are some factors you should keep in mind:

· A property in Mexico must be registered in the Public Property Registry (Registro Público de la Propiedad) to know its financial status.

· The property must be legally transferable, that is, it must be deeded and eligible for public record registration.

Finally, you should keep in mind that approximately eight percent of the property value will go to taxes and notary expenses. Being familiar with the best regions for real estate investments along with legal and notary documentation is essential, which is why you should consider working with an experienced real estate specialist.
