Find a Home in Mexico City

The aptly named capital of Mexico, Mexico City is full to the brim of beautiful architecture; just the type of thing that doesn't necessarily leap to mind when you think of Mexico. With that being said, the gorgeous climate of Mexico courtesy of the Mexican Gulf, coupled with the city's proximity to the United States and Caribbean Islands makes it a popular destination for those looking to experience a brand new way of life with an abundance of history - and better yet, if you already speak Spanish you'll get along pretty well!

Find a home in Mexico City

The majority of those who live in Mexico City choose to rent their property rather than buy. This is for a huge number of reasons, including the fact that, until very recently, mortgages were practically unheard of in Mexico. Additionally, property prices, while relatively affordable in comparison to US and European prices, tend to be more than the typical Mexico City resident can afford.

Purchasing a property in any foreign country, or even just a different city, can be difficult, and incredibly stressful. With this in mind, if you’re planning on purchasing a property in Mexico City, we’d recommend reading through this page from Mexperience; it’s full of brilliant information and will be a massive help to you.

First things first when it comes to finding a brilliant rental property in Mexico City; set your budget, draw up your requirements and figure out exactly what you want from your new home. Once you’ve got this information set, we recommend diving in and doing some in-person research if at all possible; if you can’t get down to your chosen Mexico City area, then plentiful online research will have to do.

Your connection with local Real Estate professionals will prove invaluable, particularly if you’re moving in to the city from outside the area. Some agencies to look into include Century 21’s Mexican division – link, and Savills, who have offices in Mexico City and around the world – link.

Finding a home in Mexico City can be done in a number of ways, and of course at least consulting with a Real Estate Agent will be hugely beneficial to you in terms of local knowledge, liaising with Landlords and ensuring that you’re getting the best deal for your money – however, you can also find great properties through word of mouth, local advertisements (shop windows, cafes and the like), as well as online.

It isn’t essential to know the language before you move, but speaking at least a basic conversational level of Spanish will go a long way to working in your favour when dealing with local Landlords, Agents and those who might be able to give you a bit of extra assistance.
