If Only I Had a Place: An Aspiring Expat's Guide to Renting Luxuriously In Mexico

Location, location, location - just as profoundly true in Mexico

If you are thinking of moving either part- or full-time to Mexico, you will need to live there for longer than a vacation stay. As much as realtors would have you believe renting in Mexico is just like at home, it's not (for one thing, the industry is not nearly as regulated). 

This book takes you through the steps of how to secure a luxurious longer-term rental in Mexico for less than you ever imagined, year after year, and explains why where you live will be so important to your happiness as an expat.  

Book excerpt:

"Where you live and your experience while renting the first few years will form the basis of what you believe about Mexico and Mexicans. This isn’t a book about just “finding a place.”  It’s about developing a system that will serve you year after year, for either the first few years while deciding upon permanent residency or one you can employ in order to live in Mexico part-time, indefinitely."

Are you worried about renting a place online, only to find that it’s not as represented, or worse, non-existent? It does happen.

This book also provides a listing of reputable local rental concierges who can preview a property, house or apartment for you before you sign.

All know their areas well. Most have an online presence such as their own blogs and business websites.

They have been recruited and screened to give you precious peace of mind as you are deciding where you want to live as you test drive living in Mexico.

Have you already purchased the book?  Register to receive updates on rental concierge listings and new information on renting as it's uncovered. For example, the book will soon include concierges in Guadalajara, an area not yet represented in the book as well as a recent technique for finding the best, unadvertised apartments within a given building.

Make sure to write "Book Purchase" in your notes when you register and you will be sent only updates related to renting.
