How This Website Works
Here’s the process. When a real estate agent works with a seller and receives a signed agreement to list their home on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), the agent obtains the property’s details and arranges a photo shoot. Once the data and photos are inputted into the MLS system, the property is then syndicated to all MLS member websites offering a homes database like this one.
Our MLS rules dictate all listed properties be first vetted to ensure all pertinent documentation is in order and correct. In other words, all properties you see listed here have their paperwork in order and are legally ready to change hands.
Properties listed are active listings; however, there’s always a chance a property listed has received an offer. The best way to know is contact me right away when you see a home you like. I can check with the listing agent to verify the current status of the property.
My name is Jamie Coates, Owner and Broker of Choice Realty Services, a Buyer’s Agency, and you can call or text me direct at +52-322-146-4664.
“ When I came to Mexico I knew that one day I would be looking to purchase a home. I also realized that the process of buying a home was very different than in Canada or the United States. I had read many things about purchasing property in English- Mexican newspapers etc, but seemed none the wiser. When the time came, I approached Jamie Coates to help me buy a home. I had many many questions, which Jamie capably answered, and assured me that the process at times was slow, but was not that onerous, if you were aware of the proper procedures, which Jamie was. I have no hesitation in recommending Jamie to be your agent if you are wishing to purchase a home. “
“ Jamie Coates was recommended to us from friends and I, in turn, feel extremely comfortable recommending him as a perfect agent to assist anyone in their search for real estate in Puerto Vallarta. Once we made a decision to purchase, Jamie was very open to exploring all areas and options. He was patient in exposing us to different locations and explaining all we needed to know about making a purchase in Mexico. Jamie is not a high pressure sales person. We felt great comfort in his honesty and commitment to us. Jamie was an integral part of making what could have been a stressful experience very exciting and pleasant. “
“ I have dealt with quite a few real estate agents over the years on four different continents. Jamie is by far one of the best I have worked with. He kept the process rolling smoothly and was honest and upfront in his communications. He represented my interests and was always on my side during the process. He has a good understanding of the local market and Mexican real estate processes. I enjoyed working together with him and would not hesitate to use his services again. “
“ Jamie makes a very good buyers agent. He is a long term resident of Puerto Vallarta and knows the territory well. He not only found the house that I bought in Bucerias, but also negotiated a very good price for me! “
“ Jamie Coates represented my living desires when I was seeking a one bedroom condo south of Rio Cuale, right in a Mexican neighborhood, not a touristy locale. We went to several places and came back to my current home, thought and discussed. I bought it once a bid was secured. Jamie helped me diligently with the paperwork of each step for a first time buyer. He knew the process forward and back. There was plenty of faxing and securing money from the USA, but he guided me through it all with courtesy and intelligence. I would recommend him and already have to quite a number of friends looking for a place of their own in Puerto Vallarta Paraiso. “
Current buyers - June 2019
Our local MLS board produces a variety of property data information along with a limited demographic insight of common buyer characteristics. For example, so far this year condos are the most common property purchase in the Puerto Vallarta/Rivera Nayarit area where current data shows condos have outsold houses 3 to 1. That two thirds of current buyers purchased for a combination of investment and/or vacation usage for which condos make great choices. Not only are they generally more affordable but their ease of use facilitates those who are not here year round as they can be easily locked up and the HOA maintains the premises. A third of all purchasers paid less than $200,000 and a quarter of all buyers own multiple Mexican properties. While most people purchase with cash, that is, no financing, over 20% of buyers this year used some type of financing. See more Market Insights at the Buyers Guide above.
