Through a series of detailed questions, we explore the size, budget, desired living style, and location that align with your vision for your dream property in the Lake Chapala area.

Once we have gathered this valuable information, we leverage our extensive resources to conduct a comprehensive property search on your behalf.

Immersive Area Exploration

Upon compiling a comprehensive list of properties that meet your criteria, we move forward with the next step by offering you the option to embark on a general tour of the enchanting Lake Chapala area. This step is particularly beneficial if you are not yet familiar with the region.

The tour begins in the picturesque town of San Antonio Tlayacapan and takes you on an exciting journey through the various highlights of the area, concluding at Jocotepec.

Making an offer on the property that is right for you

Once you have explored all the meticulously selected properties and discovered the one that perfectly aligns with your needs, we take the next step in the process. At Lake Chapala Realty, our dedicated team assumes the lead by initiating the crucial initial contact phase. Acting as your trusted representatives, we approach the seller on your behalf and present a meticulously crafted offer tailored to your preferences as a buyer.

Should you choose to include contingencies, such as a comprehensive property inspection or the requirement for your current home to be sold before proceeding, we ensure that these contingencies are thoughtfully incorporated into the offer. Our paramount concern is protecting your interests and providing you with complete peace of mind throughout the entire transaction.

Securing a fair market value for the property is our utmost priority. Drawing upon our extensive experience and market expertise, our accomplished team offers invaluable advice on the true worth of the property, empowering you to make an informed decision. Your satisfaction is of

the highest importance to us, and we are wholly dedicated to ensuring that you acquire an exceptional piece of real estate at a price that accurately reflects its value within the current market landscape.

During the negotiation process, the presence of a skilled intermediary is often pivotal. Engaging in direct negotiations between buyers and sellers can frequently result in unnecessary compromises and potential stalemates. At Lake Chapala Realty, our agents possess a wealth of experience in successfully negotiating offers. We are adept at navigating the intricate negotiation landscape, employing formal “Offers to Purchase” that establish precise payment terms, contingency requests, and well-defined deadlines. By employing this structured framework, we facilitate a smooth and efficient negotiation process.

We firmly believe that having our accomplished team represent you throughout the negotiation stage adds immense value by safeguarding your interests and ensuring the realization of a seamless and successful transaction. At Lake Chapala Realty, our unwavering commitment is to guide you through every step of your real estate journey, providing unparalleled support and making the entire experience remarkably seamless and stress-free.

10% Deposit and Contingencies: Securing Your Investment

After the buyer’s offer, along with all agreed-upon contingencies, has been accepted by the seller, our focus shifts to assist the buyer in selecting a reputable and certified property inspector in the area. The chosen home inspector conducts a comprehensive examination of the property. If the inspection reveals no major concerns and proves satisfactory to the buyer, we promptly notify the seller that the buyer will waive the inspection and proceed with the property purchase. At this stage, the buyer is required to provide a 10% deposit of the purchase price within 5 business days. This deposit serves as a substantial commitment, symbolizing that the property is now “UNDER CONTRACT,” effectively removing it from the market. The seller is no longer able to accept any additional offers on the property, even if they exceed the current offer in value.

Subsequently, Lake Chapala Realty transfers all necessary paperwork to the closing coordinator, who handles the due diligence process for the closing with meticulous care. Throughout this stage, our team remains steadfast in representing your best interests, ensuring a seamless closing process. It is important to emphasize that the seller will not receive the funds until the deed has been signed in the presence of the buyer’s chosen Notary. This prudent approach safeguards your investment and guarantees a secure transaction.

The Closing

In Mexico, the transfer of property, legal documentation, and Mexican deeds, better known as “Escritura” is overseen by certified Mexican Notaries appointed by the government. As a buyer, you have the freedom to choose the Notary you prefer.

At Lake Chapala Realty, we understand the importance of a smooth and efficient closing process. With our extensive experience and a track record of successful closings, we possess comprehensive knowledge of every aspect involved, providing unwavering support at every step. Our dedicated closing coordinator works closely with the selected Notary, sellers, and all parties involved to ensure a seamless and stress-free closing experience. Here are the key elements of our closing coordination services:

Collaboration with the Notary

We work directly with the Notary to facilitate a thorough examination of the property. The Notary’s responsibilities include reviewing the property’s history, obtaining certificates to confirm the absence of liens or debts from the public registry, verifying accurate measurements, and even requesting a no-debt certificate from the homeowners’ association (HOA) if the property is located in a gated community. In Mexico, the Notary assumes liability, eliminating the need for title insurance.

Clear and Transparent Closing Statements

We provide you with precise closing statements that offer a transparent breakdown of the exact amount paid for the property, including any prorations received from the seller. These comprehensive statements ensure clarity and enable you to understand the financial aspects of the purchase.

Smooth Utility Bill Transfers

Our team handles the necessary paperwork to transfer ownership of utility bills, including CFE electric bills, TELMEX phone bills, and SIMAPA water bills, from the seller to you as the buyer. This seamless process guarantees a smooth transition of utility accounts into your name, and we personally take care of these arrangements at the local utility offices.

Reassurance with Severance Letters

If the seller employs individuals such as maids or gardeners, we obtain severance letters to provide you with peace of mind. These letters confirm that the previous staff members have received their entitlements, ensuring you are not held liable for any future severance payments.

HOA Compliance

For properties within an HOA, we communicate with the board to obtain a no-debt letter required for closing. This letter assures you that the seller has settled all outstanding dues associated with the property, offering reassurance and a smooth transition of ownership.

Diligent Deed Verification

During the closing process, we meticulously review and verify the accuracy of the deed’s information before all parties sign it. This thorough examination ensures that all essential details are correct. Once the deed is signed, we release the funds to the seller, completing the transaction.

At Lake Chapala Realty, we are committed to ensuring a seamless and successful closing process for our clients. With our expertise and attention to detail, you can trust us to handle all aspects of the closing coordination, safeguarding your interests and facilitating a smooth transition of ownership.
