We understand the importance of accurately assessing the tax implications of your property transaction.

Your Listing Will Never Go Unnoticed
We intend to sell your home for the maximum price in the minimum amount of time. To a certain extent, achieving that goal is a numbers game. We need to create a richly detailed,
spectacular listing for your home, and then we need to put it in front of as many potential buyers as we possibly can.
Did you know that, as of 2013, nine out of every ten home buyers used the web to find their new home?
The number of buyers who use the Internet to find their next home is increasing daily. The traffic to online real estate marketplaces is skyrocketing. The power of the web is growing. And we have been able to successfully establish ourselves online so that we are able to tap into this steady stream of real estate shoppers.
“87% of recent buyers found their real estate agent to be a very useful information source. Online websites were perceived as the most useful information source at 93%. Buyers who use the web see a median of 10 houses, while buyers who don’t use the Internet see a median of 4 – 60% less!”
Your Listing Will be Advertised Everywhere
The web is now by far the most important advertising medium for real estate, and that’s becoming truer every day. Fortunately, we have managed to stay ahead of this trend, and have been continuously working to increase my web presence so that I can push listings to more places very quickly, putting properties in front of online buyers very effectively.
We subscribe to Point2 Agent, a web service that connects real estate professionals with one another and with the most important real estate advertisers on the web. This service allows us to advertise your listing on our website and on many other national and international real estate websites, along with 25+ of the busiest online real estate marketplaces, including Point2Homes.com, Kijiji, and Trovit. Thanks to this listing service, and to our numerous contacts, you will see that we belong to a powerful online network that can make a substantial difference in the exposure your property receives.
Multiple Search Platforms… Not only will we help your listing attract attention via “natural searches” sites like Google, Yahoo!, and MSN, but we will also place your listing in real estate-specific search sites such as Point2Homes.com, Kijiji,
and Trovit. In all, we have access to over 25 distinct listing marketplaces where your listing can be displayed.
Turning Browsers into Home Buyers… Today’s buyers expect lightning-fast responses to their emails and inquiries, they expect regular updates, and they expect an impressive, feature-rich website. Not only are our websites designed to attract and engage today’s buyers, it also includes numerous behind-the-scenes software elements that will help us to sell your home.
Better Information… We add as many high-quality photographs and as much richly detailed information to your listing as possible, so it will have a significantly better chance of attracting more buyers. In fact, 92% of online buyers think photos are very useful in listing ads, and 89% favor detailed information.
More Information to Attract Buyers
Better Listings… What’s the big deal? Well, it’s simple – many independent studies show that better listings with more photos attract more visitors, keep buyers looking at your home longer, and they generate more quality buyer leads.
More Photos… We understand the power of quality photographs and will include as many photos as possible to help attract attention to your listing.
More Information… Buyers want information. That’s only natural – they’re trying to make an informed decision about a major purchase. So instead of withholding information about your property, I deliver as much information as possible. Not only does this make your listing easier to find online, and help ensure that inquiries about your property are serious ones… it can also attract more attention from the buyers who find it.
More Personality… No one knows your home better than you do. That’s why, if you’re interested, we are able to set up a special area of your listing where you can add your own comments. You can even log in via your own password and access statistics on the visitors your listing is attracting.
More Power… Our listings always include Google mapping with satellite imagery, virtual tours, and many other features to showcase your property at the highest level of professionalism and technological elegance.
Our network… is set up to enable buyers to register their preferences and receive listings via email. That means that I may already have dozens of waiting buyers who are looking for the type of property you are offering. As soon as I have completed work on your listing, it will be instantly emailed to these matched buyers.
Our websites… (yes, we have two websites .com and .mx on two separate platforms) to get maximum exposure. We have the ability to send a notification directly to a cell phone as a text message if a prospect is interested in your property and inquiring about it. This means that we are able to respond with incredible speed to important potential buyers.
Our software… automatically places potential buyers in a communication program so that we are sure to maintain friendly contact with them, encouraging more repeat visits to our website and more repeat viewings of your listing.
Our advantage… is in the technological tools we use to present your property as effectively as possible and to have it discovered by as many potential buyers as possible. In modern markets, having a technological edge can make a dramatic impact. We have that edge, and we look forward to using it to your advantage.
Ongoing Communication and Support… we prioritize clear and regular communication with our clients. Throughout the selling process, we provide updates on market activity, buyer feedback, and any changes in the competitive landscape. Our team is readily available to address your questions, and concerns, and provide guidance whenever needed.
YOUR PROPERTY HAS SOLD AND CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER FOR ALL INVOLVED!
Let’s prepare for the closing… We will assist you by providing the necessary documentation to ensure a smooth closing process. To begin, we require proof of the 10% earnest money along with a signed offer from all parties involved, which we will keep for your records.
For the closing process in Mexico, where buyers have the freedom to choose their Notary (lawyers that are federally appointed), we will inform you about the designated Notary. We have established working relationships with various Notaries and will promptly initiate the necessary procedures by providing them with all the required paperwork related to your property. We will also collaborate with the Notary to determine if you are exempt from capital gains (ISR income tax) or if any tax payment is required. In the latter case, we will diligently work with the Notary to secure the most favorable tax rate in accordance with Mexican law.
We take care of calculating the severance pay for your maid or gardener, ensuring that the amount is accurately determined based on Mexican labor laws. We will guide you through the process and make certain that the severance is duly signed by your maid or gardener. Additionally, we will inquire with the new buyers if they wish to retain the services of your staff once they become the new owners of the property.
Example checklist of Sellers and Buyers documents…
To provide you with a clear understanding of the financial aspects, we generate closing statements that outline the exact amount you will receive for your property on the day of the closing.
To transfer the responsibility of utility bills from your name to the new buyer, we prepare the necessary documents for you to sign over the CFE electric bills, TELMEX phone bill, and SIMAPA water bill. This ensures that the utility bills will no longer be associated with your name once you are no longer the owner of the house.
If your property is part of a homeowner’s association (HOA), we will contact the board on your behalf to obtain a letter confirming the absence of any outstanding debts. This letter is a crucial requirement for the closing process.
Example of a Closing Checklist…
During the closing, we meticulously review and verify the accuracy of the deed, ensuring that all information is correct. Only after both parties have carefully examined and signed the deed do we proceed with the payment for your property, which will be deposited into the account specified by you, the seller.
As you have heard, we offer a comprehensive range of seller services tailored to meet your unique needs. From accurate home evaluations and strategic pricing to professional marketing, expert negotiation, and transaction management, we are committed to delivering exceptional results.
