An Expat Talks about Moving to Manzanillo, Mexico

Submitted by CandyKing

Comments Print

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Manzanillo

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

Because we are on the beach, things of silver or other metals rust. Also art work, if you want to have it for other generations, is difficult to preserve.

There are not many things that are not available here, but electronics are expensive, so I would bring computers.(Also they are in the language of your choice)

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Contact me or someone here about what to bring or not.

Choosing a neighborhood and finding a home I would suggest a qualified real estate professional.

We have an MLS group in the city. Preferably chose one of those realtors.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

We live in a house on the beach. Many ex-pats live in houses and condos on or close to the beach.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

We found our neighborhood and housing with a realtor.

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

The average 3 bedroom condo on the beach is under 200,000.00 USD at this time.

There are houses in gated communities from 140,000.00 USD to 2.5 million, depending on your taste.
