How do I find a place to live in Ajijic?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Ajijic involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a small apartment to a large house, depending on your needs and financial situation. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Ajijic to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Some areas may be closer to the town center, while others may be more residential or closer to the lake. Once you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, you can start your search. There are several online platforms where you can find listings for rentals and properties for sale in Ajijic, such as Point2Homes, Realtor.com, and Vrbo. These websites allow you to filter your search based on your preferences and view photos and details of the properties. In addition to online searches, you can also contact local real estate agents in Ajijic. They can provide you with listings that match your criteria and arrange viewings. They can also guide you through the process of renting or buying a property in Mexico, which can be particularly helpful if you're not familiar with the local real estate market and regulations. Another option is to visit Ajijic and stay in a hotel or vacation rental for a short period. This will give you the opportunity to explore the town, visit different neighborhoods, and potentially view properties in person. You can also speak to locals and expats who can provide valuable insights and recommendations. Finally, once you've found a property you're interested in, you'll need to negotiate the terms of the lease or sale, review the contract, and make the necessary payments. If you're buying a property, you'll also need to handle the legal paperwork, which may require the assistance of a lawyer. Remember, finding a place to live in a new town or country can take time, so it's important to be patient and thorough in your search," remarked one foreigner who made the move to Ajijic.
