When we asked expats in Mexico if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...

"Yes, foreigners are allowed to own property in Mexico. The Mexican Constitution guarantees the right of foreigners to own property in Mexico, as long as certain restrictions are followed. Foreigners are not allowed to own property within a restricted zone, which is within 100 kilometers of the border and 50 kilometers of the coastline. However, foreigners can own property in this zone through a bank trust, known as a fideicomiso. This trust is administered by a Mexican bank and allows the foreign owner to have full use and control of the property," said another in Mexico.
