Lemuria, the next project to be developed at Garza Blanca South

In our past newsletter, we talked about Lemuria Residences presales starting in December. They will be the next residential condominiums to be developed as part of the Garza Blanca South Master Plan, which comprises a development of 1,927 acres, of which only 8% will be developed, divided into two phases.   The first phase of the development will be called “Garza Blanca South” comprised of 1,048 acres, of which only 79 acres will be urbanized; the remaining 969 acres will be preserved as an ecological reserve for hiking and exploration. The second phase, which runs along Los Arcos will be called “Garza Blanca Los Arcos”, and will include the remaining 879 acres for a development that is currently in blueprints.      The Garza Blanca South Master Plan was designed by Gensler, a prestigious international architecture and urban planning firm, together with the efforts of our internal architecture and interior design department. It will take seven years to complete with a total investment of approximately $500 million USD.  The Master Plan consists of 1,328 keys between beach hotels Villas de Montaña, La Garzetta hotel, Echoes Hotel, a boutique hotel, 2 condominium developments, single-family residences, a 23,000 square-foot spa, a treehouse development, another boutique hotel with panoramic views of the mountains, and Tierraluna.  Construction of Tierraluna began 18 months ago and is scheduled …

Is Now the Right Time?

It’s an important question. If you are considering refinancing your home to purchase property in Mexico, there are several factors influencing whether it is the right time to buy. These factors include your own financial circumstances, time of year, and also what the larger real estate market is doing.   What can buyers expect if they purchase property right now? Real estate is a great way to protect your assets. Buying investment property could be your best option, especially during times like these when the economy is suffering. All circumstances point to this scenario.    Despite the fact that the pandemic has slowed things down everywhere, there has been an uptick in real estate inquiries. It seems that real estate is standing up as the number one option to invest, since the stock exchange is subject to market volatility.   The best time to buy is when borrowers can take advantage of low-interest loans. Now that interest rates are at the very bottom, more people are thinking about getting a really good buy. It is the perfect time to get a second mortgage on your home to buy your dream vacation residence in paradise. It is also the most convenient and solid investment there can be. If you make a …

The Benefits of Investing in Real Estate

In the current volatile market, investing in real estate is one of the most secure investments.    After the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak as a pandemic, concerns that the virus would disrupt global businesses caused investor faith to plummet and world markets crashed to an all-time low.   While stocks are a well-known investment option, buying real estate is also a great investment, which under the right circumstances may yield better returns. Throughout history investing in real estate has been the best way to guarantee your patrimony. It is something that can stay in your family and that they can enjoy for years to come.   Real estate and stocks have different risks and opportunities. The decision whether to invest stocks or in real estate is a personal choice that depends on your investment style and goals.     While real estate prices may be affected by other economic factors, their value doesn’t fluctuate as sharp and suddenly as with stocks and has the potential for substantial appreciation. As the property’s value goes up, your real estate can be leveraged making it possible for you to expand your holdings.  Real estate is an appealing option for many prospective investors because it is a …

On average, a house offers you more privacy than a condominium. However, many houses in Puerto Vallarta have been built right next door to the neighbor’s house, so it may not offer that much more privacy than a condominium. If you do have …

Act Now to Snap Up Your Luxury Vacation Home!

Spread over 88 acres of lush tropical terrain, Garza Blanca Preserve is home to the award-winning Garza Blanca resort and Five Diamond Hotel Mousai Puerto Vallarta.  It seems that the cold and snowy weather during this winter has been making people realize that purchasing a second home in beautiful Puerto Vallarta is a great idea! There are still opportunities available to purchase either a fully deeded ownership or a fractional ownership so that you can combine residential ownership lifestyles with luxury vacation experiences.   Some people prefer a deeded full ownership property since they like the idea of traveling multiple times per year or prefer to spend the winter months in a sunny destination while it is snowing back home. For others, a deeded fractional ownership is ideal since they can plan to spend just one month of the year in their beautiful residence, but for a fraction of the price than if they owned the residence outright.   Right now, we have our last 9 beachfront units available for sale starting from $823,000 USD. We also have only 3 Panorama winter fractional ownership units left starting at just $200,000 USD for an amazing $1.6 …

Fractional Versus Full Ownership

Imagine 5-star luxury combined with the privacy of your own private residence on the beach.   If you are looking for more than just a vacation, we have released 14 strategically chosen residences available for full ownership and 3 fractional residences.  Full Ownership  As an owner of one of our full-ownership residences, you can enjoy your luxury residence as much as you want with the added flexibility of enlisting your property with our rental program.  Our Five Star boutique hotel services ensure that no matter the length of time you are gone, your residence will always be in tiptop shape for your return.  Fractional Ownership  If you want to enjoy the benefits of glamorous real estate ownership without the full commitment, residences in the fractional ownership program are divided into fractions of 1/12 (4 weeks) per year, for life. Fractional ownership is the shared ownership of a residence with partner owners in the same unit. Every share in fractional ownership is secured by a separate deed for each purchased residence.  Upon request, Garza Blanca will rent your fractional residence when you are not using it. Income generated can be used to …
