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 …

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 …
