There are a variety of options for financing your real estate purchase in Mexico. Here are the most common:
- A) USD mortgage starting at 9% (most properties in Mexico are sold in USD, can be Canadian and get a USD mortgage). Typically want to see 40% down, 60% mortgaged. If you put more down, your rate may be lowered. Put less down and interest rate goes up. Credit score should be 680 or higher.
- B) Mexican peso loan starting at around 10%
- C) Developer or owner financing: varies per development / owner. Ranges from 6% interest and 40% down, 60% carried for up to 4 years at libor + 5% (around 9-10%). Typically no application fees, no pre-payment penalties. The best deals are obtained by cash buyers since owners selling now are selling because they need the money.
- Get a Home Equity Line of Credit from a residence you own in your home country. This typically gives you the lowest rates and fees.
