Looking to retire in the next year or so and would like a bit of advice on options on buying a small house or condo within minutes walk from el centro /beaches. Also understanding most everyone on this site is s “homer” or better yet Zihuatanejo fan , your opinion on the same question regarding Manzanillo. Safety always a top concern.

Note enough information. Criteria wide open. As starters please put a desired price range. Then go to your profile and enable email which will put a small white envelope icon next to your name so folks can contact you directly thru email.

We really like Playa Blanca close to La Barra. With the new road it is a great location.

I don’t understand the need for private messaging to reply to a real estate question on a public forum intended to be informative to all. Sounds like some shady wheeling and dealing. I’d like to be able to approve of places and services recommended, which is the purpose of this website. If you have a property or a service to recommend why not do so here so other folks with similar questions can also benefit from the replies? You can private message the negotiations and confidential personal information. But going behind my back defeats the purpose of my website about activities and services that I can personally recommend.

GV, I know you're trying to sell your property in La Noria as you recently posted to another similar question, which is fine. It's not you that I am wary of abuse from.

Why don't you list with a local realtor? My wife's friend Lilia of L & O Bienes Raíces would be the perfect person to work with to help you sell your property.

Just for the record I do not own any property anywhere in Mexico. My wife owns a place near Buena Vista and it is not for sale.

Yes, I have contacted persons about long term rentals in La Naoria. It is only because the owners are good people and I have rented their property before and know it to be a good long term rental.

I'm super happy that connected with the owners that Gringo Viejo know because we secured the long term rental in La Noria. Going thru a realtor or pty management company would have meant, most likely, a higher monthly rental rate that we may not afford because we already tried to do that. And, if we didn't have this forum that would be much more difficult. Thanks ZihuaRob and everyone who answers our posts.

Believe it or not there are a lot of people who don't treat their life as an open book. They don't want to reveal publicly what they are able to pay, hence the ability to private email is important. On the flip side there are those who don't want to publicly advertise a property for sale as crazy as that seems.

I doubt there are those who are doing things "behind your back" but rater those that are very private.

Yes, it is your board and you can do as you like but I suggest if you don't want people "working behind your back" then eliminate the private email option. I find private email option a very useful tool.

That's precisely what realtors are for.

Our hats off to Tim Sullivan, also, who helped us for a few years looking at lots. Although we ultimately purchased through the owner on a re-sale, we never would have done so without his helping us locate the ideal area we love.

We bought a house almost 2 years ago from John Murphy of Mexico Beach Properties. We are on Playa la Ropa 300 meters from the water. We are full time here and couldn't be happier. We were able to find exactly what we were looking for at the price we wanted.

Let's hear it for transparency!!
