"Commercial Property, Waiting for Development"
Commercial Property, Waiting for Development Waiting for a savvy developer who can develop my 55 hectares of beautiful land, that i have just listed in Central Mexico. When I get a large parcel that has been a family for decades it is exciting. Virgin land never been touched really with trees over a hundred years old, an old gold mine, a dried up river, a great southeast slope. It is a set up for an experienced developer to make it happen. The parcel varies from commercial, fronting the main road, to residential moving away from the road and up the slope. I like to walk the land with the owner and get a feel for the topography and learn anything else about the trees, the vegetation and the run of the rain water. Selling Mexico real estate is not just about having inventory with you. It involves the history of the people, the area and what could the use be going forward, to offer to the community and bring a valuable investment to the buyer. In this particular scenario, I see an elegant, semi off-the-grid, housing community of affordable, one story homes, harvesting rain water, catching the sun optimally to keep heat and cooling constant, building with vernacular of the area in white stone. The elegance of a stone mostly indigenous to this area in Central Mexico can create long lasting, romantic structures in contemporary flare or historic lines, both work well. The point is international living and building a retirement dream home can be very rewarding in this part of Mexico. The weather shines, warm and sunny in the day, and cool at night. The dry desert and mountain terrain breathes big skies in all directions. If ever there was a place to honor the expansiveness of life, this is it. No tumble weeds like Montana but the open vistas are just as magnificent. The lure of the Wild West leaving the big city stress behind. A climate like that of Provence and France where lavender, rosemary and sunflowers flourish. Large parcels can be called commercial property for sale really only because of size. It does not necessarily dictate a large sprawling building. Planning housing environments is very much a commercial endeavor. It is my vision that Mineral de Pozos grow and grow well and responsibly. Housing in an affordable range for one or two people seems to be the sweet spot under $225Kusd. This is very do-able in Mexico. And the end product can be spectacular. Nowhere else can a person build a romantic stone house for that price with 50% of the American population single and the boomers retiring and downsizing, the numbers work with 25 hectares with 25 homes yields 2.2 acres per house with a 1200 sq.ft home for under $225K usd. The fresh air, beautiful views, and gardening possibilities are endless. As a developer, providing a quality life, respecting the landscape and environment and making a return between 15-20% seems like a win-win scenario.
