According to data released by INEGI, in the last five years, the largest foreign population that entered the state is from the United States (17.7k) and Canada (163 people). Among the reasons for which they immigrate to the country are family first, work second, legal third, personal fourth, and lastly economic and educational.

Regarding family reasons, it is because most of them already have family residing in the State for a long time.

Now, in this article, we will talk about the areas that the population prefers and positions as the best places to live in Oaxaca.

Every year the famous “Tejate Fair” takes place in the town, which attracts hundreds of locals and foreigners to taste the exquisite drink. Definitely a highly demanded place to live due to the tranquility it offers.

Colonia Reforma

On this site there are houses of modern and sophisticated style. An excellent option to live, since it is located near the historic center.


The iconic Jalatlaco neighborhood, ranked as the most beautiful in the city, is undoubtedly a place that will leave you amazed. Walking through its cobblestone streets and seeing its quarry and adobe buildings transport you to colonial times. Its beautiful facades decorated with murals made by local and national artists invite you to take thousands of photographs. It is a quiet and central place, full of colors, traditions and culture. Ideal for those who love to be in contact with traditions and who enjoy being outside the bustle of the city.

Every time there are more foreigners who want to acquire properties in Mexico, either to live or to invest. Well, if you are foreigner and your intention is to buy real estate in the country, here is important information you must know and take into account.

Fraction I of the Article 27 of the Mexican Constitution stipulates that only Mexican people, either by birth or naturalization and the Mexican societies, will be able to acquire de dominion of lands and get the license for the exploration and exploitation of mines and waters in Mexican territory.  However, the State will be able to grant foreigners the same right as long as they agree in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores) by considering themselves as Mexican Nationals and in waiving to appeal the protection of the Government of their country of origin, under the sentence, in case of breaking the covenant, all rights to such property shall be reverted to the Nation.


A foreign individual or company may directly own land in Mexico except in what is described by Article 27 of the Mexican Constitution as the “restricted zone.” A zone within one hundred kilometers (sixty-one miles) of the international border and fifty kilometers (thirty-one miles) of the seacoast.

Foreign individuals or companies and Mexican companies 100% owned by foreigners may purchase of real estate for residential purposes within this “restricted zone” has to be through a trust fund for fifty years. In this kind of trust fund the bank will retain the property title but the foreigner is the beneficiary and may use and enjoy such premises and may sell or even inherit the rights to it. However, all operations regarding the property must be notified and approved by the bank.

In this order of ideas, the nationals of those countries with which Mexico does not maintain diplomatic relations and who intend to acquire real estate outside the restricted zone, must present to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs a document in which they agree to the provisions of section I of article 27 of the Constitution to acquire real estate outside the restricted zone and obtain the corresponding permit from this agency, in accordance with the first paragraph of article 10-A of the Foreign Investment Law.In case of doubt if the property is inside or outside the restricted area, the SRE must consult the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI).

The acquisition may be done personally or through an agent with representation (power of attorney valid according to Mexican laws).

Real Estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor it can be carried away. Purchased with common sense and, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.

  • Franklin D. Roosevelt

At present, the Real Estate sector is one of the biggest supports of the Mexican economy. Every time, more and more people are betting on investing in it. There are many advantages it brings: possess a high capital gain, a safe return on investment, the support to the local economy and stability and you will find multiples options of properties.

So, if you are thinking in investing in Real Estate, we present you here some aspects to consider, so that in this way your first investment is carried out in the best possible way.

1.- Set your budget.

This is the most important aspect, since it is which will define the property you will have access to, whereby, if you think your budget is not enough yet, we recommend you to wait and save up more until you get a considerable quantity.

2.- Be patience, contemplate the time.

if your idea is to sell your property you should know this will take time. To generate capital gain, you have to wait for some years, it value will increase and then, it will be the appropriate moment to sell it.

3.- Look over the details with maximum security. 

When acquiring a property, make sure all the documents are in order, free of lien, registered in the public registry, etc. This will get you out of trouble in the future.

4.- Invest in presale.

The most attractive option to invest, since when you acquire a property in presale (in an early stage of construction) you will pay a lower price, giving you the opportunity to generate a greater capital gain when the construction concluded. For that, it is preferable to do research about the developer who offers the property in order to make sure about the reliability of the purchase.

5.- Make of the “location, location, location”.

The location of the property is essential; however, it also depends on the use you want for the estate. If it is a commercial local, the ideal is that it is located in ideally, it should be in an area with a large flow of people. On the other hand, if your desire is to sell a house for a family with kids, maybe, the most viable will be a calm zone with nearby schools and parks.

6.- Consider to buy for remodeling and selling.

This can be an unattractive option, nevertheless, experts point out you can get even a 30% of utilities.

7.- Invest to rent in a higher price.

As its name indicates, you can purchase a property to rent it later, for that, take into account that maybe you will have to invest a little bit more to make some adjustments to increase its value.

Well, these are the most relevant points when investing in Real Estate. Remember to get organize everything and take your process from the hand of experts on the subject, as well as choose the option that best suits with your budget.
