Here in this remote part of Mexico at the end of the Baja Peninsula is where breath taking Los Cabos awaits and where you can enjoy some of the best gastronomy in Latin America. From little hole-in-the-wall restaurants to those boasting famous Michelin Star Chefs such as seven-star Martin Berasategui and two-star Sydney Schutte and Jean Georges; Los Cabos culinary talents continue to surprise and enrich our palates.
In the eyes of the world, Los Cabos has been an international holiday destination for no more than 20 years or so, however, the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula has been on the map for much longer than that.
I vividly remember the first time I heard about La Sierra de La Laguna, the mountain range located between Los Cabos and La Paz. My friend Carlos, 5th generation born and raised in Baja California Sur, shared with me tales of incredible experiences he had with friends and family in this special place. The stories varied from goblins and treasures hidden by pirates to wonderful waterfalls of crystalline waters and endemic gigantic trees that exist only in this region.
Plastic waste is a serious problem that has been around for years, and far from solving this problem, we just turn our heads the other way and let it get bigger and bigger. Unfortunately, the ocean suffers the worst part of this problem.
Imagine a place where the weather is perfect, the food delicious, the neighbors are friendly, vast undeveloped land surrounded by ocean, desert, tropical palm trees and not so distant mountains. A place where time seems to slow down.
Most homes in Los Cabos are sold furnished or partially furnished. A small percentage of homes do not include the furniture, and this will be stated on the listing agreement. If the house is to be sold furnished, the seller should make a list of exclusions for items that are not part of the purchase.
I hear it all the time. People start a renovation just to sell their home. I am all about change, but when it comes to renovations of your home it is best to form a plan, compose a budget and stick to them. One project inevitably leads to another and, before you know it, the budget is blown, and that expensive renovation may not have made the intended impact on a potential buyer.
The biggest thing I try to stress to my sellers is to DE-CLUTTER all spaces. If an item is not used every day put it away neatly in a closet. The kitchen and bathrooms should be as clean and tidy as possible. It is not possible to use 50 different types of spices every day so stash them in a cupboard.
After the preliminary agreement has been signed, the closing agent (broker, attorney or real estate professional) will assist in the purchase process. Property title search, appraisals, finance approval, visual inspections, etc. are usually performed before the closing date.
