Buying a home or condo in Mexico is similar to buying property in the United States. However, there are two key differences that you will see in Mexico. First, foreigners can buy property in Mexico, but the title to the house is held in a renewable bank-held trust, called a fideicomiso. Second, buyers in Mexico can expect to pay an additional 2 percent acquisition tax during the closing for the property.
