Aloha, I wrote: "Richard and Long Time Res, are the only two posters, that I know, posting on this thread that are/have been involved, in San Carlos Real Estate"

You wrote :"bombero~we do not know each other,nor do you know what my experience with buying/selling real estate has been, except for what I have shared above. so to say that there are only 2 people posting that have a clue is a little presumptuous and insulting on your part"

You may not need my help in house hunting, but you could use some help in "comprehension", perhaps studies of the English language and interpretation.

........and yes, you do not know me, but if I ever feel the need to have grumpy friend......I'll look you up.

Seems to me that School Teacher Bombero is more interested in correcting and criticizing spelling and grammar than what the poster means. Get over it Professor.

Jimmy, sure sorry that is the way you perceived my posts. I would rather be a learner, than a teacher in many cases. And this is one of them. Thanks for making me aware of this.

The information in the Remax Letter, is accurate. They give you the sales for the quarter, and the prices paid. They can not make up the numbers. The banking laws have made it very difficult to lie anymore. There has to be proof of all moneys spent. Bombero, you have lived here for over three decades, and have a good knowledge of how things go in San Carlos. I respect you opinion.
Bullshipper, if a property is listed with a real estate company in San Carlos, then there is an escritura in the listing agents possession. Otherwise, there would be no listing. It is required. Also, the agents make sure that it is the current escirtuura on the property at the registro publico. No guessing work there. They also make sure that there are no leans not he property that they are listing.

This was not the case in 2 of the 4 properties I wanted to make offers on. On the Solimar condo I did buy, I found out a week before closing that the seller did not have escrituras or a bank trust in his name. Everything was still in the previous owners name, and that person had passed away, leaving a power of attorney. The power of attorney sent to me was not complete, etc, etc, so I would disagree with your comments due to 1st hand recent experience.
If I was not a Mexican citizen, and did not have a very competent notary, the deal would have been impossible to close, and the real estate agent did not "mention" this for months.

Bullshipper, yours is most definitely a case that illustrates my main underlying point: Use an experienced,competent and bilingual broker with a clean and proven track record where every buying client has gotten their trust or deed and none have lost a single peso! And yes, there are a few such in San Carlos. Just ask around.

longtimeresident,why do you always write with such authority? and your facts are usually dis-puteable. as seen on this thread. do you not feel an accountability for your words and intent? maybe you should write IMHO or something. there are newbies that read this and may believe all you write. nothing is written in stone here. for every fact,there is somebody that had a totally different experience.

It would appear that the realtors here have no full disclosure forms, or laws, like we have in the states requiring sellers to provide all the paperwork and information needed to do property transactions. Follow this with a lack of title companies, and you will find that the "rules" are constantly changing, which is common to this country in all other forms of business also.I can only imagine how difficult it must be for the realtors to have to try to memorize all the details and answer questions on when there are over 900 listings in this area with no building or zoning laws to eliminate the variables. It took me 3 months just to find out what the true monthly HOA dues at Marina Real, and it turned out they were 3x what was advertised, this, on a buiilding that has been operating for 20 years.
So everyone's different experience and opinion makes for great fodder on the forums, even for those of us that have a long experience in Mexico and are completely bilingual.
So yes, get yourself a good notary to protect your investment with legal backup, buy cheap enough so that you will not lose too much when you sell, and have a great time in the meantime.

O.K. ...enough. Someone has to tell the truth. Baca is a member of the San Carlos "Family". Talk to somebody that has dealt with him.He does not use his knowledge to enhance his clients position. He has some kind of a god-given right to screw gringos. Beware!

Richard Baca, is a person involved in real estate here and in the U.S. for many years. Long Time Resident is a person who had been here for 30+ years, she had also been involved in real estate and banking for most of these years. Do you know who long time resident is? She speaks with authority, because she has the experience to do so, and many people here in SC are thankful for the knowledge and assistance on many many occasions. You, on the other hand are in the shadows, I do not know who aloha is, therefore who are you to speak with the tone of authority? Why would you accuse LTR for the speck in your eye?

Any "handle" outside of those of us who use our real names , is obviously anonymous , so whilst John may know LTR and their qualifications , many of us do not.

Anonymous comments are just that ~ anonymous 

You can take 'em or leave 'em  :)

Of course does not only apply to LTR....

Bullshipper, we would love to know who your agent was. The broker is held responsable for their agents. Most of the brokers in San Carlos, take this very seriously, and work very hard to ensure that the transfer of rights is done correctly. The offices that I know are members of the MLS, make is mandatory for a copy of the escritura, before they take a listing. I am sorry that you were involved with someone who didn't do this. It is not the norm anymore. Back in the day, many things were done on the sly, but since Sonora requires that everyone have a Real Estate License to do business here, the laws have changed, and so has the integrity of the business. I will not mention names, but some have not kept their license current.

Ian, no offense taken. Richard Baca has called me by name many times, so I am surprised that it is not common knowledge. Have a great holiday season, I know I will.

Ian, I have respect for anonymity, and ones right to invoke it. With it, in my opinion, comes responsibility to not use it with impunity, or to have the ability to slander or abase others whilst (I like that) stealthing.

 I have lived here long enough to know whose word to respect and ignore.I do not post to gain anybodys approval. I know who all the players on this forum are. and I know their reputations in the community etc etc. I have interacted with some. really? that I choose to remain 'anonymous',and that you choose to use your name, are both personal issues.its a forum. read by stalkers,creeps,naysayers,hackers. its the tech age. if you want to put your personal history on line to prove a point go for it. I read and post to gather info. and I am amused at those that want to be respected for their word when their reputation proceeds them. you jm and ian,may feel confident in accepting some of the posters advice. I do not, and I have the right to express my opinion,just as they express theirs with such authority. take it or leave it.  salud~
