Never Rent in Mexico BEFORE Asking These Questions

The rental process in Mexico can be a bit frustrating and confusing. And many expats are left with long-term rentals they don’t love because they didn’t know what questions to ask.

In this video, I share with you the top questions you should ask before renting a house in Mexico. And a brief explanation of each one.

You’ll learn to ask questions like:

  • What’s Included?
  • Nuances about utilities included and what a lot of people don’t know
  • Why you should NEVER rent a house before seeing it in person
  • How to ensure you’ll have good internet
  • Why hire a rental agent?
  • And so much more!
