I’ve been hearing a lot of Realtors thanking Canadian interest in real estate for helping them get through the season here in Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit. Its been a tough one for many Realtors, and it seems in some case the only action taking place has been with Canadian buyers. This shows in the number of visits to MLSVallarta.com where there are nearly just as many Canadians now visiting the site as Americans. There are still more Americans, but Canadians show just 10% less visits for March, 2010. Looking back, last year at this time Canadians had 20% less visits than Americans. In 2008 its was 30% less visits and in 2007 Canadians had 55% less visits! What a difference a strong dollar and real estate market can make!
I’m not going to be blogging for a few weeks as I’ll be out of Vallarta and out of Internet reach for the most of it.
