A good friend of mine always said “Keep the main thing, the main thing.”, and that issue seems to come up often. Our main thing is really very simple – To provide beachfront community living that is affordable to the masses rather than to just a small percentage of the population. We accomplish this as a result of acquiring a large amount of beachfront and beach view property for a relatively low price and we are passing our savings on to our resident owners. There are several things that came into play in order for this to actually happen and you may have read about them here before, but it is the first time for some of you, so….
First, our property is in Mexico. Things are just less expensive in Mexico, including real estate. Second, Rancho Costa Verde is “Off Grid” and off grid real estate is less expensive…for now anyway, but that’s a topic for a later discussion. However, current advances in green and other technology have added value to this property. You can have all the conveniences of a new home in the US and be off grid on a beautiful beach in Mexico.
BUT WE HAVE BYPRODUCTS – Byproducts that we didn’t even realize when we were thinking of our “main thing”…and they are pretty important – the news thinks so and so do we.
Many individuals, companies and real estate developments in Mexico as well as in the US have been affected by the state of the economy. As a matter of fact, most traditional methods of financing are not available to real estate developments like Rancho Costa Verde. But our activity of selling and building 360 plus homes creates a fair amount of economic activity – on both sides of the border. We are responsible for creating employment on the US side for graphic designers, printers, accountants, real estate agents, attorneys and the list goes on. And on. We create business for advertising agencies, financial institutions, radio stations, newspapers…. In Mexico, we create jobs for engineering firms, architects, construction workers, attorneys, restaurants and some of them read this blog… and you know who you are. We see exponential effects in employment and overall economic activity on both sides of the border, and I believe we could do a lot more.
As I mentioned yesterday, in so many words, more economic activity and employment equates to less incentives for illegal immigration and crime – on both sides of the border. When we hear of making bigger fences, hiring more border patrol agents and spending hundreds of millions to create jobs that will earn about the same, while organizations like ours are not even on the radar just makes us shake our heads. Is there someone in Washington out there? ( I know there is, I run the analytics on this site constantly…)
