This year’s Vallarta Real Estate Fair had a record turnout with more exhibitors and attendees enjoying the fair than ever before. The highlights of the Fair were the two seminars that were heavily attended by locals, buyers and sellers. Lic. Jessica Riedesser spoke about Sellers and Buyer’s closing costs which afterword had a very lengthy question and answer period filled with important information for getting the most out of your real estate investment. Carl Timothy presented a Real Estate Market Report that compared 2014 to 2015 markets and reported on where the market is headed for the first quarter of 2016.
The second seminar was very important and we believe the first time ever when there was a panel of a Mexican, Canadian, and US accountants together in Puerto Vallarta answering questions about international tax issues with so much knowledge and clarity. What capital gains obligations are there in the US or Canada after you sell your home in Mexico? How can people qualify for capital gains tax exemptions on their Mexican residence? Do I have to disclose my Mexican bank accounts to the Canadian or the US governments? All of this and more information was professionally explained to the attendees by Cindy DuChateau, Cameron MacIntosh, and Pedro Covarrubias.
Exhibitors this year were varied service providers for the community from Home Staging to Dental Care. Honda Motor Cars, Chefs, Property Management, Mexico Tours, Mortgages, Attorneys, Tax Planning, Investment Banking, Escrow Companies, Insurance, Pilates, Interior Design and much, much more.
Another big highlight of the event was the Orquesta Escuela de Puerto Vallarta’s wonderful performance on the plaza. These local musicians were enjoyed by everyone and brought some lovely music to the event. The talented Colectivo Prana Entertainers were also a great treat to watch again this year as they entertained on stilts, juggling, and unicycles, all with the theme of Huichol Indians dressed in beautiful Huichol designs. There were even Chamanes there to cleanse the soul.
We look forward to seeing everyone again at the 2017 Vallarta Real Estate Fair. For information about the fair visit vallartarealestatefair.com.
