Is It Just An Itch Or Something More

For the past 5 years or so, we have been talking and dreaming about the possibility of moving. This conversation usually starts with the sighting of the first snowflake and ends with the first tulip bloom. We call this our winter itch! Anytime we wander away from home, out of curiosity, we purchase a local paper and check out the real estate listings. On Sunday afternoons, we surf the web looking at international real estate. If you are going to dream, dream big!

We are content with our life in the Yucatan. We are wondering out loud if this feeling could last? Could we be happy here year round? Is this just vacation bliss? What about family? What about friends? If we actually live here, what would we do all day? Would we be bored in 6 months? When the novelty wears off, would we find ourselves full of regret? There is much to think about and to learn. We start by riding our bikes up and down the streets of our neighborhood with pen and paper in hand; making note of homes for sale. In talking with the expat community, we are enlightened by true experiences on the process of buying real estate in Mexico.
Research via the computer proves to be resourceful and confusing! Wanting to make an informed decision, we call on the houses of interest and set up appointments for viewing. Oh yes, this is definitely more than an itch..............
