About the Author
Even with social security benefits, pensions and several hundred thousand dollars in investment savings, the cost of living, particularly the cost of healthcare, is outpacing many Americans’ projected income in retirement. Perhaps you are working with even less. Are you questioning the prospect of a more meager retirement existence against the idea of moving to a less-expensive country? You are not alone. Mexico, with it’s proximity to home, tops the list of those countries Americans are flocking to. No one, regardless of their side of the aisle, can deny the demoralizing political shadow Americans are living under today. Are you asking yourself if you can or should just endure it, year-round, in the most important years of your life? If fear of your money not lasting and the daily news keeps you awake at night, Mexico could be your answer. Mexico is already the answer for at least a million other Americans living in Mexico full-time, and surely thousands more who live in Mexico part-time. Renting the right place in Mexico for an extended stay is the first step of exploring the option of Mexico, whether considering full-time expat life or just taking a break from the prevailing national climate to live there part-time. My book, “If Only I Had a Place” gives you a system to sustain your rental success at a high level for year after year, and explains why doing it right in your first “tour” is so critically important. A listing of rental concierges in many of the most popular areas can give you someone on the ground to preview places from a distance. The book is supported by the website, Ventanas Mexico, launched in 2014, which includes a book page with updates on renting and rental concierge contact listings. Ventanas Mexico website blogs describe first-hand experiences with healthcare, communication (learning Spanish), daily life in another culture, housing, and saving money while living the best of both worlds, all priorities for most aspiring expats. If a single woman over 50 with limited Spanish can move to Mexico part-time and slash yearly expenses by more than half, all while living well in both countries, so can you. This book will show you how to take the first step, renting a luxurious place in Mexico for less than you dreamed possible.
