Current Mortgage Rates in Mexico

Most real estate deals in Mexico are made with cash and obtaining a mortgage in Mexico, regardless of the rate, as a non-citizen can be very difficult. If you hear about a company offering Mexican mortgages to Americans and non-Mexican citizens you should be cautious about their fees and timelines.
