Appreciating A Vacation Rental

May 15, 2008
This weekend, you pack your family up into the family suburban, and you happily head to a local lake in the country. You rented a cabin for the weekend by this pristine lake known for its fishing and boating. The problem is that this is a vacation rental you have never seen. Since the majority of the population is trusting, you happened to believe the ad that made promises of the perfect family weekend. However, when you get to this property, you discover that the huge lake is more like a fish pond, and while there are indeed fish, the true owners of the property would probably not appreciate you dining on their goldfish.

What happened here? Miscommunication? Did you get the wrong address?

Unfortunately, if this happened to you, you were probably the victim of a scam. Perhaps losing the money is not the worse part of being a victim of fraud, but the fact that you are left feeling betrayed and hurt as is any victim. While this could happen to anyone in your hometown, this can also be taken to a larger region.

In the past years, many people have thought they were purchasing vacation homes in beautiful Mexico. Beach front property. Cheap prices. Guaranteed ownership through some loophole. The problem is that when you are scammed, you are left with nothing but empty pockets and a broken heart.

Unfortunately, the media is all about printing the horror stories, so many people believe having a vacation rental in Mexico always means getting scammed or ripped off. This is far from the truth!

Mexico is one of the most premier and beautiful vacationing spots in the world. Affordable prices, friendly people, hospitable services, and beautiful landscape all lend a part in offering the visitor something special. Even a visitor can turn into a long term residence. Yes, Mexico is just that beautiful.

However, it is important to always be a wise and smart consumer. If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. This is something you should always keep near and dear to your heart when looking for great rental property.

Remember, anyone can be the victim of a scam or fraud. But it is easier than ever to use your head. Do your research. Contact the appropriate authorities if you are the victim of fraud to insure that others do not fall victim to the same scam. Do your part, and you will find that having property in Mexico can be a reality.

Always use proper legal channels. If the company you are dealing with suggested you do not need legal representation because he or she can be trusted, walk, no run, as fast as you can the other way. Dreaming of a beautiful sunset over the Pacific can be a reality, but if you are taken advantage of, you will find that your dream will be put on hold.

A vacation rental is a possibility. You can have your own slice of heaven, but you will want to insure proper legal channels are followed and contacted in order to thoroughly enjoy your investment.
