Steady Stream of Seniors, and Others, Seeking Homes Outside the USA

Livtopia's success filling Discovery Weekends in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Costa Rica has led to a second July Rivera May Weekend and an August Merida Mexico "On-the-Ground" Discovery Weekend.

Mexico City, Mexico, June 29, 2008 --( Livtopia, the Full Service Real Estate firm, has seen a steady increase in US and Canadian Citizens signing up for Real Estate seminars and property buying crash courses since they launched the program last year.

Livtopia has announced a second July "On-the-Ground" Riviera Maya Discovery Weekend. The success of the first free weekend, coming up on July 3,4 & 5 has led to additional dates on July 26, 27, 28 of 2008. Also, about 3 Hours away from the July location in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Mexico, a first-ever event in Merida, Mexico, will take place on August 23, 24 & 25.

Livtopia's educational and professional introductions service make every Discovery Weekend attractive and property ownership and acquisition are much less mysterious.

"We concentrate on the truly confusing aspects of buying - like buying through a bank trust," said Diane Hamelberg, the company's Customer Services Director and director of the Discovery Weekends program. "A bank trust isn't any less than totally yours, but we make a point of clearing up the procedural steps to buying a house and making sure that if a customer wants a lawyer right now, there is one available." A bank trust or fideicomiso is necessary for foreign buyers to purchase property within 50 kilometers of Mexico's coast.

Every "On-the-Ground" Discovery Weekend includes property and city/location tours, 2-3 nights in a 4-5 star hotel and all meals and drinks. Generally the learning sessions are held in or around the hotel but that frequently means meeting in a truly remarkable setting. "Many hotels offer us an exquisite terrace or a palapa to hold our break-out sessions," continued Hamelberg. "We don't have to coax people into conference rooms because they tend to get even more interested once they see the locations we've been talking about."

The Riviera Maya and Merida "On-the-Ground" Discovery Weekends are seeing increased interest, and numbers. As are nearly all of the other locations. Livtopia selects locations based on the level of interest that visitors to the web site express. Information about all of the upcoming weekends and seminars can be read at Livtopia's homepage.
