Building Your Home In Baja: A Great Value

The process of building a home in Mexico is similar to how you would approach it in the U.S.

You will want to hire an architect and select your contractor.  And just like in the U.S.,  you want to match estimates with the goal of developing a relationship with professionals who match your vision and your costs. 

We can help you through every step of this process -- with as much or as little on-the-ground attention as you need. We're already working with a pool of talented, respected builders and designers and are happy to make recommendations.

And we can be your "eyes and ears" here in Baja for you -- checking on your project to make sure your team is on task, on budget and on schedule.

We're excited to watch Vista del Cortez begin to take shape and form before our eyes. Here in Baja, the local craftsmanship is extraordinary, construction prices are affordable and we are happy to assist you on-site from top to bottom.

Average Cost Per Square Foot

Local craftwork is extraordinary and construction prices are extremely affordable. General building costs range from $65 to $85 per-square-foot depending on materials used. The most common building materials are stucco block and concrete. Goregous locally crafted tile, stone and customized woodwork are hallmarks of the Los Barriles and La Paz- area builders. A special local feature is crafting stunning varnished support beams and finish work from work hulled from the core of the local Cordon Cactus. 

Same Electrical Service

Baja uses the same electrical service -- 110v and 220v. - as the US. And wall plug-ins are the same. All the same amenties and building features available in the US -- are available in Baja -- and more affordable, including wireless internet and energy-saving solar technology for home, pool and garden.
