Afirma el Presidente Municipal Gustavo González Villaseñor.
Vallarta, con el Mayor Crecimiento y Desarrollo de Toda su Historia

Durante la colocación de la primera piedra del centro comercial “Galerías Vallarta” que albergará la tienda Liverpool, el primer edil se congratuló de haber impulsado la gran inversión privada que hoy tiene el destino, el cual también goza de mayor derrama turística, económica y empleos en toda su historia.

Puerto Vallarta atraviesa por el mejor momento de su historia en cuanto a crecimiento y desarrollo como destino turístico, y es gracias a que se mantiene como una de las ciudades más seguras del país y el mejoramiento de su infraestructura turística y urbana, lo que ha permitido mayor confianza y apertura a la inversión privada.

Lo anterior destacó el Presidente Municipal, Gustavo González Villaseñor, durante la ceremonia de colocación de la primera piedra de lo que será el desarrollo comercial “Galerías Vallarta” que albergará a una de las cadenas de mayor prestigio en México, como es tiendas Liverpool.

En el acto celebrado este sábado en las inmediaciones del predio donde se erigirá este importante centro comercial y acompañado de su esposa Gloria Córdova de González, así como representantes de la empresa inmobiliaria Puerto de Liverpool, autoridades militares, empresarios, regidores y funcionarios, el primer edil se congratuló en señalar que ha sido durante su administración que Puerto Vallarta ha recibido la mayor inversión privada en toda su historia.

Subrayó que gracias a las bellezas naturales y atractivos que ofrece Puerto Vallarta a sus visitantes y el ser una de las ciudades más seguras del país, así como la apertura de su gobierno a la inversión que ha permitido la mayor generación de empleos en toda la historia del municipio, actualmente el destino goza también de una mayor presencia a nivel mundial y registra el mayor arribo de visitantes que jamás antes había tenido.

Asimismo, enfatizó que con el respaldo de los gobiernos estatal y federal, Vallarta se ha beneficiado como nunca en inversión pública con una gran cantidad de obras de infraestructura necesarias para la ciudad, lo cual confirma la trascendencia que conlleva al puerto a posicionarse como el destino de playa más visitado a nivel internacional.

En presencia de Miguel Bordes, director general de la empresa inmobiliaria Liverpool, González Villaseñor se mostró orgulloso de presenciar y respaldar el crecimiento y progreso del destino turístico mediante la factibilidad que existe y la riqueza de tierras vallartenses, para emprender una trayectoria conjunta hacia el engrandecimiento de la ciudad y su población.

Miguel Bordes por su parte, refrendó el deseo de su empresa por destacar la decidida voluntad con la ciudadanía vallartense, al tiempo que agradeció al munícipe vallartense al constatar su ímpetu de desempeñar una labor social, económica y comercial que ha contribuido a la mejora del municipio.

“Se busca contribuir de manera tangible al bienestar de esta promisoria región, con un espíritu de modernidad, al aplicar en el proyecto las más altas tecnologías, siempre respetando la imagen urbana de la ciudad, afianzando el ámbito empresarial con la generación de empleos y dinamizando la economía para crear un clima de bienestar que respete al medio ambiente”, resaltó el empresario.

Cabe destacar que el proyecto será inaugurado en noviembre de 2007 en una superficie de 60 mil metros cuadrados de construcción y más de 80 locales comerciales que darán una nueva opción tanto a la población residente, como a los turistas que visiten la ciudad.

Sera construido en menos de un año...!

"Sera inaugurado en noviembre de 2007"...

Sin duda que Vallarta esta creciendo impresionantemente.

Y el centro de convenciones se ve muy, muy interesante...!!!!

Me imagino que las "Velas" son de un recubrimiento de lona ateflonada, y su tamaño es bastante considerable, le calculo de menos 30m. si se compara con las figuras humanas. El semicirculo en forma espiral (Tipo nautilus), muy apropiado, en general me gusta mucho el diseño.

Que emocionante todo el movimiento de Vallarta...!

BY LATE 2006 US $24 MILLION DOLLARS WILL HAVE BEEN SPENT ON IMPROVEMENTS THAT INCLUDE 2 MORE 984 FOOT PIERS THAT ACCOMMODATE THE NEW BIG CRUISE SHIPS WHICH ARE 984 FEET LONG. (THEY HAVE TO BE UNDER 1,000. FEET TO GET THRU THE PANAMA CANAL)

ONCE THIS CONSTRUCTION IS COMPLETE PUERTO VALLARTA CAN BE A “HOME PORT” FOR CRUISE SHIPS. WHEN YOU ARE A HOME PORT CRUISES WOULD START AND FINISH IN PUERTO VALLARTA AND MOST IMPORTANTLY 3 DAY PRE AND POST CRUISE STAYS WILL GENERATE MORE MARINA VALLARTA REAL ESTATE SALES FOR SURE.

ESSENTIALLY THIS IS HUGE FOR PUERTO VALLARTA.

7-21 DAY CRUISES OUT OF PUERTO VALLARTA WOULD GO SOUTH TO:

ACAPULCO, MEXICO
PUNTA ARENAS, COSTA RICA

IF A CRUISE SHIP COMPANY USED PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO AS A HOME PORT THEY COULD ACCEPT PASSENGERS WHO DO NOT HAVE USA VISAS AS THEY WOULD NOT GO INTO USA WATERS. VISA’S TO THE USA ARE A REAL BIG PROBLEM SINCE SEPTEMBER 11, 2001. THE 985 foot long CRUISE SHIPS CARRY 2,600 = 3,300 PASSENGERS AND CREWS OF OVER 1750. THEY COST US $500. MILLION to us$600 million. (2002 published figure)

today cruise ships are always 100% full as if they are not full they email/fax past cruise ship PASSENGERS WHO live in the zip code(s) closest to the pOrt the cruise ship departs from. In fort lauderdale, Florida thousands of widow ladies bought condos close to the cruise ship harbor and are PACKED and ready to take a cabin of a PASSENGER who had to CANCEL at the last minute. they get great prices and they do not care if they go to the same ports of call. being on the cruise ship and around people is what its all about to the ladies in their late 70’s and 80’s.

S
ince 1989 I have been writing newsletters whereby among the things I write is what’s ahead for marina Vallarta – Real estate wise. Simply put 95% of all real estate sales in Marina Vallarta have and will be at Bayview Grand, Porto Fino & Shangri-La beach front condo projects. Grand Venetian beach front condos /villas next to Holiday Inn is now under construction. 420 condos in 3-28 story tower and 56 lake front villas. 170 as of august sales as of august 10, 2006 at the Venetian. This project is by far the best designed project in the whole 100 wide bay. Tres Mares is the huge new project that's between the Westin and the newly enlarged cruise chip harbor. 4-25 story condo buildings plus 14 harbor front 3 million dollar villas. Sales and construction to start in September. 2006.


REAL ESTATE PRICES
I
n December 2004 due to the china industrial revolution big steel (i-beams and large re-bar) prices went up 120% overnight plus German technology ultra light weight concrete blocks- autocaved aeroted concrete (AAC) that are made in Mexico went up 84%. This will cause new, to be built, condo projects construction costs to go way up which will lead to a lot higher sales prices. existing beach front condos market values will increase substantially in the 2007/2008 time period.

California supplies Vallarta with the largest amount of serious real estate buyers. Property values in California have sky rocketed resulting in huge equities in real estate. This and other factors mentioned elsewhere in this letter will keep us experiencing a real estate boom in Vallarta for the next several years to come. The more CNN speaks if the possible world war III, civil war in the middle east, continued problems in countries that hate the USA who have nuclear capabilities, terrorists plots, the list is endless as you know – the more some people think little old Puerto Vallarta Mexico might be a “Great plan B”.

2 bedroom Marina front condos in Marinas in California (when you can find them) start at us$800,000. and monthly maintenance fees are at least us$1,300. /month.

Most people from the United States East of California and Texas go to Florida and look at properties from the Miami areas to West Palm Beach and over in Naples (Naples now the richest county in Florida. no longer west palm).

In these Florida areas Relatively new 2 bedroom beach front ocean view condos start at US$850,000. with monthly maintenance fees running at least US$1,400.–US$1,800. and mandatory Homeowners Insurance with Hurricane coverage run at least US$10,000. a year and that’s before Katrina. Insurance coverage in hurricane prone areas will increase due to Katrina. Real Estate Taxes US$12,000. a year and rising (2% of market value)

In Mexico we are still blessed with (when compared to USA) very inexpensive construction costs and those savings are passed on to the buyers in the form of lower sales prices. 2br monthly maintenance fees run about us$270. see listing sheet for real estate prices. Annual real estate tax $2,614. pesos a year . For a 2br beach front cond0.


AMERICAN TRAVEL TRENDS
P
eople like myself that have traveled to Europe in the last 2 years are now fully aware of the fact that a certain percentage of the world currently do not like Americans because of the war. It is like they forgot what happened in the 1940’s in Europe. Vacation travelers do not like to travel to countries that the people of that country obviously do not like you, and look at you as if you have leprosy.

The idea of vacationing in Muslim countries is unthinkable now by Americans.
The number of Countries that are American friendly is shrinking as each day goes by.

The friendliest country the Americans can vacation in currently is Mexico. The friendliest City in Mexico is Puerto Vallarta.

This facts will greatly contribute to increased tourism in Mexico and increased Real Estate sales to baby boomers for the next several years.

Clients tell me that investing in the stock market now is just to stressful for them and that passbook savings at Banks currently at about 2% does not provide them with enough interest to get excited about.

Even if the condo /villa only appreciates 4% a year and net rental income is only 6% per year that combined 10% estimated return will be received as good in TODAY’S conservative investment market.

Clients tell me they want to vacation in a resort town they are familiar with, that they perceive to be friendly towards people from the USA, safe as can be expected in today’s world, within driving distance of where ever their home is and it would have to be A warm climate. Bingo! Little ole Puerto Vallarta tops the list of cities to vacation in. In fact Conde Nast Traveler Magazine IN 2002 named Puerto Vallarta as the friendliest International city for American Travellers and the eighth most favourite International Destination in the world. Number 1 was Paris then Sydney, Rome, Florence, Bangkok, London, Venice, Puerto Vallarta, Honk Kong and Vancouver.

In mid 2001 the peso annual savings interest rate dropped to 3.2% from about 19%. savings rates in Mexico averaged less than 2% FOR THE year 2004. A lot of Mexican nationals have cashed in their certificates of deposits and bought mainly Bayview Grand and Porto Fino condominiums. Most all do not rent them out. They use Christmas and New years, Easter plus the first week IN August. They feel the new beach front condos will appreciate 10% the first year and then 5% per year. They like being in real estate that is bought and sold in US dollars.

Puerto Vallarta is getting an increase of over 55% in Cruise Ship docking due to re-routing. Currently Y 8 cruise ships a week. Cruise ship tourist don’t buy real estate but a lot return for vacation. Through the years a lot of clients that have bought real estate from me have said their first visit to Puerto Vallarta was on a cruise ship. Puerto Vallarta's newly enlarged cruise ship harbor HAS 3-985 foot docks which is the last hurdle for Vallarta to be considered as a cruise ship “home port”. when this happens we will obviously see real estate prices go up in Marina Vallarta and at the Venetian. Some cruise ship’s would start and end in Marina Vallarta. Cruise ship people (like myself) look forward to new cruise itineraries. The new improvements will cost an estimated us$24 million dollars and you can see the work being finished now.

Christmas /new years brings us a lot of wealthy Mexican nationals that prior to September 11 spent holidays in the USA. A lot have now bought Condos at Bayview Grand, Porto Fino and SHANGRI-LA will spend their time off in Puerto Vallarta rather than in the USA. for a Mexican to get a visa for their new young children is a major problem now as they have to wait up to 4 months for an appointment with the American Consulate. they can not go to USA with their older children only.

More and more people now have the attitude that in their golden years, they are going to live life to its fullest and if the kids get a little less inheritance -so be it! they earned it and they ought to be able to spend it.

Bayview, Is a 477 Beach Front condo pet project of mine. a lot of the 477 buyers are from the United States and Canada. They have indicated they plan to spend the winters in "SUNNY" Puerto Vallarta and that Puerto Vallarta has the best weather they have ever been in –in the winter.

Porto Fino Is a beach front project next to Marriott. It consists of 239 condominiums in 2-15 story towers plus 9 beach front homes priced at US $1.2 million each. The first tower of condominiums was delivered in April 2004, second tower delivered in October 2004. ALL 9 of the houses sold in 2003 and all the condos sold in 2005.

Between the Marriott & Melia Shangri-La beach front condominiums is being built by the owner of the Marriott. The project consists of 5-18 level TOWERS of 2 & 3 bedroom UNITS with maid quarters plus 2 level very large Penthouses. The type construction costs a lot of money. Construction started August 15, 2003. As of August 15, 2006 only 6 remained unsold. March 2006- December 2006 delivery of the 5 buildings.

September, 2006 the Tres Mares (3 OCEANS) project will start construction and sales. It is a development by the developer of Shangri-la. It will consist of 450 condos in 4 towers. They will have 14 –US$3 Million dollars cruise ship Harbor fronting large villas. I submitted the name “Harbor point” to the developer when he was in the process of naming the project. The name Bayview Grand was my suggested name for that project.

Prices are estimated to be at least 30% above Shangri-la pre construction. It will be the who's who in Mexico's address. The idea of sitting on the terrace watching 3-985 foot long cruise ships enter the cruise ships harbor early morning, City lights, sun rises, Sun sets is an experience only a special few will experience – including this old gringo.

No more building skeletons for Vallarta: In order to obtain a building permit for a condo or hotel project in Puerto Vallarta you have to give the city a completion bond. to get a completion bond at a good rate you have to build according to the international beach front construction codes and not Jalisco State or national codes. International codes require a special type sea wall that is 27 feet deep with all kinds of rebar in it plus it curves out towards the sea. The pilings go down 72 feet at Bayview Grand and the re-bar is over 1 inch thick. The pilings are 5-6 feet in diameter. At the new Venetian the pilings go down 109 feet. (33 meters) and are 7 feet in diameter. It takes 22 large concrete trucks full of concrete to fill one hole. Each building has 26 pilings. No completion bond required in the state of Nayarit (NUEVO VALLARTA)


Mexico now considered investment grade
I
ndividual investors from the USA feel SAFE with investing in certain select resort cities in Mexico as they no longer fear Mexico and their devaluation of the peso every few years.

They realize that the United States will come to the rescue of Mexico in Mexico's time of need. Not because it's the neighborly thing to do but because the United States wants to be able to call in a favor if in the event some crazy nukes the oil fields of the far east.

Mexico's oil fields are close to the Texas border. Pemex, Mexico's oil company is # 3 in the world in oil production.

A pipeline, like the Alaska pipeline, could be constructed underground from Mexico's oil fields to the refineries in Texas. For OBVIOUS reasons the United States cannot say this publically.

Pemex oil company announced August 27, 2004 that its proven oil reserves are now known to be at least 102 billion barrels. United Arab Emirat: 98 billion, Kuwait: 94 billion, Iran: 90 billion, Iraq: 113 billion.

By this discovery in the gulf of Mexico -Mexico’s oil production could go from a current level of 4 million barrel per day to 7 million barrels a day.

Saudi Arabia currently produces 7.5 million barrels of oil a day followed by Russia at 7.4 million a day.

Mexico is now receiving proposed partnership agreements from global oil giants to extract the oil with new deep sea oil extraction technology.

Because of the increased income from oil & other sources Mexico has decreased the federal income tax from 34% in 2004 to 30% in 2005 & by 2007 it will be 28%. Mexico has a 15% value added tax on everything. not on residential properties.

On October 25, 2002 Hurricane Keena’s 70 mph Outer winds hit Puerto Vallarta and heavily damaged all beach front Hotels lobby, restaurants and pool areas. 3,802 hotel rooms closed. Insurance company money has rebuilt the ground levels of those 13 hotels. the construction industry is experiencing a boom in Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta. Atena from USA own the largest insurance company in Mexico. General electric owns the second largest insurance company in Mexico.


Marina Vallarta

M
arina Vallarta is talked about in Mexico as a class book example of a planned resort community of which the first hotels and condos were delivered in 1988 / 1989.

It's been my personal pleasure to be a part of that process since 1988. First as sales manager for the developer then on my own since September 1994. From A developers stand point Marina Vallarta was sold out in September 1994. Over 3 billion dollars has been spent in Marina Vallarta so far.

The developer of Marina Vallarta was a partnership of manufactures Hanover trust, security pacific national bank of Los Angeles (now Citibank and Bank of America) and Mexican steel company.


Interesting Facts

T
he January 4, 1999 edition of leisure travel news published two lists by 500 Travel Agency networks. "Best sun destinations in the world" Cancun, Orlando, Phoenix, Puerto Vallarta and then Las Vegas. "top 10 world destinations" London, Paris, Rome, Frankfurt, Sydney, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Puerto Vallarta, Madrid and Vancouver. Puerto Vallarta has gone from "A sleepy little fishing village" (Famous quote of film maker John Houston in 1958) to a World-Class tourist resort.

President Vicente fox’s cabinet members were mostly educated in the United States:

Foreign Relations Secretary: Doctorate in Economics from Princeton

Energy Secretary: Chemical Engineering Mit

Finance Secretary: Doctorate in Economics University of Chicago

ENERGY Secretary: Doctorate in Economics University of Iowa

Economic Coordinator: Doctorate in Economics University of Iowa

Environment Secretary: Masters in Economics Simmins Collage in Boston

Agriculture & Transportation Secretaries: Mexico City College Degrees

All the secretaries have long Backgrounds in business and administration, both in the public sector and private sector.

17 of the 18 Mexicans are now controlled by global banking companies. Banco Bilbao Viscaya Argentaria (Spain) bought Mexico's # 1 Bank-Bancomer. Citibank bought Banamex, the countries # 2 bank. Bank of America the # 3 Bank Serfin. HSBC THE # 4 BANK.

Mexico now has 77.6 billion dollars in reserves. When the peso devaluation occurred on December 19, 1994 the dollar reserves were only US $3 billion dollars plus a dangerous high percentage of the government debt was very short term. The IMF was involved in the restructuring of Mexico’s debt as they needed a class book example of what a country could do if they followed the advice of the IMF. Mexico's debt is now all long term.


Corporate America's continued move to Mexico
I
n the summer of 1998 the united auto workers in the United States finally finished digging their own grave. All the United States auto and truck makers boardrooms were busy finalizing their new aggressive Mexico plant additions whereby they will slowly slide out of the United States. Now days stock holders demand management to make decisions solely on bottom line considerations. Those decisions are no brainer's. They cut total labor costs 90%. improve productivity per man hour and they have zero union problems in Mexico. As you know China is where everything is made now. The USA’s trade deficit with China in 2005 is estimated at us$190. billion. Wal-Mart recently admitted that of the 6,000 suppliers they have 80% are from china. China produces items 40% below Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Mexico. The United States and Mexico do not know how to deal with the problem of the Yuan being so low and China will not let the Yuan currency float.

May 29 and 30th 2002 was a very special time for Marina Vallarta. The Marriott hosted a trade convention for all Asian countries, APEC (Asian Pacific Economy Co-operation). A lot of the attendee’s were VIP’s including Mexico’s president Vicente Fox, China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and Little ole Papua New Guinea to name a few. 21 countries total.

Instead of having the convention in Mexico City, Guadalajara or Monterrey, the government choose Marina Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta as the number 1 city in Mexico to show off to businessmen from the Asian Countries. for the same reason, a few years ago the Marriott hosted the Gatt Convention (g8). 1200 people had a sit down dinner at one time. (The largest in Puerto Vallarta history).

In October 2002 the former Director of the CIA said something very mater-a-factly on Lou Dobbs money line. He said in the event the middle east oil was cut off that the USA could operate out of the strategic oil reserves for up to one year now with current inventories and that the inventories could be doubled whereby the USA could last for up to 2 years on their own oil supply plus the strategic oil reserves. He went on to add that during the 2 years a pipe line could be constructed from Mexico's oil fields to the refineries in Texas.

It would take billions of dollars to upgrade the Mexican refineries. The president of Mexico is currently trying to get the Mexican congress to authorize Global Oil Giants Investing in refineries. Mexico would still own the oil that comes out of the ground but it has to be refined before it can be sold. I

20 year first mortgage money should soon become a reality in Mexico for USA Canada's who residents of USA/Canada and who want to buy a condo/Villa in Mexico. Bank of America /CirtyBank /Scotiabank of Canada and HSBC now own the 4 top banks in Mexico. Be aware of so called Mortgage brokers from the USA that say they make loans in Mexico. Read fine print about interest rate increases.

Once these banks Mexican lending programs get underway we will see a surge in buying vacation /rental condos in Puerto Vallarta and prices will go up. As of now 99% of condo/villas sales are cash sales.

Long term loans to Mexican nationals is non existant. Short term loans of 3 years are available at about 3% per month interest. Car loans are at 30% per year interest. Auto production in Mexico increased 53.4% in November 2005 due to Banks now giving 4 years fining at 2.5% per month. (30% per year) the same mentality as the USA customers only want to know how much down an how much a month.

Speaking of the auto industry in the year 2005 Toyota reported a profit of US$11 billion dollars. GM is reported US$10.8 billion lost and it appears there is no light at the end of the tunel.

China is about to open car dealerships in the USA says the wall street Journal. Talk about nightmare for the USA auto industry. They will sell cars at US$10,000. that cost USA auto makers US$25,000. to make.


Cancun



T
he replacement of the Famous white sand will be completed in December 2006 the government says. Very expensive Federal Government project to dredge up the sand out at the sea and reconstruct the beaches.



At Tristar Rentals we have received a lot of guests that were going to Cancun that had to go to "Plan B".
