Finding housing in Mexico is fairly cheap but could be hard to find due to the high demand. It is extremely important to focus on which neighborhood you should choose that best fits your needs (like transportation accessibility, school proximity, and even scenery). It is very important to have basic knowledge in Spanish to be able to find some of the cheaper alternatives through the internet or by looking at advertisements. However, it is also advisable to communicate with real estate agents since they have more knowledge on which neighborhoods are safer.
