Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2010
Los Cabos MLS recently has moved affiliations and is now a member of AMPI an International organization for Real Estate Agents and Brokers. Along with the move comes a new online MLS system “FLEX” which allows the public to search for listings in Baja Sur. One of the first brokers to incorporate the “FLEX” system into their website is Jeff Niemi, Broker for Baja Beach Investments, located in Los Barriles Mexico “The new system allows our agents to update information, manage mailing lists, and keep clients informed about prices changes and inventory availability” The new system can be viewed by the public by visiting http://www.bajamlsonline.com
The poor economy in the states has had an affect on real estate in Baja. Jeff stated “The amount of Inventory in our region has tripled over the last two years. This of course drives prices down and it is not uncommon to find sellers willing to negotiate prices by up to 50%”. The negative press about the drug cartel problems centered around the border towns has affected tourism in Baja Sur, even though there have been no reported incidents of deaths in Cabo or along the East Cape related to the drug Cartel. “Many of the home owners in my area leave there homes unlocked, and keys in the car, as crime in Los Barriles is very rare.”
Dede Bacon is a winter resident from South Lake Tahoe who owns a vacation home in Los Barriles. Dede stated “The relaxing and casual life of living in Baja is the perfect balance to unwinding from a grueling summer season of selling real estate in the Tahoe area”. Dede has used the new online MLS system to search for property in Los Barriles for her clients. Los Barriles has become a destination for many residents of Lake Tahoe and other Ski Resorts as they tire of long, snowy winters and become “snowbirds”. Dede claims, “It’s just another world down here. I get up, walk my dog on the beach, and then grab my kite gear as Los Barriles is a world renowned destination for kite boarding”.
