My dad has agreed to buy my home here. Funny thing is, it was his and my moms home. But my mom gave it to me when she passed. Now my dad retires at end of march, and will move back to Mexico. So he calls me and says... Id rather buy your home from you, so you can move to Usa with your son. If I dont buy it.. Ill have to buy another one. This way I get a home I love, and the money stays in the family. So looks like Im moving in july to the usa.

Good for you. I think your father's decision is very smart and reasonable. On the one hand, indeed the money stays in the family. On the other hand, this is a chance for you and your son to move to the land of opportunities. And what's the best here is, like you said, that your dual citizenship will give you the chance to come back to Mexico and visit your dad anytime you want. Great deal it is, and I wish you all the best here!

sure is, Im so happy for that. I miss my son. I told mt dad i would give him the home for free. It was his anyway. he said no way. He only would take it, if I took the money. of course I gave my dad a great price for it.

Great! Actually I can understand why he wishes so much to give you the money - as parents we're determined to support our kids forever, no matter how old they're getting it's just how parents are structured. I also understand your offer to give it for free, too, because we as children consider it right, that it's our turn at some point to support our parents... What a circle of life it is...

Hi Maria. Well that is a long time. I thought you would be leaving sometime in February. And I was already worried that I will miss you here. But I think it is the other way around for you. You might be very eager to go to US. So what are your plans after going to US?? Have a nice day !!

That's good it is staying in the family, and will your dad get your cafe as well? What will happen to it? Where will you be moving within the US? Where will you be working?.

sure is, my brother is a great business man here. He has a plan so him and my dad will earn off it.

That sounds like it is going to be a good move for you. How does the cost of living compare between where you are currently and Las Vegas? That is something to keep in mind as you are making plans to move. Looking at the average price of a house in Mexico (less than $45,000USD) versus the median house price in Las Vegas ($139,900USD in the Oct. 12-Dec. 12, 2012 period, according to Trulia http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/Las_Vegas-Nevada/market-trends/), it looks like it may be a bit of an adjustment.

Yes, it is.. but my dad has a home in las vegas. After he retires Ill just take it over for him.

Oooh, coming to America! There are too many ways to earn online in America, I wonder why they don't put many in Mexico.. Perhaps I'm just not looking hard enough if there are plenty down there.. But of course, now that you're coming to America, I'd like to know how you'll feel about Mexico. Are you feeling homesick just thinking about it?
• Mexico
17 Jan 13
no, no as I lived 11-12 years in usa. Im really just going back there. i was only here 2 years this time around. Cant wait to see vegas again...

Has that been your intention my friend to move to the USA in particular? Did you have plans to move away this year, or has it all been thrust upon you, and this is one big surprise? Do you know what part of the USA you will move to? That will be a big culture shock and big adventure for you, moving to a totally different country! Sounds like fun. I have always lived in the UK, and probably will always stay in the UK. Unless of course I win enough money to have a holiday home in a cold country to escape our Summers! So are you happy about it, moving?
• Mexico
17 Jan 13
I had 2 real reasons, one my son is there going to school. the 2nd is a male friend. he has asked me to, so we can get to know each other. the deal with the house is;; here in Mexico its really hard to rent a home out. So, the only was was to sell. it was a surprised from my dad.

Wow that's great. Where in the USA do you plan on moving to? I wish you all the best in your move.
• United States

Oh never that question. I read through the discussion, and I see where you said that Las Vegas was your destination. Again I wish you all the best.

Where to? You know, Oklahoma City ... makes your money more-valuable (you know, low prices etc.) I don't have any stats on that, but I'm sure you can 'Search' (text-box at the head of this page) to see where is best!

So you decided to sell your home again and off to USA for sure this time, my friend??? I'm so glad for you at least you have a seller that is offering to take up your house to make everything as painless as possible for your plan. Bravo!!

Have to now, as I have the house in escrow. And all the right reasons to go. My son is there.. and I miss him very much.

That's a good idea my friend. Instead of selling to others, better you father buy it so the circulation of your money remains in the family. If I am near I will buy that house
• Mexico
22 Jan 13
yes, keeps it in the family. He was going to buy another house anyway.

It is lucky for you that your dad is buying your house. Here in the UK it is a nightmare trying to find a buyer for property. Nice picture of you with your dad too. You are a very pretty lady and will no doubt be popular in the US.

your dad is so kind, and buy your home. I think your dad is love you so much and he gave you your money and why don't you gave your dad stay in your home and don't have to sell to your dad? I think you stingy to your dad. That is your father home too. When they gave their home to you. They don't ask your money,right? they don't ask you to buy their hous, right?Then why don't this time, you give your home to your dad? because in the end, he will give back that home to you anyway
• Mexico

I offered that.. but he said if he did that, hed rather but another home.

umh if you plan to move to usa soon and don't need a house in Mexico, then you can sell that house to your daddy, it is not bad idea... But if you think you still need a house for sometime you return to Mexico then you can keep that house there and rent a person to care it or let people rent it for living....
• Mexico

good thing is.. my dad is alone now as my mom passed last year. So if I need to come back he will have that same 5 bedroom home here. Take care there.
