First Quarter 2016 Puerto Vallarta Market Report
The Easter holiday is over and we have the results from the first quarter Puerto Vallarta real estate market. It has been a wonderful season filled with incredible weather, activities, theatre, concerts, parades and celebrations, and of course a busy real estate market.
Here is a comparison for the first quarter of 2015 compared with the first quarter of 2016.
The number of Condominium sales in Puerto Vallarta are up by 19% but the sales volume is down by -5%. The average sales price is down by -21%.
The number of House sales in Puerto Vallarta are up by 9% and sales volume is up by 47%. The average sales price has also risen up 35%.
In general we had a good start to 2016 in Puerto Vallarta this year with things a little slower for Riviera Nayarit. Our biggest obstacle has been the exchange rates for Mexican national buyers and Canadian buyers who have been looking at increases due to the exchange rates of up to 35% – 40%. They have been holding back on making their investments until exchange rates are more in line with last year. I strongly believe that if the exchange rate for the US dollar against the peso and Canadian dollar were in line with last year’s rates we would have had a blockbuster first quarter. The buyers are still hungry to purchase but are waiting for some stabilization in rates.
