After a year, we eliminated the wall between the two townhouses and renovated them into one extremely roomy three room condominium. For a very long time, while as yet working in Houston, we completely delighted in visiting Vallarta a few times each year.
Eventually after the acquisition of the two condominiums, we saw that our unique escrituras (lawful property documentation like a title or deed that is held in a fidecomiso or bank trust) demonstrated the property estimations to be around 33% of what we really paid for them.
