Mexico Real Estate Industry Fights Back

Defending against the onslaught of negative press from the US media, RE/MAX recently issued results of research claiming that tourist zones in Mexico are up to 26 times safer than many tourist zones in the United States.

Among its findings: the state of Baja California Sur has a homicide rate 26 times lower than Orlando, 18 times lower than Miami, 17 times lower than West Palm Beach and 12 times lower than Tampa and Honolulu.

The report also stated that Baja California Sur has a homicide rate 39 times lower than Washington DC, 19 times lower than Houston and 17 times lower than Dallas. The new research by RE/MAX Investment Properties comparing homicide rates in the U.S.A., Canada and Mexico shows that Mexican tourist zones are much safer than those in the U.S.A. and many tourists are probably safer on vacation in Mexico than when on vacation or living at home
