“Can foreigners own property in Mexico?” is an often-asked question. The answer: YES, Americans and other foreigners may obtain direct ownership of property in the interior of Mexico.
Mexico is a signatory of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA,) thereby agreeing to guarantee the same rights and privileges to citizens of the United States and Canada. Title Insurance on Mexican real estate is available through several U.S. based companies.
Foreign investors are strongly advised to seek legal, tax and other professional advice prior to purchasing deeded property. In addition, the current owners are U.S. citizens and have already completed this process. As a result, they can direct new owners to proper legal counsel.
Acreage & Topography:
Approximately 57,052 acres, all privately owned. Of the total acreage, these properties are divided into two separate parcels, “The Represo” and “Del Gringo” and can be purchased together or separately. Gravity-pressurized pipe for water delivery is available. Terrain varies from irrigated meadows, to rolling pasture land with shallow to steep arroyos, lush stream bottoms, and high, rugged mountain peaks. Trees on the ranch include several varieties of oak, mesquite, eucalyptus, and scattered palms. Several varieties of grasses and an extensive supply of Cholla patches exist on the ranch. The ranch has superb browse and year-round habitat which is proven by the trophy photos.
Approximately 40 miles of roads allow easy access to most parts of the ranch. The Gringo Ranch has 20 separate pastures and the Represso 27.
Without question, some of the finest trophy mule deer hunting in the “WORLD!” Currently, both ranches are under strict management to maximize the mule deer habitat and livestock grazing.

In all, there are eight ponds, numerous gravity flow drinkers and miles of buried pressurized water lines.
State of Sonora:
Sonora's shores are washed by the Sea of Cortez (or Gulf of California, as it is also known), which is connected to the Pacific Ocean further south. Sonora is thus linked to the so-called "Pacific Rim," which offers ample opportunities for economic development as well as many challenges and opportunities for sustainable use of its natural resources.
Sonora borders the state of Chihuahua to the east, Sinaloa to the south and Baja California to the northwest; to the north it shares an extensive border with the U.S. state of Arizona and a shorter one with New Mexico. To its west lies the Gulf of California; the state of Baja California Sur also shares a maritime boundary with Sonora.
These borders allow for multiple economic, cultural, and political ties with the United States. Sonora is the second largest state in Mexico (184,934 km²), representing 9.2% of the nation's total area.
Sonora consists of four physiographic regions: The Sierra Madre Occidental, Parallel Mountains and Valleys, the Sonoran Desert, and the coast of the Gulf of California. Sonora is located in a climactic strip in the northern hemisphere that has formed various deserts around the globe. The state is located at the same latitude as the deserts of North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and other regions. Extreme high temperatures, upwards of 49°C or higher occur in summer in desert areas while winters although short, are cool compared with most of Mexico, snow covering the peaks of the Sierra Madra Occidental.
The government of Sonora is divided into three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial.
The executive branch consists of a governor elected by direct vote every six years without the possibility of re-election.
The legislative branch consists of a unicameral legislature composed of 21 deputies elected directly and 12 deputies selected by proportional representation for a period of three years with no possibility of re-election.
The judicial branch of the state of Sonora is composed of seven judges.
Transportation / Airports:
An extensive network of roads, the backbone of which is a four-lane highway that crosses the state from south to north, joins Sonora with the rest of Mexico and with the United States.
Sonora has six international airports; however, one of them, Álamos International Airport (XAL) in the colonial town of Álamos, lacks commercial flights. Airports with regular commercial flights include:
Ciudad Obregón International Airport (CEN) in Ciudad Obregón
General Ignacio Pesqueira Garcia International Airport (HMO) in Hermosillo
General José María Yáñez International Airport (GYM) in Guaymas
Nogales International Airport (NOG) in Nogales
Puerto Peñasco International Airport (PPE) in Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point)
Also, most towns have paved or dirt runways for private planes
