possible to rent in the Centro cheaply: a single living like a student
in a single room of a big house will pay $100/month. At Calle 20
de Noviembre #1020, Apt 7 $200 for a bright, airy 2BR in quiet courtyardgood
apt. for plants. At Calle Carrillo Puerto 272, Apt 8 $360 for a
like-new 3BR, private courtyard, super-safe and pleasant. Centro
apartments are hard to find, but well worth combing the streets
by foot for as Morelias Centro is as lovely and safe a place
AIM knows anywhere.
IF YOU WANT TO OWN, PREPARE TO COMPETE WITH THE MEXICAN NATIONALS
actually own a home in a Centro with the U.N. pedigree, you have
to pay. AIM wore out shoe leather looking for something under $100,000
for its readers and found it at Carrillo Puerto #271, a 3BR, plus
kitchen and bath surrounding patio, all out of date for $99,000.
Lovely neighbors! Abetter one at Bartolomé de las Casas #427,
asking $82,000, just raised price from $69,000, a classic floor
plan, thick walls, fine street with perhaps too much day traffic.
Other recent Centro offerings: 20 de Noviembre #997 $125,000 a big
house, limestone block walls, listed by VIDE CASA, 443-340-0870,
Calle Plan de Ayala #240, $125.000 a classic central patio house
needing serious love (maybe $30,000 worth). Foot thick stone walls.
fffffUrban mansion anyone? At Calzada
Fray Antoñio de San Miguel #350, $425,000 gets you on the
ritziest and quietest Centro street, all remodeled 4BR, each with
private bath with huge dual patios, the rear one practically an
orchard with room for pool and courts. Move in condition. In Atherton,
California, which this street resembles in quality, a place like
this would go for $12 million.
