Cabo Update: Stay informed by Nick Fong on Saturday Mornings

It’s been quite a unique experience dealing with this global pandemic, COVID-19.  We’ve all been affected by it and it’s opened up our eyes to just how susceptible we are to a fast-spreading virus.  But now that we’ve buckled down and put precautions are in place, we’re ready to recover as a better, stronger, and more vigilant people.  And Cabo is a shining example of that, as Nick Fong details in his Saturday morning Cabo update.

Before we dive into the state of Cabo, and all of Baja California Sur, let’s look at how COVID-19 has affected Mexico.  As Nick Fong detailed in his Saturday morning Cabo update, as of May 23rd, 2020, there have been 62,527 confirmed cases and 13,347 currently active cases of COVID-19.  Overall, there have been 6,389 deaths in Mexico from the virus.

In the southern state of Baja California Sur, which includes the wonderful towns of La Paz, Loreto, and all of Los Cabos, there are 204 active cases on COVID-19.  Also, there have been 31 deaths and 254 recoveries throughout the state.  In La Paz, there have been 91 cases.  But in Loreto, there have been ZERO cases so far!

Reporting the latest info for each Cabo Update

Ericka in Mexico City has been researching and preparing reports for Nick Fong in order to keep you up-to-date every Saturday morning in the weekly Cabo Update.  She is a Journalist for La Jornada Newspaper, where you can stay informed about the situation in Mexico.

Reopening Cabo

There was originally a reopening date set for June 1st, but that has been canceled.  Now, there’s a pending reopening date set for June 20th, but we don’t know for sure.  Therefore, stay tuned into Nick Fong’s Saturday morning Cabos Update to remain informed and to be prepared to come back to Cabo as this awesome Mexican destination begins to thrive again.

Regarding flights to Cabo, it looks like 60% of air connectivity will resume.  Then regarding hotels, it looks like 80% of hotel occupancy will reopen.  This will all come back online little-by-little.  Much of the information about this comes from the Pueblo Bonito Hotel Group in Cabo.  They are going through extensive measures to ensure public safety as people start coming back – extreme best practices.  Ronival is also using extreme best practices to ensure the safety of their clients as they tour homes for sale throughout Baja California Sur.

Third and fourth quarter recovery

Nick Fong describes the recover as being shaped like a Nike swoosh.  It’s going to be a slow and steady upswing as Baja California Sur comes back online.

Crizol, who is Nick Fong’s Operations Manager, has been working tirelessly on the housing recover information, in order to keep the Ronival team and all of you up-to-date on the overall recovery status.  You can see the latest housing information at mls.loscabosagent.com, where you can download a pdf with the latest information.

As of May 16th, 2020, $2.7M of list volume occurred during the previous week.  There has been quite a sharp reduction in new properties going on the market during this global pandemic.  But it’s going back up.  Nick expects it to look like a “V” formation as seller confidence is increasing.  To see all of the housing and recovery data, just visit mls.loscabosagent.com and download the latest pdf.

Change in company name: Los Cabos Agent is now Ronival


Introducing Ronival, the new company name for Los Cabos Agent.  Previously, our name Los Cabos Agent made a lot of sense, since we primarily covered real estate in Los Cabos.  But now that we’ve grown to cover all of the magical towns in Baja California Sur and beyond, we decided to change our name to Ronival.  Read on to uncover the family-oriented significance of our new name.

Villa Pitaya: Building a $1.4 million dollar home with Nick Fong from Los Cabos Agent!

Welcome back to this incredible Los Cabos Agent project: Villa Pitaya.  We’re coming back to you on this episode two of building an incredible home in the Pedregal community in Cabo San Lucas.  We’ve seen some changes that we’re about to talk about in this post.  Don’t forget that here in Los Cabos Agent, together with you, we’ve embarked on a new and exciting project.  This is an exclusive complex built within the residential area of Pedregal.  And, this is a project where we’re building a $1.4 million home with Nick Fong in which you’ll be a part of it too.  Also, find out if your recommendations for the construction process came true!

Villa Pitaya in Pedregal

In the first chapter you chose the floor tiles and to leave the stone walls uncovered within some of the rooms inside the villa. This and many more choices are the ones you’ll be able to help us make, along with Nick Fong and Rebeca Curiel, every week in Villa Pitaya at Pedregal.  Follow us on this series and see the progress of this construction.  In this chapter, we can tell that the roof is done on almost all of this amazing villa.  That means that this part of the building it’s ready to take all the support pillars to keep on going with this project.

Furthermore, Nick Fong along with Rebeca Curiel show us first the garage under construction.  We can see from the video a driveway going into an enormous garage.  Just to put it in perspective, the garage roof will be holding six bedrooms on top!  Then, as we move inside the Villa, we’ve received plenty of comments and suggestions for arrangments, and mostly for this area.  Remember in the first chapter when we asked you about this area?  And, accordingly, to your suggestions, the developers are going to build a fireplace on the right-hand side against a bottom wall.  Then you’ll have a cactus wall next to the fireplace giving the whole space a nice desert vibe.  Lastly, summed to all the details mentioned before, there’ll be a comfy sitting place in the middle.  There will also be some nice water features in this same room that were inspired by the Waldorf Hotel in the Pedregal.  The cool thing about it all is that you as a viewer and costumer of Los Cabos Agent have decided to do it this way!

It’s all in the details

Moving forward around the house, we go to the outside into an amazing terrace.  This terrace is now in the process of being floored and prepared for the poolside area next to the outdoor kitchen – Yes, there’s an outdoor kitchen!  The design on the outside is going to have a nice white and gray stone and exposed rock combination for the walls.  There’ll also be plenty of sitting space, and of course, the amazing view comes included with the whole package.  The main characteristic of Villa Pitaya will definitely be the natural rock walls.  You’ll see them a lot along with the main rooms of this home, letting plenty of natural light sink in through the natural mountain quarry, illuminating in a great organic way.
