There's a saying " when the US economy catches a cold, Mexico catches the flu". The last 2 times this happened were the unfortunate incidents of the terrorist planes hitting the towers, then the economic crash casing the "great recession" in 07-08. The builder you cite was far enough through the process and didn't idle or shut down as did many others. As evidenced by the rusted building skeletons still there. Investing is always a calculated risk, good luck to you with your presale down payment. ALOT of people lost ALOT of money. I wish you well.
