Playa del Carmen Real Estate - Getting the Most for Your Money on Your Dream Home

Finding your dream home in Paradise should be easy, right?  While finding a beautiful Playa del Carmen home for sale is most certainly easily, following these tips will help you get the most for your money when you buy Playa del Carmen real estate.

 

Consider all locations – Some people have been to Playa del Carmen and want to buy in a community near their hotel, or are determined to have a home overlooking the sand, etc.  These are excellent options, but to get the best deal and the most suitable home, it’s worth considering other locations, such as any of the area’s 9 professionally designed golf courses, a resort or a quiet residential community downtown, among many others.

 

Buy land – One of the most commonly overlooked options in Playa del Carmen is that of Mexico land for sale. Land in this area is usually not available on the beachfront or downtown – and if it is, it’s on the pricy side.  Yet, going back to the last point, golf courses and very nice gated communities back from the beach offer nice lots in good locations for American and Canadian buyers to have their dream home built – exactly as they like it.

 

Consider a fixer-upper – This is definitely not an option for everyone, but for those who like personal projects, there are well-built homes in the downtown area that need a loving touch.  Those who like this sort of thing can turn a fairly un-interesting fixer-upper into their dream home a walk away from the world’s most beautiful beach.  The prices are low enough that such projects offer substantial savings.

 

Look at price reductions – If you are flexible about location and style, very beautiful homes can be found for considerably reduced prices when sellers want to sell quickly.  While these tend to get picked up quickly (the sales market is fairly healthy these days) working with an experienced agent will help you be on the ball and get to those reductions before others do.

 

Work with an experienced agent – This helps a good deal in all aspects.  Experienced, qualified agents will know the market and have a good feel for what’s a good deal.  They will be able to help you identify your dream home and find it at a reasonable price.  They will also help you identify safe options with all documents in order.
