Playa del Carmen Real Estate Investment; Variety in Properties

Thomas Lloyd,  Broker By Thomas Lloyd

Buyers considering investing in Playa del Carmen condos are making a good choice, not because there is one property type that is a "magic choice," but because there is a variety to choose from, according to each person's investment needs.


The following are are few of the Playa del Carmen property types, and the advantage they offer investors.


Condos. Whether on the beachfront, or a few blocks back, condos in Playa del Carmen enjoy an excellent demand for vacation rentals. Owners can often use the same property for their own vacations, enjoying their investment. Condos can also be found in resort-style communities, which offer many services and a rental pool. Homes near the beachfront can offer the same benefits.


Fixer-Upper Homes. While Playa del Carmen is still very new, there are a number of homes available which have been slightly neglected, or in some other way require improvement, but are sound structures and have a lot of potential to be converted into a dream home. These can either be re-sold at considerably higher prices, or used for vacations and rental income.


Land. Because the many excellent options in new condos, villas and homes, Playa del Carmen land has received a little less attention than it may deserve. Playa del Carmen is still one of Latin America's fastest growing communities; for this reason, land purchases in newly developing areas can be very profitable for improvement or simply future resale. In some areas land has appreciated up to 20% over the past year.


Price Reductions. Values in Playa del Carmen have been rising healthy amounts over the past few years, with only a slight pause during the brunt of the recession. During this time some owners reduced prices because of the urgent need for funds. Other owners already bought and moved into a new property, and are more interested in selling quickly than getting the highest price possible. In both cases, the record of property values here, and the quick recovery after the recession indicate that this kind of purchase will offer quick appreciation, simply by returning to regular market value.


The kind of investment each buyer chooses will depend on their needs, now soon they expect a return, and how much effort and time they wish to put into their investment. Each has been proven to work well when planned carefully.
