Are you starting to plan your Playa del Carmen retirement? Here's a little tip; ask your real estate agent to help you find a condo rental to help you define your search for the ideal Playa del Carmen condo for sale before you make the final move.
Your agent should be happy to help you make this kind of arrangement. Especially if you are relatively new to the area, or if you have just stayed in a hotel before, renting a condo that's similar to what you think you want will help you decide on what your needs are in a property, and fully experience the comfort of retirement in Playa del Carmen.
Also, if you are looking for something specific in a condo, it's easier for both you and your agent that you are in the area either for vacations or longer-term in your rental unit; when a unit turns up, you'll be readily available to go and see the unit and see directly if it's right for you.
Your agent will also probably be able to help you find a Playa del Carmen vacation rental by owners, usually from a past client who's renting out their unit while they're not using it. This direct contact with the owner will allow you to negotiate the best price; it will also offer you another connection within the expat community, helping you establish yourself within the community of retirees in Playa del Carmen.
Some real estate offices may also provide a complementary rental listing service for you after you've bought your condo, in case you are not using it year round, and hope to enjoy a little income off the property while you're not using it. Ask your agent if this type of service is available.
