When considering buying a Playa del Carmen condo on a budget, to begin with you might ask fairly – “What’s the best I can get for my budget?” If you’re on a budget for less than $150,000 USD, the good news is you can still expect a lot for your money. Consider the following features that you can expect to find.
Spacious Design – You can expect to get a condo unit that is spacious, probably open-concept with 2 bedrooms (or a very large 1 bedroom), large balconies and terraces, nice interior finishing, features such as a kitchen bar and ample closet space. In sort, you can expect a comfortable, roomy living space.
Walk to the Beach – For this price you won’t be looking directly on the beachfront, but it’s entirely reasonable to expect walking distance to the beach. Along the same line of thought, you can expect that the route to the beach be pleasant, with plenty of trees and perhaps nice homes and condo complexes along the way.
New Gated Community – The community that you find your condo in should be a nice community that offers the security, reduced traffic and exclusivity of a gated entrance with manned security. Playa del Carmen is very safe already, but part of the biggest lure of this kind of community is the exclusivity and quiet lifestyle offered.
Bike Trails, Green Areas – For this price, you can also expect to find a community nicely designed with bike trails and designated green and natural areas. This kind of design adds to the quiet relaxation mentioned in the point before, and makes the walk (or bike ride) to the beach even more pleasant. Greener communities also have more refreshing air!
Pool, Lounge Area, Exercise Space – It’s not even too much to ask for lifestyle amenities directly within your complex. These areas make it easy and relaxing to enjoy a poolside drink in the warm evening and to keep exercising and fit on the days you don’t feel in the mood to go out. The concept of a condo complex makes it easier to enjoy these amenities on an average budget.
Financing & Discounts – On units around this price, you can often find options like bank or developer financing; if you get the timing right with your agent, you can also find pre-construction discounts.
So, if you’re buying on a budget of $150,000 USD, what do you think of Playa del Carmen condos like this? More than you’d expect on the beachfront for this price?
