If you are considering a Playa del Carmen retirement, there are many excellent topmexicorealestate.com choices.  Among these, Playa del Carmen condos for sale offer some of the most distinct advantages for retirees.  These advantages include the following:

 

 Easy Maintenance – For retirees, one of the most common issues in choosing a retirement property is taking care of it.  Condos in Playa del Carmen offer easy maintenance of all common areas, green spaces and shared structure.  This fact makes it easy for retirees to have maintenance taken care of without having to contract a company or hire a caretaker.  Those organizing these services can also make it easier to find contractors who can repair items in each person’s unit.

 

Modern Amenities – Many condos in Playa del Carmen offer amenities like pools, green areas, gyms, spas, lounge spaces, elevators and even underground parking.  These allow retirees to enjoy the most comfortable lifestyle right at home.  In addition, many condos for sale are near other amenities, like restaurants, cafes, local markets and supermarkets.  For those who prefer a walk-everywhere lifestyle, this is most certainly available in Playa del Carmen.  For those how prefer the quiet of a more strictly residential gated community, these same items would be only a short drive away.

 

Low Prices – One of the best parts about condos is that they offer retirees is that all of these amenities are available at lower prices than if they wanted to buy a home with a large yard, a pool, etc.  Condos in Playa del Carmen are not only well-priced in comparison to homes, but also to other beachfront real estate areas that offer this level of lifestyle.

Pre-Construction Discounts – Budget is more and more of an issue for retirees these days.  When searching for well-priced condos, an excellent option to consider is that of pre-construction.  Before the complex is completely built, developers in Playa del Carmen often offer very good pre-construction discounts, and the option is fairly readily found these days.  This plan requires more planning ahead in buying a retirement property, but most retirees find that the savings are well worth it!

 

Mortgages – Another way to make it easier to choose that perfect condo for retirement near the Mexican beachfront is to use a mortgage.  Mortgages are now available for American, Canadian and European buyers directly from Mexican banks.  This means that retirees can use the same property they are buying as leverage against the mortgage.  For many buyers just coming up to retirement, this option can help them fit the expense of buying a property nicely into their retirement budget with easy monthly payments.

 

Expat Community – Condo complexes both downtown Playa del Carmen and out in the gated communities are often favorite choices for retirees and other expats, offer buyers a nice community of folks from back home to get to know and spend time with.  While the Mexicans are very welcoming and friendly, it definitely helps to ease into things to have neighbors from back home.

 

Close Access to the Beach – Again, both downtown and out in the gated communities, most condos are within walking distance to the beachfront.  Depending on preference for location, some are a short drive away.  In all cases, the beach becomes a part of everyday life – walking in the sand, enjoying the sun, drinking cold beer or margarita on a lounge chair etc.

 

Retirees consider Playa del Carmen should not limit their options, and it’s always best to consider all property types; however, for most retirees condos end up being the most comfortable choice.
