500 Playa del Carmen Real Estate - The Draw of Owning a Beachfront Condo

While www.topmexicorealestate.com/playadelcarmen-real-estate has many options in location and style, one of the choices that continue to hold the most lure for expat buyers is that of Playa del Carmen beachfront for sale.  The following are some of the attractive features of buying a Playa del Carmen condo for sale on the beachfront:

 

The Beaches – Of course, the big number one is living with Playa del Carmen’s beaches right at your doorstep.  These beaches have been called the world’s most beautiful by many travelers who have seen beaches around the world.  It is one thing to show up on these beaches for vacations, it is another thing to be able to walk on them in bare feet as a part of day to day life, feeling the soft, warm sand on your feet, or simply sitting on a lounge chair enjoying a cold drink.  It’s something altogether different when you don’t have to plan to go to the beach; it’s right there in front of you to be enjoyed without planning it.

 

The Views – Besides enjoyable, these beaches are something else to look at; they are very wide, the sand is white, and the Caribbean Sea is a turquoise blue that most of us have only seen in postcards.  The sea is speckled with a sail boat or windsurfer now and then, and in the distance is the island of Cozumel; especially at night, the lights of the island on the horizon add something awe-inspiring to the view.

 

The Refreshing Ocean Breeze – Also at night, and somewhat during the day, residents who own beachfront condos will be able to sit on their balcony or rooftop terrace, enjoy a barbecue and feel the refreshing breeze coming of the Caribbean Sea.  While cool breezes might be the furthest from your mind right now, it is a very nice balance to the hot days.

 

Walk-Everywhere Lifestyle – Most of the beachfront locations are within walking distance of almost all services.  Downtown, beachfront condo owners can enjoy walking down Fifth Avenue, a pedestrian walkway lined with bars, restaurants, galleries, gelaterias and shops, which runs parallel to the beachfront.  Walmart and similar stores are also within walking distance.  Those who choose beachfront condos outside of the downtown area will generally be able to enjoy walks or bike rides to golf courses many green areas and along nicely planned bike trails.

 

Rental Potential – In terms of finances, the beachfront offers the advantage of the possibility of bringing income.  When it comes to renting out to vacationers, the beachfront holds the highest appeal for the reasons listed above.  Small groups of vacationers usually look to beachfront condo rentals as a cheaper alternative to paying for hotels.  It also offers them a single, private space to enjoy only with their group.

5 Mistakes to Avoid When Buying a Vacation Property in Mexico

Overall Long-term Value – Since the beachfront is the location of highest appeal, it is generally the location which can be most resilient to price fluctuations.  Generally speaking, the well-to-do are less impacted by economic fluctuations as well and will continue to look for vacation properties even during economic low points, and, of course, the location they will prefer is the beachfront; this factor helps to keep up and improve values.

 

Pricing – While prices are lower back from the beach, compared to just about any beachfront community around the world with this level of lifestyle comfort, prices for beachfront condos in Playa del Carmen are very accessible, especially considering the value factors listed above.

 

While it is definitely worth exploring other location options within Playa del Carmen, the beachfront holds very high appeal, and it is worthwhile for any buyer to consider this location seriously.
