If you are considering a Mexico home for sale in the TOP Playa del Carmen real estate area, you may wonder what kind of variety there is available.  The following are a few possibilities to consider when searching for Playa del Carmen home for sale.

 

Gated Community Villas – One of the most universally appealing types of homes is that of villas in gated communities.  Villas combine the comfort of a single, private home (privacy, no shared walls, etc.) with the conveniences of a condo-setting – shared green areas, maintenance services, pools, etc.  Beautiful villas in nice communities can be found for prices accessible to most buyers’ budgets.  Some new developments also offer pre-construction discounts.

 

Custom Built Homes – Most of these are also in gated communities.  They are built on individual lots and offer a more unique and individual custom design.  These homes are also ideal for anyone who enjoys the use of a private yard for gardening or landscaping according to their personal tastes.  Of course, these can also include private pools and large terraces.  Many of these are within gated communities, but are also available in the downtown area.

 

Golf Course HomesPlaya del Carmen has been called Latin America’s Golf Capital.  This is because of the 9 excellent courses in the area, many of which are professionally designed.  Homes for sale on golf courses can offer views of the fairways, close access to quality games of golf and the exclusivity and upscale atmosphere associated with gated, golf-course communities.

 

Fixer-Uppers – While Playa del Carmen is fairly new, there are some older communities near downtown along the beachfront.  These communities were originally founded by local workers who built them up little by little; while some areas remain “rough around the edges” other areas have very nice homes, and in general there seem to be signs of gentrification.  Some homes that were well built and have lots of potential for a renovation project can be found for surprisingly prices.  What’s more, they’re very close to both the beach and downtown.

 

Eco-Homes – Near the Playa del Carmen area a growing trend has been to incorporate sustainable practices into home and condo construction.  Some homes can be found that are nearly self-sufficient in energy production and even water treatment.

 

Within each of these examples, there is further variety to explore.  Be sure to ask your agent what kind of variety is available in the style that interests you the most.
