Real estate in Mexico offers many excellent investment opportunities, not the least of those being Mexico land for sale. Yet, there are a handful of opportunities which any interested investor and even more casual buyers should not overlook; one of these is Tulum real estate, and more specifically, Tulum land for sale.
The following are some of the reasons why land for sale in Tulum presents an exceptional real estate investment opportunity.
Tulum’s Real Estate Boom is On the Way
If there has ever been a good case to see a “domino effect” happening, it’s been on the Mexican Caribbean. Starting just over 40 years ago with the creation of Cancun as Mexico’s first planned resort community, tourism eventually grew into a real estate boom for expats looking for a dream home on the beach. During the 80s and 90s The tourism “dominos” followed closely by real estate booms headed south to Cozumel and Playa del Carmen, which is currently thriving in its growing tourism and real estate. All eyes are now looking to the next town in line, which is Tulum, and the signs are already beginning.
Tulum Offers Something Unique
Within this context, it is important that each area offers a unique atmosphere and style; Tulum’s offer for vacationers on the Caribbean and North American expats is a focus on nature and sustainability. This direction was established early on through Tulum’s eco-hotel strip, and is now shaping the blossoming real estate market. Buyers can choose anything from off-the-grid lots in developments that use all natural and local materials for infrastructure to modern, luxury complexes that use sustainable concepts in such a way that they have no effect on day to day life.
A New International Airport is in the Plans
While the area is currently very well served by the Cancun International Airport, a very well-connected airport which is about 1.5 hours away from Tulum, there are also plans for a new international airport in Tulum itself that will serve the southern part of the Mexican Caribbean, which is expected to follow Tulum in the above-mentioned domino effect in the near future. When this airport materializes, many experts expect everything will take off; higher tourism, more growth, higher demand for real estate, and, of course, significant rises in land values.
More Services are Beginning to Appear
As mentioned, signs of the boom are already taking shape. While the option is out there, there is no need for land buyers to invest in a lot 10 miles into the jungle; excellent lots are available on well-planned road networks with urban infrastructure and utilities. Services like Walmart and similar large stores are also on the way. The basics for a comfortable lifestyle are already in place, which is important security for land investors. It can only be expected that more will appear.
Playa del Carmen and Cancun are Just Down the Road
Investors who buy now are banking somewhat on more appearing – more services, more demand, more development, etc. Yet, what makes a land investment in Tulum a secure choice is that it is within very close proximity to a full range of established, modern services. Playa del Carmen is about 1 hour away, and the city of Cancun is about 1 hour 45 minutes. Here, residents can already find state-of-the-art hospitals, a variety of modern stores, shopping malls, movie theaters, golf courses, etc. This protects the value of real estate in Tulum since it already holds appeal.
Prices are Still Low
Of course, it’s important that prices are still low and very accessible.
Considering the last two points, it’s very attractive to buy in Tulum now before the boom fully gets underway, whether for personal enjoyment or for investment purposes.
