We all know that real estate markets change and fluctuate; so when it comes to Playa del Carmen real estate, you as a buyer may ask, is now the time to buy, or am I better off waiting?  It’s always a question worth considering, but here are some points to consider about Playa del Carmen beachfront for sale when making this decision.

 

The Playa del Carmen real estate market has shown good resilience – While all markets are affected to some extent by international tides and shifts, Playa del Carmen has shown an interesting amount of reliance to drops in prices.  Typically, appeal has remained high enough that those who have the funds look to the European atmosphere and beautiful beaches of Playa del Carmen as good option even in the worst of times.  This suggests that the value of your property will at the worst hold fairly steady if not increase.

 

New Playa del Carmen condos for sale often offer pre-construction discounts – There is a healthy supply of new condos on the market, available on the beachfront; preconstruction discounts often offer a sort of automatic appreciation as later units are sold for a higher price.  Yet the demand is high enough to keep the market moving.

 

The property may have rental potential – In Playa del Carmen, beachfront property has the highest rental potential.  Even if the property costs a little more, this can easily be balanced out if you are not using the property all year round, and you rent it out to vacationers.  If this is your plan, be sure to inform your agent at the beginning of your search so he can help you select a property with good potential and put you into contact with an expert in rentals.

Mortgages in Mexico make it easier to fit a beachfront condo into your budget – Mortgages mean that you can begin enjoying the lifestyle (and financial) benefits of your condo after only the down payment is made.  Mortgages available in Mexico mean you don’t have to tie up home equity on other properties.

 

The cost of living in Playa del Carmen is always lower – This factor is important when weighing out the financial side of things. Most expenses – from weekly groceries to property taxes to hospital bills – are significantly lower than back home.  These savings begin adding up immediately.

 

In all likelihood, buying sooner will bring your more financial benefits than buying later. Each person has their own personal factors to consider as well, but then again, there are also the lifestyle benefits to consider …
