Playa del Carmen Retirement – Finding Your Dream Home in a Beautiful Community

When you choose a Playa del Carmen retirement, you are choosing a wonderful, low-cost lifestyle that allows you to be healthy, relaxed and comfortable with your finances.  One of the most important steps you will take is to find the ideal Playa del Carmen home for sale in a nice community that is suitable for your lifestyle.  The following are some tips you can follow to help you in this process.

 

Consider a variety of locations

Many retirees who consider Playa del Carmen have come on vacations already and have fallen in love with the upscale community of Playacar right next to downtown, for example, or the convenience and European lifestyle of downtown itself.  While these two are fabulous retirement choices, it’s to your advantage to consider communities you might not be familiar with.  Other great options include the gated marina & golf community of Puerto Aventuras or the small town of Puerto Morelos.

Consider buying land

Playa del Carmen land for sale is one of the most overlooked property types in the area.  There are very nice options available on new golf courses, as well as in gated communities in up-and-coming parts of the city.   If you buy land, you can have your dream home built exactly the way you want it.

Explore financing options

While added debt during retirement is the last thing that you want, financing options are becoming more common in Mexico, and can help you make that difference between buying a home you are content with and one that is the home of your dreams.  Especially if you are still working your way to retirement, you might use short-term financing to help you fit the property into your monthly budget and have it paid off and ready to use when the big day comes.

Look for price reductions & other deals

While this may seem like a given, it’s important to consider how much flexibility you have in location, style and choice.  The more flexibility you have, the more likely you are to find an opportunity for significant savings.

Find the right agent

This point is last, but certainly not least.  An agent who is qualified, experienced and committed to your needs as a buyer will present you with the properties they feel are most suitable and will have the know-how to find these.

Finally, just remember basic points like not rushing your decision and using common sense in the purchasing process.  Keep these points in mind, and soon you will be enjoying retirement in Paradise in your dream home!
