Buying a Playa del Carmen Condo – Checklist for Features

When you decide to buy a Playa del Carmen condo, you are not only buying a new property, but an entire lifestyle defined by the beautiful beaches and modern comfort.  When you choose your property, be sure you find all the features you need to enjoy life in Paradise to its fullest.  The following features are items you can look for.

Close to the beach – The beaches in Playa del Carmen are beautiful; they are definitely among the best in the world, and many well-traveled beach lovers consider them to be the best there are.  While it’s not necessary to be directly on the beachfront, beautiful properties for low prices can be found within walking distance.

 

Gated community – Most American and Canadian buyers prefer one of Playa del Carmen’s gated communities just out of town.  Playa del Carmen is very safe, but gated entrances with manned security add another level of safety.  The limited entrance also reduces traffic, and makes for a quieter lifestyle.  Playa del Carmen’s gated communities tend to be very green and picturesque with features such as bike trails.

 

Pool, Gym, etc. – In the complex where you buy your condo, you can look for features like a pool, a gym and a nice lounge area.  A pleasant visual layout with vegetation and balconies overlooking the common area are also features to put on your checklist.

 

Open-concept design – In Playa del Carmen, the units themselves tend to have a modern open-concept design that includes features like a kitchen bar, large sliding doors leading out to a spacious balcony and large bedrooms with private washrooms and spacious closets.

 

Nice finishes – For a reasonable price, you can expect features like nice tiles, air conditioners, ceiling fans, marble and/or granite counters and similar features.  These will make your unit visually attractive and comfortable for living in right off the bat.

 

Close to downtown/shopping – Playa del Carmen is not large.  You can expect to be within about a 10 minute drive of the shopping and dining of downtown, as well as new shopping malls and large stores like Walmart.  Of course, communities further away are available if you prefer.

 

Low Prices – Prices for nice condos with all the features mentioned above for under $150,000 USD.  Financing both from developers and banks make these low prices even more accessible.

Living well next to the beach is not only a luxury for the rich – at least not in Playa del Carmen.
