The state of Yucatan – famous for the colonial city of Merida and the Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza, now one of the New Seven Wonders of the World – has offered a wide variety of real estate types for many tastes, budgets and lifestyles, ranging from old colonial, to beachfront luxury, to countryside ranches. Yet one newer trend that is just beginning to take off is ecological Yucatan properties. There are good indications that this new trend is also a great investment.
Beachfront Properties at Great Prices
While the Yucatan Peninsula continues to offer direct beachfront properties for excellent prices, the areas along the north shore where the ecological beachfront properties are beginning to appear still has even lower prices. The emergence of the Yucatan Peninsula one large fairly unified tourism region points to good potential for future appreciation of such properties.
Excellent Price to Size Ratio
Besides beachfront location and good beachfront lineage, the lots are simply very large. Part of the idea behind the eco-lots is that they are large enough to build and live on comfortably, while still preserving most of the nature. This means that at the going prices, there is also an excellent size-to-price ratio for any location, especially for a properties directly on the beachfront.
Beautiful, Unique Nature
Of course, such properties are in very natural settings; flamingos, hundreds of species of birds and wildlife, lush green jungle, clean air and many similar items are part of day to day life.
Protected Ecological Settings
Many of the areas along the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula are protected natural spaces. Ecological lots can be found that are alongside or very close to protect areas. This means that the nature which provides one of the main value factors will remain intact.
Growth in Ecological Demand
Sustainable lifestyles, green real estate and caring for the environment are items which are becoming more and more important to Americans, Canadians and Europeans. In all likelihood, demand for such real estate will continue to rise over the next decade and beyond. This means increased value.
Close Access to Large Cities and Modern Services
At the same time, ecological lots on Yucatan’s north shore are close to the capital city of Merida, and often to Cancun as well. This means good access to modern shopping, services such as hospitals, golf courses, etc. It also means easy and affordable air access.
It seems fairly clear that this growing trend is not only a good way to show respect for the environment, but also holds great investment potential.
