When you begin your Playa del Carmen real estate search, you will probably begin your search online.  There are many Playa del Carmen MLS listing services available, but some are better than others.  Looking for the following features will help you find a listing service that will make the most of your time and probably lead to a better final result – finding the ideal property for the best price.

Thorough – The more properties you have available to search through on your Mexico MLS listing, the more likely you are to find that ideal one for the right price.  There are plenty of properties (condos, homes and lots) available in Playa on the beachfront, on golf courses, in gated communities and in many other locations; the listings you use should reflect this variety as well.


Well Organized – When you begin looking through the listings, it should be clear what order they are in and how you can get to price range or property type that you are most interested in.  Least expensive to most expensive is usually the default.


Sort & Search Options – You should also have options to sort the properties in a different order, view only one type of property or location style and search according to specific criteria you have.


Prepared by Professionals – While you may think listings are listings, it helps to use a service where the properties are selected by experienced agents who will pre-screen properties ensuring that they are only the most suitable for American or Canadian buyers.


Good Descriptions – Each property should include a good description; this can be fairly brief, but should give all basic information such as size, property type and general location.


Photo Galleries – A picture is worth a thousand words, and it really helps you in your preliminary selection process to be able to see various views of the property, inside and outside, especially since you’re pretty far away from Playa and you can’t just stop by on the weekend to take a peek!


Videos – If a picture is worth a thousand words, than a video is worth a thousand pictures.  Not all properties will have videos, but especially spotlight properties should.


Maps – Even if you don’t know Playa well, a map will help you compare location between properties and get a feel for which communities are most appealing.

Finding the right MLS listing will help you get your Playa del Carmen real estate search off to the right start.
