Yucatan Real Estate – Why Not Consider a Colonial Home?

One of Mexico’s most unique and interesting real estate options is that of a colonial Mexico home for sale.  One of the best places to consider this option is the Yucatan real estate area.  The following are some of the benefits of buying and owning a colonial Yucatan home for sale.

Low Prices

Prices for all real estate in Yucatan are very low both in terms of “what you get for your money” and in absolute terms, offering good real estate options to buyers of just about any budget.  This is true of colonial homes in the Yucatan’s capital city, Merida.  On one hand, there are fully restored large colonials that make for an excellent option for someone on a mid-range budget; on the other hand, a fixer-upper is within reach on a very low budget, and offers an interesting project for those who enjoy renovations.  It’s also worth noting that the cost of living is very low.

Classic Charm

Of course, the main reason for buying a home like this is the traditional Mexican style.  There’s something to be said for the idea that your surroundings make a large difference in how relaxed you are.  Beautifully painted facades, large wooden doors, courtyards, fountains, colorful flowers, large ceilings – these all come from people whose very way of life is relaxation.  Why not learn to live in relaxation the way people in Yucatan have known for hundreds of years?

Walk-Everywhere Lifestyle

Downtown Merida is the second largest colonial city center in Mexico, but at the same time residents can easily get around walking, going out to parks, local markets, restaurants, cafes, galleries, museums and much more.   Just walking around in a place where beautiful old architecture and living culture go hand in hand is a pleasant way to spend any part of any day.

Warm Weather

All of this is much more pleasant and easier to enjoy all year round; the weather is warm and sunny all year, and residents can enjoy walking around Merida, immersed in its colonial charm, comfortably.

Good Investment

Tourism in Mexico is growing, and so is the exposure of the real estate market to affluent international buyers.  Beautiful places like Merida are sure to be noticed as people from around the world discover the lure of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Buying a colonial home in Merida, Yucatan offers both benefits of the home itself and benefits of the surrounding city. Why not consider this for your warm weather lifestyle?
