Mexico Real Estate Expert’s Tip – Have You Considered Land in Playa del Carmen?

One of the beauties of Mexico real estate is that there are always surprising markets, locations and property types that buyers often don’t consider, but at a closer look are attractive for various reasons.  One of these markets is Playa del Carmen land for sale; the following are some solid reasons why you should consider this property type in this high-profile location.

 

Good Prices

Prices for nice, spacious lots in good locations can start below $60,000 USD (as of 2012.) Compared to beachfront locations in the U.S. and in many other parts of the world, it would be impossible to get a lot that matched this description for anywhere near this price.  Compared to buying a home or condos, this option also allows you to invest little by little, first buying the lot, then investing in design, then construction and finally finishing touches like a pool or a gazebo can be added at a later date.  The value of the finished product will be higher than what you actually invest into it.

Custom Home Design

Like a lot anywhere, you as a buyer have the option of having a custom home built suited exactly to your needs and tastes.  There are expert builders in Playa del Carmen who have good systems established for providing updates, pictures and spending reports for the entire construction process online, ensuring a high-quality finished product for very attractive prices.

 

Investment Potential

While the excitement about land usually fades throughout a real estate boom, Playa del Carmen real estate continues to be one of the fastest growing markets with exciting new opportunities – many of which most Americans and Canadians simply ignore.  There are new upscale land developments in important new residential and commercial areas that will be very central as the city continues to grow. There are also lots for sale in old working class communities next to downtown, and a 5 minute walk from the beach that show promise of gentrification.

 

Variety of Locations

Besides the locations already mentioned, there are lots in new gated communities near the beach, golf course developments and on the “other side” of the highway.  Some areas don’t catch people’s attention right away, but have either good investment potential or good lifestyle appeal (or sometimes both!)

 

Take some time to consider land in Playa del Carmen; browse listings, compare prices and ask an agent about construction, lifestyle and investment.  You may be surprised!
