Playa del Carmen Real Estate – Buying for Retirement

One of the primary reasons people buy Mexico real estate is for retirement.  For this reason, it’s worthwhile for buyers to take their time and choose a property that is both attractive in a general sense and good for retirement specifically.    One of the favorite markets for retirement, Playa del Carmen real estate, shows how Americans and Canadians can choose the property and location best suited for their dream lifestyle and retirement needs.  The following are features which buyers can look for in a property.

 

Quiet, Green Community – Most retirees are ready for a quieter lifestyle, away from the crowds and noise, with green areas, nature and plenty of space.  Playa del Carmen offers many beautiful, green, upscale gated communities which are still very close to shopping and services (not to mention affordable!)

 

Walk-Everywhere Lifestyle – On the other hand, many retirees like the idea of a car-free lifestyle, being able to walk to basic services.  One of the attractive points of Playa del Carmen retirement is that retirees can enjoy the best of both worlds! Besides downtown, a number of gated communities are next to shopping centers.  Taxis are also cheap, making it easier to get around town for those who choose not to own a car.

 

Near the Beach – Playa del Carmen is home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.  Because of the city’s layout, many communities are within comfortable walking distance, even those that are not directly on the beachfront.

 

Elevator – If retirees choose a condo (which is often easier because of the included maintenance) choosing one with an elevator makes it easier to get in and out, especially if the building has underground parking for those who do choose to own a car, or a rooftop lounge area.  Even though there is a limit of 4 stories, it’s still a nice convenience!

 

Ground-floor Garden Condo – On the other hand, there are plenty of complexes with ground-floor units that offer direct access to private yards and larger common areas.

 

Close to Good Hospitals – Good and affordable healthcare is always a necessity.  Playa del Carmen has one large, state-of-the-art hospital and several good smaller ones with accessible prices.

 

Professional Golf – Many retirees enjoy spending more time on the golf course, or taking some time to learn the game for the first time.  Playa del Carmen is ideal, offering a dozen excellent courses and warm-weather all year!

 

While finding the perfect retirement property can be difficult, in Playa del Carmen it becomes much easier, while still being affordable!
