Top 5 Reasons to Buy Playa del Carmen Real Estate

Why buy Playa del Carmen Real Estate? Here are some of the top reasons to buy a property in one of the world's favorite beachfront locations, both for tourists and for international real estate buyers.

 

1. Beautiful beachfront

 

The beaches in Playa del Carmen are considered by many to be the most beautiful in the world. They are wide, soft, white and the clear, turquoise water is warm. There is an ongoing program to protect and maintain the beachfront; a recent project left beaches as wide as 330 ft in some places! Whether you buy a beachfront condo with an amazing view, or modest home back from the beach, Playa del Carmen's urban design has left easy beachfront access for all residents; just a relaxing 5 or 10 minute walk past the famous Fifth Avenue will get you to the beach from just about any part of town.

 

2. Retirement

 

While many baby boomers are concerned about the expense of health care and retirement in the U.S., Playa del Carmen offers a cost of living that is very accessible in comparison, and high quality, modern health care at much lower prices. There are also many activities in the area, ranging from live jazz concerts, to golf, to relaxing in a nice cafe. Playa del Carmen properties can also be rented for to vacationers before the big day comes to serve as an income, and, in some cases, can be included in a retirement savings plan portfolio.

3. Invest and Earn money

 

Whether you are re-locating to Playa del Carmen for retirement or you can already imagine your life on the beach, it's possible to earn money while you live in Mexico. While Playa del Carmen real estate itself can serve as an investment income – either through rental, or through resale of improved properties – there are many other ways to earn money living on the beachfront; owning a franchise, working over the internet, or working for an international company that works in Playa del Carmen are only a few examples.

4. Super Tourism

 

Perhaps you like to see yourself as a tourist, or perhaps you're one of those Americans or Canadians who avoids taking out your map or camera in public, and tries to find the local secrets; in either case, Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area have many places to visit and gems to discover. Also, the fact that Playa del Carmen is one of the favorites for visitors in Mexico and the Caribbean means that there are many activities available, and that investment both from the government and private sector will keep pouring in; new highway bridges and a new international airport nearby are a couple of examples of the large scale investment taking place here to make life more convenient.

 

5. Excellent Properties, Excellent Prices

 

Last but not least, the properties available in Playa del Carmen are priced very reasonably, considering the strength of the location and the high-quality lifestyle to be found here. New beachfront properties are well designed and well constructed with contemporary elegance; re-sale properties can be found in a variety of designs and prices. If you have $500,000 for a beachfront condo, they will be well invested in Playa del Carmen; if you have less, you can find many very worthwhile properties for a fraction of this price.
