You want to live in Cozumel; you want to own your dream Cozumel property. How can you go about finding that property? The following are different steps/approaches that I have seen buyers take and successfully find their dream property.
While this will definitely not be the final search and will need to be followed up by other kinds of searching, it is definitely a good place to start. Online listings will help you get a feel for the market – a feel for what kind of prices are available, what kinds of properties and which locations. Cozumel is a beautiful island that includes properties in town, Cozumel land for sale in eco-developments and resort properties among others. You can browse this variety and get a feel for what’s out there. Look for good picture galleries, maps and possibly even Google Street View and videos.
When you want to buy a car, you test-drive it to see how it feels. While you usually can’t “try out” the same property you’re buying, you can rent a similar property and get a feel for life in that property style and location – perhaps even in the same complex. This is easily done when you go down to Cozumel to view properties anyway. This way, if you don’t like what you’re renting, you can try something else before you actually commit to buying.
The Walk-Around Search
The town of Cozumel is a picturesque Caribbean town that blends traditional Mexican elements with pure relaxation. There’s nothing like just walking around and finding a neighborhood that you like, or even that perfect condo complex. Of course, you don’t want to spend all your time searching this way, but a relaxing afternoon may work out; bikes are always nice for this too!
An Experienced Agent
This will be the most important step you take in your real estate search. As in most of Mexico, Cozumel has no regulations about who can act as an agent, and who can’t. For this reason, it’s important to do your homework and check qualifications, certificates, experience, professional associations and references. The right agent will guide you through whichever approach to searching you choose and make good suggestions based on your needs. They will also coordinate the viewings to make the most of your time in Cozumel!
Just as you will enjoy your life in Cozumel, enjoy the process of searching for your dream property!
