Have you been dreaming for years about retiring in Akumal? Has the time almost come to start thinking about your retirement? Or perhaps its years away but you have begun the beginning stages of planning. Many of our clients start searching retirement homes in the Riviera Maya 5-10 years before they will actually be intending to live in.
Why? Maybe daydreaming that helps them get through the work day, or perhaps they are major planners, or they find that they can take advantage of an investment before retirement.
In any case, if you are truly planning for retirement purposes you should remember to consider what your needs will be by the time you take full time residency in your new home.
We never want to think about getting older, especially when, at heart, we are always young and having fun; but when making a solid financial investment, such as a real estate purchase, it is a good idea to think of what could continue to make our life at ease and stress free later on in the future!
