When most people imagine a condo in Playa del Carmen they think of luxury on the beachfront with luxury prices. The good news for buyers on a lower budget is that cheap Mexico real estate is available in Playa del Carmen, while still offering the relaxation, services, warm-weather and high quality of life, not to mention close proximity to the beachfront. Several examples of Playa del Carmen condos for sale at less than $150,000 will demonstrate this point well.
One prime example is what may be the cheapest condo available in Playacar, Playa del Carmen's original upscale gated neighborhood. This well kept-up 2 bedroom unit includes 2 bathrooms with a jacuzzi, specially designed cypress kitchen cupboards and closets in the bedroom, a balcony overlooking the complex's poolside yard, and, overall, high-quality fixtures and finishing from the current owner's investment. The current owner's family outgrew the condo, and has already relocated to a new one, and so it is an urgent sale.
The asking price is only $125,000; condos in neighboring units are selling at about $140,000 (still well worth the price, after this one sells). Throughout Playacar, it is unlikely that buyers will find a unit cheaper than this one. This unit is near the west entrance of the community, and within walking distance to a Sam's Club, a new mall with a large-screen movie theater and a golf course. The north entrance to the community is very close to Playa del Carmen's famous 5th Avenue, a nice, outdoor shopping center and the beachfront. The north enterance is about a 5 -10 minute bike ride away – bike trails run along Playacar's main roads. The streets in the community are tree-lined, quiet and safe.
Heading downtown, a cozy, 1 bedroom condo about 3 blocks from the beach can be found for as low as $105,000 U. S. While these units are not in the tree-lined, gated community of Playacar, they enjoy the convenience of being downtown, only a short walk from both 5th Avenue and the beach. Also nearby is a Walmart, many restaurants and a complete range of services.
For those who prefer a resort community outside of town, in Coral Maya, for example, an elegant new 2 bedroom condo can be found for as low as $105,000. This type of community provides a relaxing, quiet neighborhood, away from town, in new, modern atmosphere, with close access to nature and to Playa del Carmen's beaches.
While these condo's are not directly on the beachfront, each example is only a short distance away, often only a comfortable walk. They are also close to many other services and conveniences, and are available for a much more accessible price than Playa del Carmen's well-developed reputation leads many to believe.
