Have you ever invested in real estate? I don't mean BUY real estate, I mean INVEST, where you actually see a return and make money.
There are a lot of different complaints and excuses from those of us with lower-middle incomes, like big-time real estate investment is controlled by and only accessible to the rich. But here's a little secret; you don't have to be rich to invest in real estate and make money doing it.
One development of cheap Mexico beachfront lots on the Yucatan Peninsula is a great example. How much could you come up with to make your real estate investment? $65,000 USD?
One of these lots for this price could be your key to making a real property investment, not to mention owning a great beachfront home. These lots have 66 feet of beachfront, with soft, white sand. The beaches are still virgin, with sea-weed washed up from the ocean. They back onto a large lagoon, with lots of wildlife, including dolphins and pelicans. Each lot also has access to a federal highway, where there are connections for all basic services. The lots are raised only a few meters back from the beach and are have ideal building conditions. Building permits are available.
How are going to make money off this cheap Mexico beachfront lot? Start by building a home. A nice stylish home of about 1500 sq. ft. can be built for about $100,000 USD more. If you don't have this cash available at the moment, you can make your investment step by step, giving yourself time to accumulate funds.
After the home how much have you invested? Lot plus construction is $165,000 USD, plus any other costs in closing, etc. you will still be below $180,000 USD - imagine a beautiful beachfront home for below $180,000! This is unheard of in the U. S. and even in most parts of Mexico.
You've probably wondered where these lots are and why they're so cheap. They are in the state of Campeche on the west side of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, “across" from the established destinations of Cancun, Playa del Carmen, etc, about 5-6 hours away. Campeche, like it's neighbors to the east is rich in nature, beaches and Mayan ruins. Unlike those places, it also has a colonial city, also called Campeche, directly on the waterfront. Most visitors will say it's the most beautiful colonial city they've visited.
Tourism is taking off. Campeche has recently heavily invested into maintaining the city, and towns along the beachfront are building boardwalks and developing their waterfront. Campeche real estate is also taking off; new golf courses and marinas are beginning to appear with upscale condo developments, selling for around $500,000.
Campeche is where the Playa del Carmen – Tulum area was about 10 years ago (with the advantage of a colonial city. ) Homes on beachfront lots like these ones over there are selling for around $850,000 - $1,200,000 USD.
