One of the best features of Mexico real estate is the large variety of properties in offers for just about any price range. Playa del Carmen real estate is no exception. The following is a small sample of what you can find for $150,000 USD.
Golf Course Condo – Puerto Aventuras
This beautiful condo offers 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, and one guest bathroom, in 110 square meters of livings space (about 1200 sq. ft. ) The complex is currently in the pre-construction phase, and for this reason the units are being offered at this incredibly low price – the least expensive in Puerto Aventuras. Puerto Aventuras is a gated community about 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, and offers a full set of services, more like a town in itself. These services include a marina, golf, a shopping mall, a swim-with-the-dolphins, a school and a church. This is one of Playa del Carmen's finest upscale communities.
Gated Community Villa – El Cielo
This condo likewise offers 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a slightly larger living area of 145 sq. mt. (about 1600 sq. ft. ) It is located closer to the city center – about a 10 minute drive – and offers slightly more space for the price, since it is located in a new community which is still under development. The roads, bike trail and beach access (about half a mile) are already in place. The value of this kind of villa is sure to rise as the community continues to develop; building regulations ensure that the atmosphere will be upscale and elegant, even though the prices are currently very accessible.
Home in Gentrifying Community
While this home offers one bedroom and one bathroom, it is much larger with 200 sq. mt. of construction (about 2200 sq. ft. ) and is on a large lot. It is located only minutes from downtown and the famous Fifth Avenue shopping and dining area, and a very short walk from the beach (3 blocks). The community has been, up until very recently, an entirely working class neighborhood. Recently, more working class Mexicans and a number of expats have been buying fixer-upper homes with good design, excellent construction, and lots of potential to convert them into their dream home. With new hotels going in along the beachfront, it's only a matter of time until this area becomes more gentrified.
