While for the past while there have been high-quality cheap Mexico beachfront lots for sale on the Yucatan for less than $65,000 USD, recently there have been reports of lots for as little as $45,000 USD.
The low prices are exciting for you as a buyer, but you will also want to consider a variety of other factors in the purchase to ensure that an affordable beachfront lot will really suit your needs. If you are thinking about this kind of lot, consider the following factors.
Accessibility – Is there direct access to a highway? How far is the nearest city? One development offers a 45 minute drive to the area's major city, with an international airport, a Walmart, a golf course and marina, and much more.
Beach Quality – While you may not be expecting to get the best beachfront in the world, make sure it's a beach that you can enjoy, and that's beautiful!
Construction – How suitable is the land for construction? The closer to the beach there is suitable land, the better it is for you. The point of buying a lot is to build a home, so it's important to investigate this point.
Permits – Along the same lines as the last point, it is important to make sure you are legally allowed to build, and know what kinds of building are permitted. Also, how long or difficult is it to get permits?
Connections – While living “off the grid" can be an interesting idea for a handful of people, most buyers want to enjoy a few modern luxuries. On your lot, are there connections available for electricity, phone, water and internet? These connections will allow you to convert your cheap Mexico beachfront lot into a comfortable and convenient dream home in Mexico, for vacations or retirement, or into a profitable investment.
Services – There are definitely good and cheap lots available directly on the beach; finding the low-priced areas isn't too difficult, but finding a good lot in an area with a variety of services and activities is a bit trickier. Often emerging tourist areas are ideal for this kind of find, like the state of Campeche on the Yucatan Peninsula.
If you consider this combination of points, and find a well-priced lot that offers a solid check mark beside each one, there's no reason to hesitate in making the move; especially if that lot is less than $50,000 USD!
