When buyers consider investing Mexico real estate, especially one of the thriving markets like Playa del Carmen real estate, one of the first questions that comes to mind is safety; not only safety in day to day life, but also financial and economic safety. The good news is that Mexico offers a high level of safety in all three areas.
Despite large-scale out-of-context news stories about Mexico, the country is actually quite secure when it comes to personal safety. With the right team of professionals, a real estate buyer can also enjoy a high level of financial safety, likewise through very modernized and organized banking systems.
More recently, however, the government of Mexico has been working hard to develop and guarantee economic safety for investors, as well as its residents. In February of 2011, the government guaranteed that there is no risk of relapse for the Mexican economy, and that private groups are expecting a growth of 4.5 to 5%.
It is especially important that Mexico is seen as a safe country in the economic sphere by large international corporations, who feel that the government of President Felipe Calderon is taking the right steps to combat drug trafficking – one of the largest concerns for both personal safety (although it rarely has any effect on individuals not involved in those circles) and on economic stability. Recent international commentators have felt that although the war on drugs has increased confrontations at the moment, that current operations will pay off in the long term, greatly reducing the strength of the cartels involved.
For this reason large corporations are investing in Mexico with a high level of confidence. Those considering Playa del Carmen real estate can do the same.
While the drug-related conflicts have been very distant from locations like Playa del Carmen, and the area has seen some of the best economic growth and stability, those who invest now will likewise see noticeable benefits as Mexico's economy continues to grow, and the long-term benefits of President's Calderon's war on drugs become apparent, more buyers will become comfortable with the idea of owning a vacation property in Mexico. This means values will rise.
Currently, analysts consider that in 2012 the growth of the Mexican economy will continue strong, because there are currently many strategic infrastructure projects underway; the international financial markets are also recovering, which will facilitate the financing of the plans of both infrastructure and the development of private investment.
If you're hesitating, it's good to take your time, and make a careful well-informed decision. Talk to a Mexico agent, and arrange to come and see the lots for yourself. Ask as many questions as you can. But don't take too much time; Campeche's cheap Mexico beachfront lots probably won't fall into the “cheap" category a couple of years from now!
