5 Reasons You Should Invest in Tulum Real Estate Right Now

The white-sand beaches, ancient Mayan history, and culture here in Tulum are some of the main draw factors to why you should invest in Tulum real estate right now. Not to mention that the real estate market in the Mayan Riviera is pumping and many people from all over the world are drawn to this area.

Tulum Real Estate - Cenotes are found in Tulum

The Cancun International Airport in the Mayan Riviera is situated only 1.5 hours from the heart of Tulum and only 45 minutes to the outskirts of Playa del Carmen. With an international airport being so close you can book last minute flights back home or easily pick up guests at any time. Let’s dive deeper into what those main reasons are that you should invest in Tulum right now without delay.

1. The time is now
2. The location is prime
3. Large equity gains
4. Many eco-friendly developments
5. The market is trying to tell you something

The time for Tulum Real Estate is now:

There is no better time than the present to invest in real estate in Tulum. The longer you procrastinate, the less money you can potentially make if you are purchasing your property as an income property. With the way the market is heading and the number of properties that are being purchased in the Mayan Riviera by investors, you will want to get your hands on one before it’s too late.

Think retirement. Whether you are purchasing a property for your retirement or not, down the road you can have it paid off and not have to worry about it. The rental market is prime in Tulum right now as it is a hot destination for travelers all over the world.

Tulum is in a prime location:

I previously mentioned about the international airport in Cancun and how Tulum is in close proximity to it. This is definitely a selling feature and a way to attract potential renters to your property. People don’t want to have to travel for many hours in order to reach their destination. However, Tulum is close enough that it is ideal but yet it is far enough away from the city life that they have their full Zen-experience. Tulum is a place to relax but you can also enjoy some cocktails and dancing in the evenings. It offers the best of both worlds.

Large equity gains:

There are large equity gains that can be made in Tulum due to supply and demand. There is more demand than supply right now, which goes to show how popular Tulum is becoming. Demand drives real estate prices up, which is another reason why buying pre-construction is a good idea and will save you money.

Did you know that Tulum was at a 100% occupancy rate in 2016 and 2017 throughout the high season? For investors who are looking at buying an income property, these are the statistics you want to see. There was close to an 8% increase of international visitors last summer in the Riviera Maya in 2018. People are not only flocking to Tulum to escape the winter, but they are also moving here and visiting all year-round.

Tons of eco-friendly developments are being built:

As you are probably aware, Tulum is an eco-friendly beach town that is looking to be self-sustainable. With all the eco-friendly developments that are being built as we speak, there will be many up and coming opportunities to purchase real estate in the later 2019. If you can purchase an eco-friendly development, why wouldn’t you? You then are working towards making a difference in the environment in Tulum and all over the world.

Listen to the market:

It’s important to listen to the market and look at the different market trends. Trends don’t lie and you can grasp a lot of information by comparing the market trends over the years. Especially in Tulum, Tulum has grown exponentially and continues to attract investors who are eco-conscious and want to invest in a location that is laidback, yet glamorous.

Benefits of buying a Re-Sale Property

We can show you any property that interests you in the Riviera Maya. There is no need to look with many agencies. We will show you any pre-construction new condo project, and any already built properties.
Most important is to find the right property, at the right price for you.
Often we see that resale properties, already built, are overlooked by our investors in favor of a buying pre-construction property.
Why?
Many people are pre-sold on the belief that pre-construction is “the best deal” out there.
However, this can often be a misconception. The savvy buyer understands the following:

  • There are great deals available on resale properties. Prices often can be lower than a pre-construction property.
  • It’s our specialty to know and show you the market.
  • Use of escrow when paying for a property means funds are protected.
  • No risk of paying a developer directly who might not complete a pre-construction project.
  • You know what you are buying, such as the condition, the colors, the appliances, etc.
  • With pre-construction properties, what if it does not turn out the way you thought?
  • Often resale properties are fully furnished, as added value.
  • Buying furniture can be considerably more expensive than anticipated for new construction.
  • Resale is ready for immediate personal use.
  • There is no waiting period for construction to finish as with pre-construction.
  • It has the HOA (homeowners association) established, you will know the cost of maintenance, pool work, yard work before you negotiate on the transaction.
  • It has a property tax value established.
  • You purchase in an established neighborhood. You know what is around you.
  • Streets, lights, neighborhood parks, and restaurants are established.
  • Resales offer a shorter timeline to close on the transaction,  get the deed from the
    notary and you get the keys. NO waiting time for those important items.
  • Bring your suitcase and open a cerveza. Turn-key ready.
  • You KNOW what you are buying. No mystery involved.

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A RESALE:

  • You will have to pay for it all time of purchase upfront, no payment plans.
  • You might want to renovate to your liking.
  • Hidden cost upgrades? Use Property inspection.
