PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In an article published recently by CNBC, Senior Editor Mark Koba examines the exploding markets of Mexico real estate for sale in Tulum and the Riviera Maya. To learn more about this emerging superpower and the towns along Mexico's Riviera Maya, CNBC interviewed Sean O'Neal, one of the real estate experts at Investment Properties Mexico, and two of his clients, Kathy and Ken Brady.
O'Neal served as the broker for the Bradys, who purchased their own slice of Tulum Mexico real estate two years ago. This beach town lies along the Caribbean coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, just over an hour south of Cancun. When the couple decided to invest some of their savings, extensive research led them to consider Tulum, where they purchased two hectares of land, which equates to nearly six acres.
A smart buy, considering that Tulum is obviously located in the path of growth. Consider this: In 1970 Cancun had just one hotel, but the city is now home to more than 1 million people. As a result, the population in the region has steadily spread southward, causing Playa del Carmen to be named "The Fastest Growing City in the World" in 2006 by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Considering that Playa is located just over a half hour north of Tulum, it's easy to see why real estate here seems destined to be a hot commodity. In addition, Tulum has been chosen as the site of the new Riviera Maya International Airport, which will help to make the region even more accessible and dramatically reduce transfer times from Cancun and Cozumel.
Couples like the Bradys are quickly growing in number throughout Mexico and the Riviera Maya, thanks in part to the fact that Mexico real estate avoided the severe real estate crash experienced in the U.S. and other countries following the global economic crisis in 2008 and 2009. But the really good news is that prices in Mexico are still low enough to provide plenty of upside potential for buyers.
