The Tulum Real Estate investment market has been rated as the #2 market in the world in 2014 by International Living and Agora Publishing.
If you are considering an international move and follow International Living you probably know they keep a pretty close eye on foreign Real Estate and emerging markets. Tulum has been under the radar with Cancun and Playa del Carmen taking most of the spotlight for the last few decades, but that has changed recently in a big way.
July, 2014: “Right now Tulum is a little pocket of opportunity with an unstoppable path of progress rolling down the coast from Cancun. New roads, bridges, and a government program are designed to more than triple tourist numbers. Unstoppable North American demographic trends mean that more and more baby boomers will want to live somewhere sunny, safe, affordable, convenient, and with First-World amenities south of the border.
Mexico’s fast-growing new middle class is also becoming a serious driver here. Today the young and ambitious choose to stay and build a career or business here rather than move to the U.S. Many of them are being attracted to the Tulum area. They all need somewhere to live.
Permitting regulations mean that Tulum will stay special. It’s attracting and will continue to attract the savvy and sophisticated. Tulum will stay high-end boutique.”
Times Are Changing in Tulum Real Estate
In 2008 there was a strong push for an international airport in Tulum, which sent Tulum Real Estate prices skyrocketing. Those plans fell flat with an extended bidding process and the world economy slumping.
The international airport in Tulum is still something that city planners and politicians alike will tell you is going to happen and it probably will. It’s a matter of timing at this point, as all would agree, Tulum is the crowned jewel of the Riviera Maya, and there are big plans for the future of the once sleepy Mexican Caribbean village.
For a U.S. comparison, think Mexico’s version of Vail or Aspen in 1972….Tulum is “special.”
We have seen first hand the dramatic changes happening in just the past 7 years. Tulum became a municipal, a city with it’s own growing tax base. We saw the addition of street signs in the town, the 2 lane highway become a 4-lane highway, a new big American style grocery store, major residential projects, eco-communities and countless new commercial properties popping up all over the place. Underground water and power utilities are now being used in many new construction projects and the city has upgraded the water treatment system.
New international businesses are everywhere and foreign investment is flourishing.
For those of you who are somewhat familiar with Tulum, the beach road still has a distinctively bohemian feel. However, the “jungle side” just a few years ago, used to be ALL jungle. The beach road jungle is now peppered with high-end clothing boutiques, restaurants, spas and eclectic shopping options. For better or worse we are on the verge (I would estimate in 3 years or less) of seeing the beach road closed to car traffic and starting to look a lot more like Playa del Carmen’s 5th Avenue.
There’s a Reason
The Real Estate Market in Tulum is a HOT Buyers Market Right Now!
Over the next few years, new roads will be cut to the beach from town and those areas of land are going to be the future of growth and potentially very lucrative investment. That’s just one option. The sleepy fishing village days in Tulum are winding down and savvy international Tulum Real Estate investors are waking up and sizing up this corner of the world. Tulum is a majestic, recently-discovered Mexi-Caribbean jewel, only a 3 hour flight from most US cities.
The postcards don’t lie, the unspoiled beaches dotted with small eco-chic cabana resorts are wide, white and powdery, set against turquoise blue Caribbean waters, a setting of truly sublime natural beauty.
Thick lush jungle filled with monkeys, exotic wildlife and tropical birds; Mayan ruins dot the peninsula which is also home to the largest underground river system in the world. “Magical” is the word most often used to describe Tulum.
Buying Real Estate in a place like Tulum offers you a wide variety of options ranging from luxurious beach front homes (North of Tulum on Tanka or Soliman Bays), to condos and casitas in town, golf course living, planned communities and jungle lots off the beaten path.
There are Tulum Eco-communities off the grid and beach front land in nature preserves where building is restricted to native materials.””>

Density, building restrictions, clear title and infrastructure are critical issues to consider when buying in the Tulum area.

Benefits of Our Tulum Buyers Agent Service
As a buyers agent we work for you, the buyer. That means we are focused on showing you properties that you want to see, not the ones the Realtor wants to show.
It also means you have a team behind you to back you up in negotiation and with the due diligence of buying property in Tulum….above and beyond the typical Realtor services.
When you buy Real Estate through a typical Realtor in the Tulum area, their job is effectively done when you have made your deposit.
Sure, they will be there at closing, but for the most part once you have made the decision to buy, your good Realtor will provide you a list of attorneys, Notarios and banks that you will need to contact to complete your investment.
You will typically need those professional services for title research and to get your trust established, plus handle any private contracts between you and the seller.
Buying Real Estate in Mexico, especially with a trust is much different than in the U.S. We would all like to trust our Realtor to make sure title is good, but you should also insist a third party verify it as well…especially in Mexico.
With our Tulum Buyers Agent Service…
You Get All of Those Typically “Not Included” Services Included.
We are with you throughout the entire process and will guide you through the sometimes confusing issues before and after the sale until you have received your title.
We add more value by getting you on the fast track to living like a local with plenty of tips and local resource contacts, including introductions to other expats that have already done the same thing! We show you the real-life aspects of daily life in Tulum and the surrounding areas. If nothing else we are passionate about sharing Tulum and are very familiar with the lifestyle options.
We provide added value services to give you peace of mind throughout the process like private binding contacts between you and the seller, so that you are always on the same page…literally, terms and timing are clearly spelled out.
Title research, trust, paperwork assistance, translation services, power of attorney and closing schedules are some of the other details we handle for you.
