  • Sectors/Locations and features
  • Well-qualified and experienced home builders
  • Customer satisfaction measurement and after-sale service
  • ROI and the realities of the rental property business in The Riviera Maya

The brief uncovers relevant data for you to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of your decision making process.

Sectors/Locations and features

The House Price index is the most important variable during this stage that began two years ago. We’ve all heard the phrase “location, location, location” but what does this mean in practical terms when it comes to property prices? Economists encapsulate “location” in something called “hedonic pricing” – for most homes in the Riviera Maya, this translates to some key factors that impact your life and your lifestyle: The distance from the beach, proximity to social, shopping and recreational spots, safety and trend.

The first step of the home buying process in the Riviera Maya is to determine the location. The report begins with the most searched destinations around the Riviera Maya.
