Investing in real estate is one of the best ways to build and secure wealth. However, when purchasing a property, a series of key factors must be analyzed and considered to be successful.

Daniela Alvarado, independent real estate agent, completes the second part of our series of crucial points to consider when investing in real estate in Vallarta · Nayarit, a region with a host of attributes that make it an attractive place to reside or visit.

Key Factors When Investing in Vallarta · Nayarit

Buying Presale

“Depending on what you are looking for, buying a pre-sale property offers many benefits. For example, if what you want is to acquire a property to live in fulltime, buying in the pre-sale stage can guarantee securing a home in a convenient location that better suits your needs.”

“Another great benefit of pre-purchasing is that it ensures a higher return on investment, since property prices increase as construction progresses or as the development or area becomes more popular.”

“As explained in the October 2022 edition of the Vallarta Real Estate Guide, pre-sale purchases can be a decisive factor in making a superior investment.”

Consider Access and Connectivity

“Access and connectivity of real estate are two of the elements that impact the growth of equity value and are often mentioned, so they must be carefully considered. It is very important to note that this is more than just considering what is nearby and how quickly one can access those services or transportation, but they also offer clues on how to make your investment more valuable on the market.”

“For example, if you buy a property near a private hospital, what kind of market do you think would be interested in renting it? Perhaps doctors or specialists and even patients from other places (medical tourism) who will be looking for longer stay accommodations over the course of their treatment. Or it may be the administrative staff who simply want to be closer to their workplace.”

Invest in Lots

“Compared to a property already built, a lot is a piece of land with a lower purchasing cost but is located in an area with a lot of potential. Regardless of whether you decide to build on it or sell it, you will see a higher return due to the added value of the area. Lots can be great buys for those looking to make their first real estate investment, but don’t have the full budget to buy a home.”

“Of course, it is very important to bear in mind tips four and five that we offered in the last edition: Analyze the Market and Observe the Capital Gain. The key to making a good investment is to see beyond what is happening now and look to the future of the market.”

“There is a common belief that you need to be an expert or have a lot of money to invest in real estate, but the reality is different. If what you are looking for is a smaller investment that can still see a nice return, purchasing a lot is a good option.”

Take Amenities into Account

“A property’s amenities also contribute to increasing its value. The desire of residents to enhance their enjoyment and quality of life has motivated real estate developments to consider providing spaces that benefit end users. Here in Vallarta · Nayarit, the most common amenities are heated pools, fully equipped gyms, areas for pets, and 24/7 security.”

“It is advisable to invest in properties that have good amenities, as they will always increase in value. Of course, considering previous points such as the location and capital gains zones, amenities will add more value to the property, especially when they are designed to satisfy the needs of the market.”

Think and Analyze

“We can often fall in love with a property that is, unfortunately, not in an area where it can increase in value. That will end up affecting the investment. Whatever your purchase intention, always think of real estate as a business.”

“Although it is true that real estate is a long-term investment, we should avoid thinking that it is something for life. It is important not to get emotionally attached to it, because that will prevent you from seeing the return on investment that can be obtained.”
