Playa Del Carmen, Mexico (PressExposure) October 23, 2009 -- As a small town with clear plans for infrastructure development, Tulum Real Estate currently offers some excellent opportunities for land investment. Aldea Zama, located downtown Tulum, is a prime example of these opportunities. Recently TOPMexicoRealEstate.com Interviewed the first couple, Mark and Linda, to receive their Aldea Zama lot. The couple showed a high level of satisfaction with the process of purchasing with Aldea Zama, talking about the draw of Tulum's natural setting, and their future plans - both for building and lifestyle.
The couple began the interview by telling TOPMexicoRealEstate about their satisfaction with the processes involved in the real estate transaction. The couple described the process of Aldea Zama as "efficient, simple and easy." The process of preparing the paperwork and documentation while they were in the U.S., their home country, was also described as simple, with everything ready when they arrived, so all they had to do was sign.
"They were always on time and as soon as we arrived we went down to sign the papers," explained Linda. "We had a very good experience and no problems of any kind."
The interview followed with a discussion about their reasons for choosing to buy Tulum Real Estate. Mark and Linda named several factors which drew them to purchase in Tulum, including the fact this it is not over developed - there is still a very natural environment, and Tulum still only has a population of 30,000, and Linda described the town as "more laid-back" and "less stressful," comparing it to Washington D.C., and the stressful lifestyle that many Americans experience day to day. At the same time, a direct 3 hour flight home from the nearby Cancun International Airport, will offer the couple convenient travel to and from their new Tulum home.
The couple also mentioned the beautiful, turquoise blue beaches, and the type of development which has been planned for the area, referring to the town center, the roads and the sidewalks for easy access to the town center and the beach.
"We liked the description of the development," said Mark. "We thought it would have the kinds of things we'd be interested in."
All of these factors together also pointed to a good investment opportunity; Tulum land currently offers a great potential for investment, which served as another factor in their decision.
Although Mark and Linda pointed out that they are not entirely sure when they would begin building - it would be when they reached a point in their careers that they could take a few months off every winter - the couple already has a vision for their future home. Their idea is to build a home with a "modern but rustic look" using materials such as stone and wood.
"We like the very clean, natural contemporary style that they do down here in Mexico," explained Mark. "Modern, but rustic materials, used in a new way."
Linda added that they would want a pool and a garden, with a natural atmosphere.
In keeping with the contrast Linda had made to Washington D.C., when the couple begins their life in Tulum, they plan to live a relaxed, "more retired" lifestyle. Linda, for example, is a yoga instructor, and hopes to continue with yoga sessions in her new Tulum home.
"I could see something like that continuing over the winters when we're down here," said Linda, "having friends visit, or doing Yoga retreats, that type of thing."
