Merida Yucatan – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingAn emerging personal finance trend has seen retirees and people in pre-retirement making investments in foreign real estate, especially in emerging markets. The potential benefits are very enticing; these regions are seeing growth and appreciation rates that exceed those in domestic markets, and there’s built-in potential for generating income by renting the property to vacationers. Best of all, you can live there yourself during the cold-weather months and say goodbye to winter for the rest of your life!

Yucatan is considered by many to be one of Mexico’s “hidden gems.” However, this is slowly beginning to change, as more vacationers, expatriates and retirees are discovering its many charms.
 
As an investor, this is good news for you. The region has been seeing excellent property appreciation rates for several years running, with no signs of slowing down. In fact, many experts believe local real estate appreciation rates will actually continue to rise, since there have been major infrastructure improvements and roads to hidden beachfront villages, with more on the way.
 
Factor in year-round perfect weather and world-renowned beaches, and you’ve got a winning recipe for an excellent Mexico real estate investment.
