Real estate experts of the region affirm that real estate investments in safe and rapid-growing places such as the Riviera Maya can generate ROI over 20% in the year following the acquisition. However, this highly depends on the location, property type and development reliability.

This way, the zone can become a focus point for investors looking for alternatives to keep their capital safe and generate big ROI. The Residential segment is the most convenient because it’s the better valued, registering a larger assessment and stability in the real estate market due to its characteristics and aggregated value.”
