Less Hassle, More In Your Pocket, Peace Of Mind…

When selling your Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Akumal, Puerto Aventuras or Puerto Morelos property, make your decision on what’s right for you based on these 3 important factors.

  1. The true costs: Often times people look at the commissions for an agent as a necessary evil to sell your home. But, when you partner with the right Riviera Maya real estate agents, that agent is the expert in your corner to protect your best interests. If a property takes longer to sell, a buyer backs out, you misstep because of a mistake in the contract that could cost you money, paying buyers agent commissions… all of those things add up to the true cost of selling your house.
  2. Your time commitment: Do you want to be (and have the time to be) heavily involved in all aspects of selling the property from afar? From marketing to taking calls from buyers, to showings and more? All so you can save 2 or 3% on the sale. Just calculate what your time and energy are worth and where you should best focus your time. If you’d rather not hassle with the details of your house sale, work with a trusted agent like Mexico Real Estate Solutions.
  3. The “experience factor”: There are hangups that can throw your closing off or cost you thousands. We help you avoid those and we deal with them for you.
