1. Decide: For Personal Use or an Investment – or both?

The first thing you need to consider is if you are buying for your own personal use or for investment. You can have the best of both worlds. Meaning you can use your vacation home and rent your property to help cover some of the costs.

Secluded home in Tulum may be what you want for you and your family. But if you are buying for investment purposes then vacation renters may want a place not secluded. Instead, vacationers may be looking for a place with amenities near local sights or attractions.

It’s important you decide what you want from your Tulum property. If you buy it for your own personal use, then you can always decide further in time if you want to rent it out as a Tulum vacation rental or keep it for you and your family. Tulum house rentals can make a good income. You can enjoy capital gains anyway, as property prices rise steadily in Tulum Mexico.
