18 Март, 2023

Investing real estate has always been considered a good thing and in Mexico it is the best option.

Well, by owning a property, establishing roots and generating capital is a goal for many people.

But in a country as large and diverse as Mexico, how do you choose in which state, city and area to invest?

Before exploring the options, you have to know what your investment is for.

If you are looking for a home for yourself, to create a family and to develop for the future or if you are looking for an investment to capitalize on through vacation rentals or long-term rentals and you are not looking for it to live.

Herein lies a big difference about the best places to invest in real estate.

Regardless, these are the places that today are considered the most popular to invest in real estate.

Mexico City

It is the capital of the country and the city with the largest population.

Therefore, Mexico City is the logical answer to a successful real estate investment.

The range of real estate offer in the capital is immense, with properties that vary from below one million pesos to above 50 million or more.

Mexico City is a mecca for work, education and tourism, which is perfect for vacation rentals, long-term rentals or to live in a house comfortably.

Depending on the area you choose within its 16 delegations, you can find everything from studios, one or two bedroom apartments, luxury apartments with pool and gym, small and large houses, mansions, and everything you can look for.

The choice is yours.

Mexico City is an extremely popular area for real estate investment because of the thousands of inhabitants that arrive year after year. The area has an impressive development, cultural offer, fun, work, education and much more.

It is an area that adapts to anyone and will adapt to your needs.

Riviera maya

Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Akumal, Puerto Aventuras.

You decide in which of the areas of the Riviera Maya you would like to invest.

This is an extremely popular destination for nationals and foreigners, which makes investors look for housing opportunities for vacation rentals.


The beautiful white sand beaches, the natural offer, the selection of bars and restaurants, among others, makes it a perfect place for tourists and for people looking to work from home or work in tourism.

The area has grown exponentially over the past 20 years and investment returns of up to 15 percent are reported annually on vacation rental homes.

If you are looking for something for yourself and not to rent, it is also an excellent option.

The labor and educational offer in the area is growing, and the quality of life is very good.

It has become a destination for young couples looking to start their life, get married and settle down with a family.


Querétaro has been in constant development and growth for years, in addition to being the country’s most important industrial zone.

In Querétaro there is a very valuable economy and it is home to very large national and international companies.

But beyond that, it is an extremely valuable area for its culture and history, being a point of attraction for many people and consolidating itself as a preferred tourist destination in the Bajío.

One of its great advantages is its proximity to the capital of the country, as many people seek to get out of the traffic and population of it and settle a little further outside.

Even so, the proximity allows you to have everything the city offers in just two hours.

It is estimated that the capital gain in Querétaro has increased up to 20 percent.

As in the Riviera Maya, investing in this area has its advantages as for a home of your own as for vacation rentals.


For years, Mérida has been considered the safest city in Mexico and even in Latin America and the one with the best quality of life.

Overall, Merida has it all.

It is located just three hours from the Riviera Maya, half an hour from Progreso, has an immense cultural and gastronomic offer, and also has one of the New Seven Wonders of the World just one hour away: Chichen Itza.

Mérida has developed and positioned itself as a city with great employment and educational potential, and this has been reflected in its growing real estate offer.

Best of all, the prices of real estate in this city are much lower than what you could pay in other areas of Mexico.

It is also one of the cities most visited by national and international tourism, offering great vacation rental potential.

Its job offer has attracted young people from all over the country to seek employment, and has generated an important long-term rental market.

Merida’s low cost of living also allows them to pay slightly higher rents and live more comfortably.


If you are looking for a wide range of properties with a wide variety of styles and prices, you cannot miss Guadalajara.

The capital of Jalisco is an extremely popular area in the education sector, with some of the most important universities in the entire country.

If you are looking for a permanent home to have a family, Guadalajara is the right decision.

On the labor front, it is home to very high-level international companies, and it also exports a lot of product to the United States.


Also has a lot of cultural value, and it is a totally cosmopolitan city.

It is considered, among many things, the capital of fashion, sports and entertainment.

But perhaps one of its great attractions for many is its proximity to Puerto Vallara, one of the most popular vacation destinations in the country.

Without a doubt, Guadalajara is a destination that favors the economy.


Like Guadalajara and Mexico City, Monterrey is considered one of the great economic engines of the country.

In this city in the northeast of the country, located in Nuevo León, the industrial force has developed and has become the headquarters of very important international companies.

Like these other cities, the educational offer in Monterrey is of a very high quality, and it has caused thousands of students to move to the city to study and, later, begin their working lives.

This has caused the capital gain of fixed income in Monterrey to increase.

Monterrey offers a very good quality of life and has very close-knit communities.

It is an excellent option for someone looking for a property to root and start a family, or simply become part of a community.

Besides, who can deny a roast beef?

The real estate offer in the area is the same as in the others mentioned: studios, apartments, houses and mansions.

It depends on you and your needs, and you can find properties in all price ranges.
