Residential properties you can buy in Mexico for US $300,000

Dreaming of your home in Mexico? Come on down! With its expat-friendly cities and captivating landscapes, Mexico has become a beloved destination for those seeking an affordable yet vibrant lifestyle. 

The current real estate market is experiencing a surge in interest. Fueled by comparatively affordable property prices and a welcoming atmosphere, Mexico has become an increasingly popular destination for those looking to explore, invest or retire. 

From beachfront properties along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts to charming mansions in beautifully preserved colonial sites, Mexico offers options for any preference. Your dream home may be more within reach than you imagine!

Let’s get a sense of what you can purchase for around US$300,000 if you are looking to invest in real estate in Mexico.

Mexico City:

If you’re all about that big city swagger, get ready to claim your piece of the capital skyline with a pre-sale loft at The University Tower on Mexico City’s coveted Reforma Avenue. This VIP club is so swanky, it’s nestled within its very own restored 19th-century mansion.

This architectural masterpiece is set to be the capital’s second-tallest residential skyscraper, and will measure over 660 feet upon its completion in 2025. With 525 residential units on 47 floors, these modern lofts average 399 square feet each. The tower will offer amazing city views, security, and luxury hotel services. 

When you’re not busy enjoying your stylish pad, you’ve got first-class amenities to indulge in. A gym and spa to keep you looking fabulous, a game room (because adulting is hard), a cafeteria for casually bumping into hot neighbors, a jacuzzi to soak away your worries, and a concierge to make you feel like Batman.
