Real estate in Mazatlán is somewhat different than what the average person might expect in a resort city.
Situated in an 816-acre, gated community with lush tropical landscaping, Estrella del Mar is anchored by a Robert Trent Jones Jr. 18-hole championship golf course and over 3.5 miles of pristine beach.
There are some newer, upscale developments which offer golf, marina and beach front homes, and lots of condos. Because of physical limitations, much of the real estate offered in Mazatlán lacks much of a view or direct access to the water.
Additionally, there are many nice upper middle class neighborhoods which offer a very nice lifestyle, as well as value for the potential investor or retiree.
Real estate prices in Mazatlán are generally lower than those in resort cities such as Cancun or Los Cabos. As with most beach cities, anywhere in the world, a carefully selected Real Estate investment should appreciate with time.
