Prestigious Lifestyle Amenities Debut With the Hemisphere’s Lowest Home Prices

MERIDA, Mexico/PRNewswire/ — For the first time, a resort community is coupling dramatic lifestyle amenities and remarkably low home prices to deliver a unique, five-star experience for second home buyers, vacation home buyers and retirees. Flamingo Lakes, a new community in the Yucatan Peninsula, is combining its 840-acre nature preserve, two golf courses, beach club and marina, spa and fitness center, championship tennis academy, equestrian center with a great home value — a two-bedroom, three-bathroom detached home for $260,000 USD. Condominiums overlooking the golf course start at only $113,000 USD.

To introduce buyers to the region, Flamingo Lakes is hosting a “Fly Buy” discovery tour. Visitors who spend three days at the resort and decide to buy or invest within five days of leaving Flamingo Lakes will be reimbursed up to $1,500 USD in travel costs from the purchase price. Supported by the Mexican government with title guaranteed by First American, a leading US title company, Flamingo Lakes is also offering a 4 percent commission to US and Canadian brokers.

“Fortune Magazine recognizes the Yucatan as one of the top five picks for residential real estate investment, and when you visit Flamingo Lakes, you’ll understand why,” said Carmen Laborin, marketing director for Flamingo Lakes. “Coupled with the resort’s five-star amenities, Flamingo Lakes is a great value and an incredible investment that will be enjoyed for generations to come.”

With old world landmarks including Mayan ruins, haciendas and cathedrals, and modern conveniences like theaters, universities and shopping malls, Merida offers a unique blend of colonial city and cosmopolitan destination. Popular retailers including Sears, Sam’s Club, Costco and Wal-Mart, as well as luxury car dealerships like Porsche, can all be found in Merida. The city’s tranquility, cleanliness and low cost of living have made Merida a popular destination for wealthy families from other Mexican states and have attracted many homebuyers to Flamingo Lakes.

“Merida is a magnet for US retirees who want to live in paradise,” said Laborin. “The low cost of living and new top-tier hospitals allow retirees to live carefree and comfortably on a fixed income.”
