Luxury is an often overused word to describe real estate. Everything from a nice condo kitchen with mid-higher end appliances or a heated swimming pool gets labeled as “Luxury”. Luxury is also used to describe ultra-luxury custom homes of the one-percenters of the world. Luxury real estate is often defined differently in different markets and often is related to property value and residential incomes. In many markets, a property over a million dollars was thought of as luxury, but, as a result of rising property values, some 146 cities in the United States have a median home price of over 1m USD. Will homes around the median be luxury? Probably not. Here’s what you will find in Los Cabos.

Branded Luxury Residences
Did you ever vacation at a 5-star resort and wish you could live that lifestyle whenever you wanted? Branded residences can be appealing for discerning homebuyers looking for a private and upscale home that offers the same perks and services as hotel living.
Despite hotel-branded residences having been around for a while, they have grown more popular than ever for buyers seeking a property investment that offers a name that buyers know, love, and trust, first-class facilities, prestige, and convenience.
Buyers of branded residences often own homes in other locations around the world. Like most homeowners, they prefer to have their personal effects in their own homes and don’t want to worry about maintenance and security when not in residence. Additionally, 24/7 concierge services are desirable for enjoying a hotel lifestyle with lock-and-go convenience in their homes.
From breathtaking locations offering security and privacy, first-class perks, and personal service, branded residences offer a lifestyle aligned with each brand’s ideals.
There are many benefits to buyers selecting a branded residence as a vacation home.
- Prime location
- Superior Services and amenities
- Thoughtful interior design and architecture, state-of-the-art technology
- Trust and credibility
- Strong resale value
- Higher rental income on average
- Professional operational management and maintenance
- Convenient and hassle-free ownership
