The last few years have been significant progress years here in Puerto Peñasco as the city has made huge strides in growth and development with such notable projects such as Encantame Towers and Islas Del Mar spearheading the way for what the future of Puerto Peñasco should be.

These have been great years and during this time, our real estate market continues to break records surpassing $100 million in total “Dollar Volume of Sold Listing,” for the second year in a row in 2022, making that the first time in history that Rocky Point Real Estate has had back-to-back years (2021, 2022) of over $100 million or more in sales production.

While the real estate market continues to remain strong and development is at all-time highs across the city, news of yet another project was announced last month as a new developer is set to bring affordable vacation homes to Sandy Beach with a downtown-concept as its theme. The project, known as Vivente at Sandy Beach, will be a 109-home, gated community with clubhouse and a downtown commercial center adding a touch of Main St., to Sandy Beach.

Situated across the street from Las Palomas Hole number one, Viviente will bring affordable housing to the area with some elegantly designed, three-bedroom floorplans with lot starting in the mid-$200s. Considering that a one-bedroom condo on Sandy Beach can average up to $330,000 USD, there is expected to be strong demand for this type of product.

The city within a city concept will give owners access to high-end retail, professional services, medical and culinary all just a short walk from their home. It will also transform the area which currently sits dark at night into a hub of service and technology.

The project will start Pre-Sales sales in June, and anybody interested can sign up for more information by visiting
