There is no doubt there are inbound and outbound real estate opportunities with Mexico. Our neighbor to the south is the #1 destination for Americans moving overseas, and the #3 international investor in U.S. property. As the resort and second home market shows sustainable growth and real recovery, especially in resort and second home destinations, Mexico may be on the radar screen of many buyers and they may go to local REALTORS® as a first point of contact.
Locations such as Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, a hundred mile coastline stretching from Cancun south to the Belize border, offer numerous real estate developments catering to USA and Canadian buyers at many different price points, and developers are eager to partner with REALTORS® to share clients and referrals. While the Mexico real estate profession is not regulated, the members of NAR’s partner group, AMPI, subscribe to a common code of ethics and their members are also international REALTOR® members and eager to partner with their international counterparts.
The AMPI International Summit, “AIRES” will be held on June 12-15, 2014 and will highlight market opportunities, resort communities and connect with key Mexico destinations for international investment. Developers and professionals will be on hand to create referral partnerships with US and international real estate professionals. The event will include keynote speakers, property tours, networking, and activities centered around this world-class resort destination. All programming will be in English, and with a registration fee of only US$100 and room & all inclusive rates at only US$90 per person at the 5-star Bahia Principe Resort and Residences in Tulum, it makes an affordable getaway as well. Pre-registration is open until May 15th. This event follows the successful 2013 Summit in Los Cabos.
