When you think about doing a good business, investing in real estate is a good option, as long as you have the right strategy to guarantee the success of a project and that the scenarios of the sector are previously measured in the year you want to invest. Based on this fact, the question of many people who want to bet on this industry is if this 2022 is a good year to invest in real estate; the answer is yes.
There are different reasons that allow us to foresee that this year will be good for the sector. According to Florencia Azalea Estrada Lázaro, president of the Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals (AMPI), it is estimated that the real estate market will have a growth of 20% throughout this year compared to 2021, driven by housing placement.

One of the news that comes this 2022 to surprise us is the ease of acquiring real estate in Mexico, and this is because, according to Infonavit and Fovissste, since May 2021 the interest rates on mortgage loans have presented a decrease of 7.9%, Therefore, according to the CCIMA group, they are expected to remain that way even after the pandemic.
One of the most important trends in the real estate market is the adaptability of spaces. In Mexico, more and more people are looking for cozy houses where they can merge their work, and to do it in the famous “home office” format.
This need has increased exponentially throughout the country as a result of the pandemic, and according to a study by IAE Business School, 68% of Mexicans have a hybrid scheme in their work, and more than 50% want to continue with that same type of work, regardless of the issue of the pandemic.
Another strong trend for this 2022 are those developed with a large number of amenities and commercial services. More and more families are looking for residential complexes that meet the needs of each member, which is why they prefer to acquire homes located in “small cities”.
