Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — To continue with the promotion of professional real estate agents, the local AMPI (La Asociación Mexicana de Profesionales Inmobiliarios A.C.) chapter of Playa del Carmen holds regular conferences to address local issues.
According to AMPI, approximately 50 percent of Playa del Carmen real estate agents are licensed. Ana Alicia López, president of the Playa Del Carmen chapter explained that a real estate license is a requirement to practice the profession. It is for this reason AMPI Playa del Carmen has facilitated training for its members.
She added that while half of agents are currently licensed, by next year, licensing will be mandatory. Agents will need to either be licensed or joined AMPI and be in the process of becoming licensed.
“It is a requirement of all real estate agents to have the real estate license, registration and accreditation. Part of those requirements is the classroom hours as well as hours of training,” she said.
The latest conference addressed real estate tax strategies which was led by David E. Merino and previous Playa del Carmen AMPI president, Juan Luis Talamantes.
“The objective of the event is the professionalization of the real estate sector. Every year we try to bring international speakers and this year it was Dr. Merino who was also here last year. Due to the positive comments from last year, we brought him back this year.”
AMPI has chapters in most major cities around the country with the center being in Mexico City.
