Mexico Real estate agents must now have mandatory training, licenses

Cancun, Q.R. – The state of Quintana Roo gears up for the new rules and mandatory training as set out for all real estate agents.

As one of the most popular states for foreign property investments, the National Chamber of Commerce (CANACO) along with the Foundation for Investment in the Riviera Maya are meeting with their real estate advisors to begin offering training for real estate agents in the state.

Beginning January 2016, all real estate agents in Quintana Roo will be required to have mandatory training and proper licensing before being permitted to legally buy and sell real estate as a professional agent.

Pablo Alcocer Gongora, president of Kanak, says, “We will promote courses for real estate agents so they can be certified with the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing and that they can develop the skills as required by the law of real estate services of the State of Quintana Roo.”

Courses for real estate agents in the state of Quintana Roo will begin August 15. Certification will include courses on accounting, finance and law, among other areas, and will take approximately three months to complete.
