New Trends in Real Estate and Hospitality: Innovative Business Models in Mexico

June 5, 2024 2024 Sales Department

The real estate and hospitality industry in Mexico is undergoing a significant transformation. Driven by changes in consumer preferences, technological advances and the recent global pandemic, companies in the sector are reevaluating their practices and strategies to adapt to new market demands. In this blog, we will explore the most innovative business models that are redefining hospitality in Mexico and analyze current trends in the real estate sector.

Vacation Properties and Short Term Rentals

One of the most innovative and booming models in the hospitality sector is vacation properties and short-term rentals. Platforms like Airbnb and Vrbo have revolutionized the way people travel and stay, allowing homeowners to rent out their properties to tourists and business travelers. These platforms offer a flexible and often cheaper alternative to traditional hotels.

In Mexico, popular tourist destinations such as the Riviera Maya, Los Cabos and Mazatlán have seen a significant increase in the supply of vacation properties. However, this model also presents challenges, especially in terms of regulation and competition with traditional hospitality. It is crucial that owners understand local laws and guest expectations to maximize their profitability and ensure a positive experience.

Boutique and Personalized Luxury Hotels

Another emerging model is that of personalized luxury and boutique hotels. These establishments focus on offering unique and personalized experiences to their guests, differentiating themselves from large hotel chains that are often perceived as impersonal. Customization can range from unique decor and design to exclusive services such as private butlers or dedicated chefs.

In Mexico, the boutique hotel trend has gained popularity in cities such as San Miguel de Allende, Tulum, and Mexico City. These hotels not only attract tourists, but also business travelers looking for a more enriching and personalized experience during their stay.

Some notable examples of these hotels in Mexico are: Kanan Tulum Hotel and Spa, Hotel El Ganzo in Los Cabos, Contemplation Resort and Spa in Valle de Guadalupe and Rosewood in San Miguel de Allende.

Challenges of Boutique Hotels

Operating a boutique hotel comes with unique challenges ranging from cost management to competing with large hotel chains. Below, we address some of the main challenges:

Cost and Financing Management:

Managing costs and financing can be a significant challenge. Boutique hotels, with their emphasis on customization and luxury, often require a considerable upfront investment for design and construction. Additionally, operating costs can be high due to the need to maintain high standards of service and quality.

Competition with Large Hotel Chains:

Although boutique hotels offer unique experiences, they must compete with large chains that can offer lower rates due to economies of scale. This requires boutique hotels to clearly differentiate themselves and position themselves in the market effectively.

Consistency in Service Quality:

Consistency in service quality is crucial. Due to their smaller size, boutique hotels rely heavily on quality of service to attract and retain guests. This requires constant staff training and meticulous focus on every detail of the operation.

Marketing and Visibility:

Unlike large chains that have substantial marketing and advertising budgets, boutique hotels must find creative and effective ways to promote themselves. This may include strategic use of social media, partnerships with influencers, and participation on specialized travel platforms.

Technological Adaptation:

Implementing and maintaining advanced technologies such as property management systems, automated check-in, and personalization tools require investments and technical knowledge. However, these technologies are crucial to improving operational efficiency and delivering a superior guest experience.

Current Trends in the Real Estate Sector in Mexico

The real estate industry in Mexico is seeing a series of changes and adaptations to the new market realities. Here are some of the most relevant trends:

Sustainability and Ecological Constructions

There is growing interest in developments that incorporate sustainable practices and green technologies. Consumers and developers are looking for buildings that reduce environmental impact, use renewable energy and offer green spaces.

Urbanization and Microurbanisms

Large cities such as Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey continue to expand, but there is also a focus on developing micro-urbanisms or smaller, self-sufficient communities within these cities. This seeks to reduce travel time and improve quality of life.

Multifunctional Housing

The pandemic has demonstrated the need for spaces that are adaptable to work, live and enjoy. Homes that offer flexibility in the use of their spaces are gaining popularity.

Investment in Vacation Properties

Key tourist destinations are seeing a boom in investment in holiday rental properties. This is driven by both domestic and international investors who see the potential for profitability in these markets.

Technology and Digitalization

From buying and selling properties to management and maintenance, technology is transforming every aspect of the real estate sector. Apps for virtual tours, digital contracts and property management are becoming more common.

Co-living and Co-working spaces

The trend of combining living and working spaces continues to grow, especially in cities with a high concentration of digital nomads and freelancers. These spaces offer community, flexibility and convenience.

Foreign Investments

Mexico continues to be an attractive destination for foreign investors, especially in the luxury tourist and residential real estate sector. The country’s relative economic stability and cultural and natural attractiveness drive this trend.

Conclusion

Innovation and adaptability are key in the real estate and hospitality industry in Mexico. New business models, such as vacation properties and boutique hotels, along with emerging trends in real estate, are shaping the future of the market. The challenges are significant, but the opportunities for those who know how to adapt and evolve are enormous.

Renting your property on Airbnb can be a great way to generate additional income. However, to maximize your profits and ensure a positive experience for both you and your guests, it is essential to keep a few key aspects in mind. We share a guide with the best tips to make your Airbnb adventure a success.

    1. Know Local Regulations

Before you start renting your property on Airbnb, it’s crucial to find out about local regulations. In Mexico, regulations may vary depending on the location. In popular tourist locations such as Oaxaca de Juárez and the coastal region of Huatulco, it is important to register with the local Tourism Secretariat. Fines for non-compliance can vary, but in some cases they can reach up to 50,000 pesos.

    1. Prepare your Property

The presentation of your property is vital. According to a study by the Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals (AMPI), properties in Oaxaca that are well maintained and decorated can increase their rental rates by 15-25%. Make sure your space is clean, well-maintained, and equipped with all the basic amenities. Consider investing in modern and cozy decoration to make your property more attractive.

    1. Professional Photographs

Photos are the first impression potential guests will have of your property. In Mexico, listings with professional photos can generate up to 50% more revenue than those without high-quality photos, according to Airbnb data. Hire a professional photographer to capture your space in the best light and from the most favorable angles.

    1. Write an Attractive Description

Your description should be clear, honest and attractive. Listings in Mexico with detailed and accurate descriptions are 25% more likely to be booked, according to Airbnb data. Highlight the best features of your property and the neighborhood, such as proximity to tourist attractions, restaurants, and public transportation.

    1. Establish Competitive Prices

Research the prices of similar properties in your area to set a competitive rate. In Oaxaca, rates can vary significantly depending on location. For example, in Oaxaca de Juárez, hosts can charge between 800 and 2,000 pesos per night, while on the coast of Huatulco prices can range between 1,500 and 4,500 pesos per night. Use Airbnb tools like Smart Pricing, which automatically adjusts your rates based on demand.

    1. Offer an Exceptional Experience

Success on Airbnb is based on positive reviews. According to a study by Airbnb Mexico, listings with an average rating of 4.8 stars or higher are 70% more likely to be booked. Be an approachable host and respond quickly to any queries. In addition, it offers small details such as a city guide, welcome snacks or personalized recommendations.

    1. Optimize your listing

Regularly update your listing with new photos and descriptions. Keep an up-to-date calendar to avoid double bookings. According to data from Airbnb Mexico, hosts who update their listing at least once a month have 15% more reservations. Additionally, respond to all reviews, both positive and negative, in a professional and courteous manner.

    1. Promote your Property

Take advantage of social networks to promote your property. Share photos and testimonials from satisfied guests on platforms like Instagram and Facebook. In Mexico, and specifically in Oaxaca, 60% of travelers use social networks to plan their trips, according to a study by the Mexican Internet Association (AMIPCI).

    1. Use Management Tools

There are several tools and software that can help you manage your property efficiently. Tools like Guesty or Hostaway can automate tasks like communicating with guests, managing reservations, and coordinating with housekeeping staff. According to Airbnb data, hosts in Oaxaca who use these tools report a 30% reduction in management time.

    1. Maintenance and Security

Perform regular maintenance on your property to ensure everything is working properly. Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and provide emergency information to your guests. In Oaxaca, well-maintained properties are 18% more likely to receive positive reviews, which translates into more bookings.

 

In conclusion, renting your property on Airbnb can be a very good source of income if you do it correctly. By following these tips, you can maximize your profits and offer a memorable experience to your guests. Remember that the key is preparation, attention to detail and commitment to excellence in service.

Can I buy a property on the beach as a foreigner in Mexico?

April 17, 2024 Sales Department  

Mexico is a country rich in culture, customs, traditions, and has unmatched gastronomy among exceptional drinks and dishes. In addition, it has many cities that are a great tourist attraction for people from all over the world. This attraction, together with the peculiar, more relaxed lifestyle, generates in some people the desire to invest in property and start a life in this impressive country.

 

The above opens space to a very popular question: can I acquire property in Mexico as a foreigner? And the answer is yes. Foreigners can purchase property in Mexico, including beachfront properties. However, it is important to mention that there are certain areas considered “restricted zones”, which have some restrictions for foreigners and a trust is required to purchase.

 

The decision to purchase property in Mexico through a Mexican company or trust will depend on several factors, including your financial and personal objectives, as well as the specific regulations and restrictions in the area where you wish to purchase.

 

A trust (called a real estate trust or “bank trust”) is a common option for foreigners, especially in restricted areas, as it allows the acquisition of property with legal protections. However, a Mexican company can also be a viable option, depending on the legal and tax structure that best suits your needs.

 

Therefore, it is advisable to consult with a real estate expert or an attorney specialized in foreign property laws in Mexico to obtain personalized advice on which option would be ideal for you and your needs.

 

At SILMÉXICO we have a team of professionals who are experts in real estate, foreign property laws in Mexico and the incorporation of Mexican companies. Feel confident that we will advise you here to help you make the best investment decisions in Mexico.

Puis-je acheter une propriété sur la plage au Mexique en tant qu’étranger??

FOTO: CUATUNALCO BEACH
mercredi 17 avril 2024 Sales Department

Le Mexique est un pays riche en culture, coutumes, traditions et possède une gastronomie inégalée parmi des boissons et des plats exceptionnels. En outre, elle compte de nombreuses villes qui constituent une grande attraction touristique pour les personnes du monde entier. Cette attraction, associée au style de vie particulier et plus détendu, génère chez certaines personnes le désir d’investir dans une propriété et de commencer une vie dans ce pays impressionnant.

 

Ce qui précède ouvre la voie à une question très populaire : puis-je acquérir une propriété au Mexique en tant qu’étranger ? Et la réponse est oui. Les étrangers peuvent acheter des propriétés au Mexique, y compris des propriétés en bord de mer. Cependant, il est important de mentionner qu’il existe certaines zones considérées comme des « zones réglementées », qui comportent certaines restrictions pour les étrangers et qu’une fiducie est nécessaire pour acheter.

 

La décision d’acheter une propriété au Mexique par l’intermédiaire d’une société ou d’une fiducie mexicaine dépendra de plusieurs facteurs, notamment de vos objectifs financiers et personnels, ainsi que des réglementations et restrictions spécifiques à la région où vous souhaitez acheter.

 

Une fiducie (appelée fiducie immobilière ou « fiducie bancaire ») est une option courante pour les étrangers, notamment dans les zones réglementées, car elle permet l’acquisition de biens avec des protections juridiques. Cependant, une entreprise mexicaine peut également être une option viable, selon la structure juridique et fiscale la mieux adaptée à vos besoins.

 

Il est donc conseillé de consulter un expert immobilier ou un avocat spécialisé dans le droit des biens étrangers au Mexique pour obtenir des conseils personnalisés sur l’option qui serait idéale pour vous et vos besoins.

 

Chez SILMÉXICO, nous disposons d’une équipe de professionnels experts en immobilier, en droit de la propriété étrangère au Mexique et en constitution de sociétés mexicaines. Soyez assuré que nous vous conseillons ici pour vous aider à prendre les meilleures décisions d’investissement au Mexique.

THE NEW OAXACA-PUERTO ESCONDIDO HIGHWAY

Wednesday, February 20, 2024 By Verónica González Sales Assistant

After more than 15 years, the wait is over and on February 4, the 104.3-kilometer work of the Barranca Larga- Ventanilla highway was inaugurated. This new highway will shorten the distance between the state capital and the Oaxacan coast, going from 6.5 hours to only 2.5 hours.

 

This project required an investment of 13 billion pesos and with its start of operations it will benefit the more than 500 thousand inhabitants of the 50 municipalities of this region. The construction of this highway also generated an economic impact of 1,800 direct jobs and 3,500 indirect jobs. It is expected that after its opening there will be traffic of around 4 thousand vehicles per day.

New highway Oaxaca-Puerto

The road from the Oaxacan capital to Puerto Escondido is made up of two parts. The first part runs along Federal Highway 175 0axaca-Puerto Ángel in a route of 70 kilometers. A booth at this point marks the beginning of the second section for 104 more kilometers, during which there are 15 access junctions for the surrounding communities. The route has bridges, 3 viaducts, 3 tunnels, 114 crossing structures and finally ends at the beach. It is important to mention that the road will be free during the first year after its opening.

 

Without a doubt, this new highway will be a very important trigger for the tourism sector, since the travel time from the capital to the beach destinations on the Oaxacan coast will be reduced: Huatulco, Puerto Escondido, Zicatela, Mazunte and San Agustinillo, among others. The above translates into much more influx of visitors, more productive investment, economic growth and more jobs for the inhabitants of the area.

TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION WORKS IN MEXICO

Friday, December 1, 2023 By Jessica Hernández Sales Assistant at SILMÉXICO  

In Mexico, as in the rest of the world, there are different types of construction works, each one requires different planning and materials according to its use, so in the following blog, we present the different types of buildings in the country. 

Public construction

This type of structure refers to those that are financed by governmental institutions, whose objective is the benefit of a whole community, seeking to cover the needs of the population. These include highways, streets, railroads, water distribution systems, hospitals, fire stations, courthouses, parks, and other works that correspond to the federal, state, or municipal governments.

Residential construction

These are those buildings with housing purposes, reduced to the term “house”, within them, there are different types, depending on their design, size, etc., such as villas, condos, apartments, townhouses, or traditional houses.

Commercial Construction

Designed for economic exchange between members of society, through the location of businesses. These are divided into shopping centers, warehouses, as well as offices, and industries. Within this type of construction, activities of buying and selling products and/or services are carried out.

Industrial construction

These buildings are built for manufacturing or product distribution purposes, precisely because of these functions, these types of buildings should be located away from urbanization, for greater safety, since they contain machinery and/or use hazardous chemical components.

Construction of green areas

This refers to all those areas whose objective is to promote environmental care, such as parks, gardens, and green surfaces in general, in which the protagonists are plants, recycled materials, and eco-friendly.

 

Other types of construction include cultural construction focused on educational and entertainment activities, which are built with stages and noise-insulating materials. As well as sports, for physical recreation, such as gymnasiums, swimming pools, running tracks, stadiums, etc. Built with concrete structures and profiles.
