Panel Looks at Mexican Housing Opportunities
Opportunities for American housing industry professionals to do business with Mexico, the second largest trading partner with the U.S., will be examined by a special panel during the upcoming International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla.
Carlos Gutierrez, Mexico’s commissioner of housing, and other distinguished experts from Mexico, will be discussing “Mexico’s Housing Market: Cross Border Investment and Business Opportunities.”
Demand for housing is particularly strong in Mexico, and its economy is increasingly prepared to support the construction of new and better homes.
Mexico is rated investment-grade, and relatively low interest rates have provided incentives for corporate and consumer spending. At the same time, housing has been gaining access to broadening sources of capital in the financial marketplace, and domestic pension funds and foreign institutional investors have been helping to develop a well-functioning and liquid mortgage-backed securities market.
The presentation will be on Thursday, Jan. 12, 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the W300 Lecture Hall at the Orange County Convention Center.
