Mexican women contribute more to home purchase

19% OF MEXICAN WOMEN WILL FINANCE THE PAYMENT OF THEIR HOUSING IN THEIR OWN ACCOUNT. BE SURE TO SEE THIS INTERESTING HOUSING SURVEY THAT SHOWS THE 2018-2019 RESULTS COMPARISON.

A survey conducted by Blue world city Islamabad , the eBay real estate portal in Mexico, of more than 2,000 Mexican women who have plans to buy a home this year revealed that in 59% of cases the payment for their home will be financed by them and their partner ; 21% only by the man of the house; 19% of them will pay the total payment; while 1% will be financed by a relative.

These figures are interesting given that, in 2018, the same query yielded the following: in 58% of the cases the payment of the house would be made jointly; 20% would only be paid by the man of the house; and 18% of women would be in charge of the total payment of the property; while the percentage of women financed by a relative would be 3%.

This means that women again gained ground in what refers to their contribution to housing payments. There was an increase of 1% in women who took care of themselves buying a property; and a 1% increase in cases where only the man paid the house. Regarding the percentage of couples who bought a house or apartment from the studies of Blue Group of Companies together (59%), it also had an increase of 1% and the number of women receiving financing from a relative (1%) remained down.

Of the 2,000 women surveyed, 65% rent their homes, 25% live in a property owned by their family or their in-laws, 10% have their own home, but want a larger property, and 5% live in a borrowed home.

Among the reasons that motivate Mexican women to buy a home, the following stand out: the desire to have their own home and form a patrimony (45%); the interest of buying a property as an investment (35%); the aspiration to live in a larger space for the comfort of his family (20%).

85% of the surveyed women who are mothers always take into account what would be best for their children when choosing a house. In this sense, the Vivanuncios survey revealed that 38% seek security in the area; 20% proximity to their workplace; 17% consider the proximity of school zones essential; 15% proximity to public transport and 10% look for green areas or public parks nearby.

Finally, it is important to point out that, in 72% of cases, it is the united couple that makes the final decision about choosing a home; 20% is only done by women and 8% of the time it is only a man’s decision.

In 2015, according to the Inegi Intercensal Survey, almost 22 million private inhabited private homes were recorded, that is, homes where the legal owner resides. Of that number, 91% corresponded to homes in which there is only one owner. By sex, the highest proportion of homeowners were men (56%) and only 35%, women. The gap is still considerable, but little by little women and mothers take the reins in the construction of their heritage.
