Is there a service like Zillow in Mexico?
Is there a website or app like Zillow in Mexico?
Though there are many smaller and regional real estate portals in Mexico, there is not a website akin to Zillow.com in Mexico right now. This is because there is not a unified, national MLS (Multiple Listings Service) in Mexico, where real estate portals can get all real estate information from a centralized location as in the US and Canada.
What are the Zillow and Redfin alternatives for Mexico real estate?
Despite the decentralized nature of the market, several online platforms have emerged to help potential buyers and sellers navigate Mexican real estate, including FarHomes.com, but they are all typically limited to certain areas of Mexico, most commonly the hotel districts like Cancun, Cabo or Puerto Vallarta. Websites like Realtor, Sotheby’s and Point2Homes do have some Mexico listings but no one real estate portal in Mexico has them all in one place right now, like Zillow and others do in the United States.
A possible future of a unified MLS in Mexico
Though these platforms are great resources, the inherent fragmentation means that individuals often have to explore multiple platforms to gain a comprehensive understanding of available properties. There are MLS’ for certain areas that could one day unify including MLS Vallarta and MLS Baja, for example.
Browsing these listings will give you a sense of what’s available but your best bet right now is to connect with a real estate agent in Mexico directly to get all of the latest listings available.
There may one day be a service like Zillow or Redfin here but it will take a lot of organization and deal making throughout Mexico for it to occur, just as it did in the United States. With the help of technology, including AI, there will likely one day be a centralized real estate portal powered by a unified MLS in Mexico, which would allow for a site like Zillow there.
