The 2014 Vallarta Real Estate Fair

The 2014 Vallarta Real Estate Fair at the Rivera Molino plaza drew to a close on Saturday, February 15th. The one-day event doubled the number of visitors from last year’s debut and included attendees from the Marina Vallarta, Mismaloya, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, as well as AMPI real estate agents from different regions of the bay.

Sponsored by Timothy Real Estate Group, the event gathered local professionals, providing their services in fields such as health care, home owners and health insurance, mortgages, interior design, landscaping, financial investments, property management, vacation rental services, real estate, fiscal law changes and immigration to name a few.

A first for this year’s fair was the Panel Of Professional series, in which Lic. Fernando Castro spoke about the new requirements and changes in the capital gains laws. “I’m always interested in real estate,” says Susan Engen, fair attendee. “My husband and I own property down here, which is very important, especially if we start thinking about selling it. There was a lot of information available, and it was very good.” There was also a video market report about the current real estate market presented by host Carl Timothy and included interesting statistics and graphs, all of which has been posted online and can be seen by clicking HERE.  Additionally, the two free speakers’ workshops included valuable information ranging from escrow services, mortgages to hiring the right property management company and how to maximize your investment property. “The turnouts at the workshops were great. It goes to show that our clients, friends and the public are constantly seeking information. We are planning to expand on the speakers’ series for next year,” says real estate agent Taniel Chemsian.

Timothy Real Estate Group has already started planning for next year’s Vallarta Real Estate Fair, which will see a significant increase in the number of exhibitors and workshops.
