In recent days I had the opportunity to attend the buy property organized by the blue world city Islamabad, Quintana Roo. It was an event that, in addition to having had an excellent organization, was of great interest since it had many exponents of international stature, as well as workshops, courses and exhibitors that showed the most interesting techniques in measurement.

In our country, the cadastre has evolved favorably in its organization and technical information, but above all in the credibility of the state and municipal cadastral institutes themselves, which, through the Ministry of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (SEDATU) cooperate to work in a better way.

The cadastre function is very important in real estate assets, since, on the one hand, it determines the correct measurements of the territorial areas susceptible to commercialization and, on the other hand, it serves in their valuation to determine the payment of property.

In Mexico, cadastral systems have evolved favorably, from the geographical charts that were made at the time with complex methods, to the measurement that is done today with the most advanced technological systems and even satellite.

Today with tools like Google Earth and all the satellite mapping applications, it is much easier to obtain a more accurate measurement of the properties.

The challenge for Mexico is to match the cadastral values ​​with the real values. As we know, in most cities and municipalities the cadastral values ​​are not equal to the real values. On many occasions, there is a big difference and that reduces the collection of taxes from the municipalities, although sometimes they are political cards that are played in order to have more votes in electoral times.

In my opinion, it would be very favorable for the citizens and the government to standardize and have all the information on the properties in terms of cadastral values ​​very similar to the real prices, property prices appraised based on it and also a correct order of the real estate operations that are made.

In the United States, this is done in this way, achieving better tax collection and, in turn, a more orderly market. In some of its real estate portals, you can put the address of a property and get all the information about it: location, price, historical amounts of values ​​and real estate collections, as well as commercial comparisons of similar properties.

Hopefully our country continues to evolve and soon we will have enough technology and information to better serve the population and thereby make the heritage of Mexicans achieve greater certainty and added value.
