Querétaro in Top 10 in Infonavit credits


In the state, as of the April cut-off, around 4.5 billion pesos had been placed in the economy, compared to 3.3 billion from last year.

The state of Querétaro is in the top 10 entities where more housing credits are placed, reported Carlos Martínez Velásquez, general director of Infonavit, during his visit to this entity.

“In Querétaro we are doing very well, it is one of the states where we have seen significant growth in the placement of credits and housing. This has to do with many reasons, but the main one is something that happens throughout the country, which has to do with the relocation of companies,” he indicated.

Regarding the entities that have made the most progress in the placement of credits, he said that Monterrey is where there are the most; followed by the industrial area of Ciudad Juárez; then Tijuana, and other border cities like Reynosa and Matamoros, Tamaulipas. Then, the State of Mexico, but Querétaro is an important area that is in the top 10 because it has significant growth.

He affirmed that there is a direct investment greater than has ever existed. In this regard, he mentioned that, in Querétaro, as of the April cut-off, around 4.5 billion pesos had been placed in the economy, compared to 3.3 billion from last year.

“This is a very important figure because it means that houses continue to be sold in Querétaro, and that people are buying them,” expressed the federal official.

He argued that migration is due to the fact that there is work, that companies are being established, and secondly, because there is an income effect, since, he assured, the policy of the federal government is based on the income of the minimum wage.

He referred to the average salary in Querétaro, which is close to the national average, which is 16,577 pesos. With that salary, families are reaching close to 730,000 pesos for a credit.

“Places like Querétaro have an offer that does match the salary. Here we have seen developments of a much higher level, which are already going to much higher prices,” added Carlos Martínez Velásquez.

He added that last year, Infonavit returned 17 billion pesos to about 200,000 people who went to claim their housing sub-account, mentioning that these are mechanisms that have been in place since the reform of ’97, and with that of 2020, and now with that of 2024 in terms of pensions, so they are return mechanisms that remain in force.

The visit of the general director of Infonavit, Carlos Martínez, was to attend the national closing of the Mural Unit project, as well as the inauguration of the mural in the Real Solare Housing Unit, in the municipality of El Marqués.
