In Yucatán, some 60 thousand houses are unoccupied, a figure that represents 13 percent of the total number of houses in the State, said the president of the National Chamber of the Housing Development and Promotion Industry (Canadevi) Yucatán, Sergei López Cantón.

Despite the number of abandoned houses, the Chamber assures that Yucatán is below the national average in unoccupied houses. He explained that the census of houses in the State is just over 650 thousand properties.

When comparing the metrics of unoccupied housing in Yucatán with those of the rest of the country, it is highlighted that the national average is 15 percent, while the State average is 13 percent.

López Cantón pointed out that the situation of unoccupied housing in Yucatán is not worrying for the sector he represents, since it is not as critical as in other regions of the country, where it reaches up to 22 percent.

Particularly in the city of Mérida, abandoned housing is concentrated in the Historic Center, where the rate of uninhabited properties is close to 35 percent.

This phenomenon, according to the businessman, is multifactorial, but one of the aspects that may influence is that the new generations prefer to settle in the outskirts of the city, instead of living in the center.

López Cantón stated that part of the unoccupied housing in the Historic Center of Mérida could be due to legal conflicts. He assured that this factor contributes to the high rate of abandonment in that area.

The President of Canadevi announced that next year, Inegi will update the figures of unoccupied housing at a national level. He was optimistic about the possible decrease of this figure in Yucatan since the trend in recent years has been downward, from 15 to 12 percent, and he hopes that this trend will continue.
