"The guilds of Panama involved in building and selling homes, have joined forces with the aim of making underground cables in new residential projects (...) not having a significant impact on the price of homes ...", reported Panamaamerica.com.pa.
House prices could increase by as much as $7000 because of underground cables laying, now postponed until January, in new residential complexes.
The Ministry of Housing and Territorial Ordinances has decided, along with promoters of urban projects, to postpone until January 2014, underground cable laying which was scheduled to start on September 1.
It has been pointed out that the impact on commercial real estate owners has not been taken into account when the underground cables are laid on their properties.
Elisa Suarez Gomez, executive director of the National Council for Promotion of Housing Developers (Convivienda) said they will ask the Ministry of Housing and Land (Miviot) to postpone until January 2014 the new standard which includes a cable laying plan, in order to reach agreements with the Ministry of Public Works, the Public Services Authority and utility companies.
