Bet on Housing Construction

In Nicaragua, incentives for financing and construction are driving growth of the real estate supply, especially the development of multifamily complexes.

Friday, November 17, 2017

A recent reform of the special law to promote financing and construction of low-income housing explains the strong momentum that the activity has seen in recent months.

Héctor Lacayo, president of the Chamber of Developers (Cadur), explained to that "... Starting in 2018 in the capital, at least six new housing projects will be developed, they are classified as multifamily units, in addition to the two that have already started to be sold this year and which are on the outskirts of the city."

"... At the most recent housing fair, 'there were 20 multifamily two-story houses that were on sale in the San Andrés residential complex (in Ciudad Sandino), and there was also a good acceptance of the six-story Villa Fontana project. There is a new project that is being promoted by New Century, it has four floors and will be in the vicinity of Managua."
