Guatemala: More Real Estate Development in the Capital

The increasing preference for residences in central areas of the capital is generating business opportunities for developers in areas which have not yet been exploited.

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Real Estate companies say that although there is a good distribution of the supply of high rise and traditional houses in the capital, "... development is needed of zones 3, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12, which have access and services."

According to the director of Global Inspections (IG), Juan Carlos Salazar, "... it is difficult to speak of specific areas which are attractive to developers because there are opportunities in many places. But he stated that there are more companies specializing in certain areas and other developers interested in looking for markets that have not yet been addressed. "

The president of the Guatemalan Chamber of Construction, Pelayo Llarena, told that "... In areas of zones 11 and 12, because of the access provided by the Transmentro service, interest has been generated ... Zone 18 has attracted high rise projects and the area of ​​Avenida Bolivar is being suggested as a new possibility. "
