Nicaragua: More Flexibility for the Housing Market

an dir="ltr">The association of developers is proposing that the interest rate benefit of 2.5% and the exemption from the registration costs that are currently granted to those who purchase social housing worth up to $23 thousand, be extended to more expensive homes, worth up to $50 thousand. 

The president of CADUR,
Héctor Lacayo, commented in an article by that "..."We have had significant spikes in the last 8 years and they have been the product of all the actions that have been taken initially in the proposal of Law 677, Law on the Promotion of Social Interest Housing; and also the mechanisms that have been seen through the banks and the government to raise funds to finance these houses."

He added that "... "Our approach as CADUR is to assess the expansion of the housing ceiling for a sector that is not yet being served, which is families who buy houses from 30 to 50 thousand dollars, who are middle class and are able to opt for these homes. We want to give them this benefit of the 2.5% interest rate and exemptions from registration expenses. CADUR will develop a new one-story housing option; multi-family projects of two and four floors taking advantage of the infrastructure in Managua."
