 “Housing ” a Determinant of Real Estate Market

              The real estate market is driven by the demand for housing by households.   Houses available for sale or rent set the levels of supply available for households. The ratio of housing demand and its supply determines the valuation of real estate property.   Household well-being, housing choices, investment, and economic well-being determine the state of the real estate market. In this blog post, we will explore the key points about housing in the real estate market.

  • Homeownership

According to the National Population and Housing Census 2021, out of total households, 86% of households own their own homes,12.8% are rented, 0.6% are held by institutions and 0.7% by others. The higher ownership of housing by households on their own and renting clarifies that real estate investment can be a greater option for households to reside and generate a rental income providing potentiality for financial gains and value appreciation.

It is important to know about the composition of houses and trends in housing to have maximum financial gains. Properties that meet the needs and wants of households have greater potential to be sold and high valuation. Primary components of the house include the foundation, outer walls, roof, and flooring.
