Housing in Iran is becoming more expensive day by day and facing new problems. Constructions have reached their lowest level in the last few years and this issue has caused problems on the supply side.
Central bank statistics also indicate a decrease in the number of transactions compared to before due to the decrease in people’s purchasing power. Experts believe that the increase in the number of transactions in December is due to speculative demand in the market.
This is despite the fact that the cost of housing loans for both married and single people has recently increased and has made it even more difficult for applicants to obtain a loan.
Experts in this field believe that if the inflation rate increases, the price of the dollar rises, and there is no proper monitoring of housing pricing, this market will be in a more critical situation next year, making it practically impossible to buy housing.
