The housing section is expected to gain momentum as we head towards the next year. You should thank the upcoming projects for this.

  • Rise in Rental Price:

2015 is likely to witness some rise in the rental costs. The rental price is expected to outpace annual gains of the home-price. This year will bring great satisfaction to the landlord’s market; even as it is expected that the vacancy rates will stay below 5% this year.

  • The Strong Economy:

With the availability of jobs and more money in hand, the economy will be stronger with more demand for houses with the economy gaining momentum, the upcoming projects and lower interest rate, housing will have to cope up with the excessive demand.
