Housing Market in Bolivia

The IMF’s latest report on Bolivia says:

“Credit quotas should be relaxed to limit poor-quality credit growth. Interest caps should also be removed so that lending decisions better reflect intrinsic risks. This would remove distortions in the allocation of credit and support desirable allocation of resources in support of growth. ASFI is urged to monitor closely capital quality for its ability to absorb potential shocks and to scrutinize possible risks arising from rapid credit growth to housing. In this context, the Fund welcomes the opportunity to assist the authorities to prepare a real estate price index and urges rapid progress.”

Housing Market in Cambodia

The IMF’s latest report on Cambodia says:

“Real-estate sector risks. Capital continues to flow into the construction sector driven by regional investors and strong demand for residential and retail space. Significant data gaps, including on property prices, complicate the assessment of risks. There is anecdotal evidence that growing oversupply is dampening prices of high-end apartments, while, given the segmented nature of the market, property prices for retail and residential properties remain robust. As a result, affordability of residential housing is being eroded. Credit growth to the real estate sector, a key transmission channel linking credit and economic growth, has averaged around 35 percent since 2016, driven by few banks. Further heightening risks, real-estate developers are reportedly offering mortgages with looser lending conditions, an activity that remains unmonitored and unregulated.”

Housing Market in Kosovo

The IMF’s latest report on Kosovo says:

“With strong growth in property lending (beyond mortgages, this includes commercial and residential construction loans, consumer credit used for housing finance, suppliers’ credit) amid signs of a supply overhang in the capital, the authorities should closely monitor the market and develop a housing price index or create a centralized registry of property valuations to convey the price signal of the property market.”
