Historia del Crédito Hipotecario en Colombia


Author Info

  • Miguel Urrutia Montoya

Se hace una breve historia del crédito hipotecario en Colombia. La cuantificación se puede hacer a partir del año 1923, una vez creados el Banco de la República y la Superintendencia Bancaria a raíz de las recomendaciones de la Misión Kemmerer. En los años treinta y cuarenta la principal fuente de crédito para vivienda fue el Banco Central Hipotecario. En los años cincuenta y sesenta esta fuente fue complementada por el Instituto de Crédito Territorial, y el crédito bancario para vivienda diferente al BCH era mínimo. Sólo a partir de los años setenta en la era del UPAC el sector bancario formal financió el crédito de largo plazo para vivienda. A partir de los años noventa el estado da subsidios a familias de bajos ingresos para que estas puedan acceder al crédito para compra de vivienda de interés social. Finalmente, se ensaya promover la construcción durante la crisis económica de 2008 creando un subsidio de tasa de interés para la compra de vivienda popular.
