Reforming Latin American Housing Markets: A Guide for Policy Analysis
AbstractHousing is more than just basic shelter - it can be a valuable monetary asset, both to households and nations. This book draws on research by experts at the Inter-American Development Bank and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to examine the economic, social and legal dimensions of housing markets in Latin America. Using lessons learned from the region, the book shows how a developing country can move its housing sector to function more efficiently as a market, with more available financing and a greater role for private developers. An assessment tool is presented to help researchers analyze the effect on national housing markets of economic and demographic variables, tax structures, risk management and other factors.
