Affordable housing is a global concern that continues to shape the real estate landscape. The Affordable Housing Global Market Report 2023 offers a closer look at the current state and future projections of this pivotal market. Let’s delve into the key highlights.

Growing Opportunities: A Glimpse at Market Growth

The global affordable housing market is on an upward trajectory, with positive growth projections in the coming years. In 2022, the market was valued at $51.05 billion, and it is expected to expand to $54.26 billion in 2023, reflecting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3%. The journey doesn’t stop there; the market is set to reach $67.17 billion by 2027, maintaining a robust CAGR of 5.5%.

The Key Catalyst: Home Loans

The growth of the affordable housing market is significantly attributed to the accessibility of home loans. Home loans are a lifeline for individuals and families aspiring to own a home. These loans, typically provided by housing finance institutions, empower people to build, renovate, or purchase homes without incurring the full upfront cost. This accessibility to financial support fosters homeownership and plays a pivotal role in addressing housing affordability concerns.

  • Debt Dynamics: According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, household debt in the United States increased by $148 billion (0.9%) to reach $17.05 trillion in the first quarter of 2023. This surge in household debt indicates a growing demand for financial resources to secure housing, making home loans an essential part of the affordable housing equation.
