Demand for Residential Real Estate in Metropolitan Cities:
Apartment buildings are replacing houses and bungalows as Dhaka becomes more congested and land prices increase. The city is also moving towards the development of suburbs and suburban areas away from the urban core, which can ease the burden on roads and properties. As the income of the middle-class increases, the demand for housing is also increasing. Most customers prefer to have their own house, rather than spending a significant amount of their monthly income on rent. The increasing availability of home loans increases consumer ability to afford properties, further enhancing the convenience of buying a home. Infrastructural developments can have an impact as they increase the ease of trade around the world, enabling companies to enter areas that may have previously been too costly to operate in. When commercial space rents are growing, companies are also renting floors in residential areas, away from conventional commercial districts such as Motijheel. Commercial real estate applies to businesses, shopping centers, medical and educational establishments, and hotels, among others. Factories, warehouses, and other production plants are part of commercial real estate. The growth of this segment depends on business confidence, which has been bolstered by the rising economic growth of the country.
