Increasing commodity prices and the real estate markets

Posted by admin on August 6, 2022

Commodity prices countrywide have continued to rise at a fast rate since January, which has forced many Ugandans to adjust their budgets in an economy that is recovering from the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means that apart from other demands, it now costs more to put food on the table and generally provide for a family. Consumers have to dig deeper into their pockets to buy some essential goods, whose prices are weighing on the economy’s economic recovery.


How is this affecting the real estate sector?
