Housing prices in Iran have steadily increased over the past year due to various internal and external factors.
And, for the coming months, a number of factors are mentioned to affect the housing market in Iran.
One factor is the possibility of reviving a 2015 nuclear deal signed between Iran and world powers.
Some experts believe that if the mentioned agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is revived, the price of housing will see its biggest drop in history.
As Mostafa Gholi Khosravi, head of Iran’s Syndicate of Real Estate Advisers, recently said: “The housing market is awaiting the results of the [JCPOA] negotiations, and with the positive shock that the agreements bring to the market, sales will increase in the coming months”.
He thinks the market will stabilize towards the buyer and the price will decrease.
