Significance of 600 Houses by NMC Real Estate in Ethiopia

The contractor leading the project is Huahong Construction, a Chinese company that is not new to similar projects in Ethiopia. The investor is involved in different businesses including the hospitality industry, while its ventures in the real estate industry are relatively new. Currently, about 400 employees including expats are involved in the construction.

NMC Real Estate said it decided to join the real state sector to play its part in the housing problem. Housing is one of the major socioeconomic challenges in the country, mainly in major cities.

The real estate industry was one of the mistrusted sectors for buyers up until recently when newcomers changed the trend by keeping their word on transferring houses on time.
