Guatemala’s hottest housing market gets too hot for some
The road to El Salvador from Guatemala City has become an agglomeration of 67 housing projects.
Some are low-income projects with unit costs of $69,000, but others are houses -- expensive in Guatemalan terms -- of $350,000. There are even mansions in what is Guatemala’s hottest housing market.
But the unplanned growth in housing and commerce has caused severe traffic problems that have discouraged many potential home-buyers.
