Invited Thursday from Europe 1, Alain Dinin, CEO of the real estate group Nexity, regrets that the issue of construction is absent from the recovery plan.
While the supply of new housing is "low", he calls for "relaunching the construction plan".
If the stone remains a "safe haven" for many French people and that demand is growing stronger, housing construction is in crisis.
In 2020, only 380,000 building permits were thus authorized.
A situation that worries Alain Dinin, CEO of the real estate group Nexity, who calls at the microphone of Europe Soir Thursday to raise political awareness and "relaunch the construction plan".
"On housing, demand is extremely high, people need housing," he says.
"We are a country with strong population growth, unlike Germany. We will be 4 million more families in the next ten years."
"The most difficult clientele to accommodate is the clientele of first-time buyers"
Problem, construction is in crisis.
"There are immediate and long-term consequences", indicates Alain Dinin, warning "that there will be no new housing for people who need housing, who are arriving on the market".
Today, he continues, "the most difficult clientele to accommodate is the clientele of first-time buyers, people who, between them, have less than 3,000 euros in monthly income".
For the latter, regrets Alain Dinin, "nothing is done, everything is difficult, loans are difficult to obtain. Housing is expensive, and there is nothing to suggest that it will be less tomorrow" .

"People will have more and more difficulty finding accommodation"
"Prices have doubled in the last ten years", the guest from Europe 1 still reminds. "We are not building enough so the supply is low."
And "as the prices will not fall, people will have more and more difficulty in finding accommodation".
Faced with this situation, Alain Dinin regrets that the subject of construction is "completely forgotten" from the government's stimulus plan.
"It's surprising, almost shocking, and it's going to have to change pretty quickly," he adds.
"If, at some point, the politicians do not tell themselves that we have a major socio-economic phenomenon, we will be at an impasse", concludes the CEO of Nexity, who calls in particular to "increase the offer", and to "relaunch the construction plan".
