It's not enough to just set a goal.

One should also have an idea of ​​how to achieve it.

When the federal government announced its promise of 400,000 new buildings per year in November, the doubts in the industry were high.

In fact, it can now be seen that in 2021, 4.2 percent fewer new apartments were built, and the number fell below 300,000.

The reality gap has grown to 100,000.

Corona and the global demand for real estate fueled by zero interest rates have been driving prices for a long time.

Skilled workers, energy, transport, wood, bricks, steel, pipes - everything in construction is expensive and scarce.

The orders are piling up higher and higher, but construction still doesn't go faster because the companies simply can't keep up.

The war in Ukraine has exacerbated the misery, but it hasn't caused it.

Dealing with tax incentives now or even talking about upper price limits would increase demand without an apartment being built faster.

When reality does not match the goals, it is advisable to adjust the goals.
