After some years of slowing growth, Kuwait’s real estate sector saw signs of a significant revival in 2018, with sales increasing and prices stabilising. At the same time, new projects are under way, with a number of large-scale, mixed-use developments nearing completion. Better economic growth overall, fuelled by rising oil prices and a government infrastructure programme, has also created a more buoyant economy, despite some global and regional headwinds. A limited supply of land is another factor increasing prices, although this has also caused bottlenecks in meeting housing demand, with Kuwaiti citizens particularly affected.
