In terms of sales, the survey result for the first quarter of 2022 indicated an improvement in sales of residential properties in the primary market, although they were still contracting, he said.

The survey result also shows that non-banking financing is still the main source of financing for residential property development, Erwin explained.

In the first quarter of 2022, 65.50 percent of the total capital requirement for housing project development came from internal funds, he said, adding that from the consumer side, banking financing with credit facilities was still the main choice in purchasing residential properties with a share of 69.54 percent of the total financing.
