  •  Sid Ahmed Soufiane    


The housing crisis is not only founded in underdeveloped countries, it has also different aspects of concern of the governments of industrialized countries. Governments, local governments and the private sector are expected to implement different strategies to solve this problem.

Our major concern was to focus on the experience of real estate development; however, we have attempted to extend our investigation to capture the degree of satisfaction of needs of residents’ in relation to the new housing policy (five-year program 2005-2009), to solve the housing crisis that continues to grow it.

Real estate development is one of the aspects of housing production as well as the improvement of flat policies. If construction of housing is relatively old, the birth of binding activity of real estate development is rather recent (Law No. 86-07 of 4 March 1986 on property development).

This analysis will then identify the causes of the problem and propose recommendations based on a collaboration between various population sample who are involved in the operation of housing production (developers, prime contractor, prime contractor, …) in order to reduce the shortage in housing and provide a good quality that meets the people needs according to their lifestyle and vocation of space.
