WE WANT TO BRING A HOPE AND SMILE TO EACH HOUSEHOLD IN TANZANIA BY PROMOTING HOME OWNERSHIP. A JOURNEY WE MUST TAKE…
TURNING A HOUSING PROBLEM INTO A GROWTH OPPORTUNITY Facts about the housing industry in Tanzania More than 99% of Tanzanian homes built out of pocket It takes 5-10 years to complete a house under the current system instead of months the dead capital on stock of houses > total bank deposits 12 Reaching the New Heights, with Fresh Thinking!
TURNING A HOUSING PROBLEM INTO A GROWTH OPPORTUNITY More facts about the housing industry in Tanzania Total housing deficit = 3m units or $ 180bn, Demand = 200,000 p.a. Or $ 12bn ! Only second to Gold Industrialization and standardization in the construction sector held back Urban population is approx. 37.5% and growing Current Housing deficit + annual demand + the population growth + urban migration = Big Hyper-Growth Opportunity That Tanzania can leap on it 13Uplifting the face of Tanzania & Improving it's Citizens Life
Recent Developments Reforms in Tanzania Liberalization of the Banking Sector in Today, 42 banks operate in Tanzania from only 4 banks in 1993, and the credit expansion to private sector has been growing at an average rate of 35% in the last 5 years. Review of the 2004 Land Act to cover for the Mortgage finance. There was no participation from Commercial banks in Mortgage Financing because of the existing land act Commercial Banks concern have now been addressed and the new mortgage finance law has been put in place, this has encourage more banks to start offering mortgage finance which is likely to address the Mortgage finance affordability as we see more players Unit titles law (Condominium Law) has been put in place. This will allow for Developers to undertake big projects and sale the apartment units. In turn, this will increase the affordability by reducing the inbuilt cost of infrastructure.
Recent Developments Reforms in Tanzania Re-structuring of the Ministry of land especially on the title registry section and decentralization of the power for commissioner for land. This ought to increased the speed and efficient of issuing and registering titles Introduction of the full fledged Housing directorate in the MoLHHD Our Government is very focused on the housing sector, the new directorate will play a key role on coordinating the strategies and the plans execution.
Recent Developments Reforms in Tanzania A reform on Social Security funds and insurance regulatory frame work that will allow for long-term financing to be strategically channeled on respective long-term financing like Housing Financing is underway The Government in partnership with World Bank has set the liquidity facility to support the Housing Financing Lending Institutions. Macro-Economic stability remains to be on focus Exchange rates: Tanzania has a reasonable FX reserves with the 4 months import cover. Interest rates: Good efforts in Lowering of Treasury Bills Interest rates, currently at around 7%. Fiscal policy: There has been some good measures on increasing the tax collection.
Affordable Housing - Key Challenges Housing Financing There’s still lack of depth of housing financing, where the maximum tenor offered is 20 years and inactive capital market. House Supply improvement With the previous lack of Mortgage Financing, there was also lack of Finance to Developers. Appropriate Technology Government support and other stake holders inputs is still needed in most emerging economies to support the research and development in the sector Public Awareness on the new laws There’s a public awareness campaign to educate the public on the current key opportunities coming out of the new laws. The Government through the MoLHHD is working on this matter. The Regulatory framework for Valuer’s, Developers and property agency is under development

GOAL ONE: To become a leading real estate developer : 1) To construct a minimum of 10,000 medium and high class houses for sale and lease by June Rationale: Despite the enormous demand for houses in Tanzania, which is in a tune of three million and growing at a rate of 200,000 units per annum, NHC has not been able to undertake mass housing schemes due to lack of conducive funding environment. The changing funding environment coupled with housing shortage will now enable NHC to undertake massive construction of houses. 2) To construct a minimum of 5,000 units of social housing by June Rationale: Provision of social housing is necessary in order to uplift the living conditions of the low income group. However, NHC will only participate in provision of social housing if it is assured of at least to break even. Otherwise, the government is also expected to participate by granting subsidies or setting up a special programme. Uplifting the face of Tanzania & Improving it's Citizens Life

It will acquire parcels of land, plan and service them. Furthermore, it will sell some of the projects to other developers and retain some for its own development. It will also ensure that other developers comply with development regulations and standards. 4) To mobilize investment funds to the tune of TAS 1.5 trillion by June Rationale: In order to achieve the target of constructing a minimum of 15,000 units, mobilization of funds is necessary. Funds will be mobilized from different local and foreign sources. NHC will use its property wealth to leverage these funds and service the costs of loans. 5) To embark on intensive marketing of houses constructed for sale by Dec Rationale: Aggressive marketing is necessary in order to appreciate the market needs, tastes, life style, spending patterns, fashions as well as creating interface between buyers and banks so as to stimulate demand.
