Real estate: the decline in new home sales will last

A dark year. Real estate developers have just had one of the worst years in their history. And the trend of 2024 doesn’t look much clearer… Much to the dismay of the French, who see housing supply dwindle in their regions and departments.

In the second part of our interview, Didier Bellier Ganière returns with us to the challenges of the manufacturers of tomorrow. As environmental issues become more pressing every year and the zero net AI policy is now a well-established rule, developers are being forced to reinvent themselves and build a city upon a city.
