Interpretation and observations

About the ratio between the housing price and the construction cost. A higher ratio means the construction sector has higher profit margins (note that a big part of these profit margins are in fact tax payments). In this regard, the year 2006 had the highest margins and 1997 the lowest ones.

(b) Oil price

Precio gasolina

Interpretation and observations

Housing is directly related to energy, since its construction requires large amounts of it. Oil accounts for ≈29% of all the primary energy consumed worldwide (1, 2). It is the current key resource for maintaining and improving the human standard of living, and its price also determines the future of the real-estate market.
