    In 2015-2016, several regulatory steps were taken by the government and the banks in order to affect the industry’s supply and demand. For example, demand-curtailing steps were taken aimed both at young couples (an increase of the mortgages interest rates by the banks) and at investors (governmental increase of investment apartments purchasing tax and taxation of third apartments). From the supply aspect – the “Mehir La’Mishtaken” (government price-capped) program was expanded, and the marketing of tens of thousands of reduced-price apartments for eligible candidates has begun.
