Property Rights Index in Venezuela compared to Latin America
Venezuela: Property rights index
A subcomponent of the Index of Economic Freedom, the property rights index measures the degree to which a countrys laws protect private property rights, and the degree to which its government enforces those laws.
Higher scores are more desirable, i.e. property rights are better protected. Scores are from 0 to 100.
The index also assesses the likelihood that private property will be expropriated and analyzes the independence of the judiciary, the existence of corruption within the judiciary, and the ability of individuals and businesses to enforce contracts.
The Global Property Guide considers protection of property rights as a significant factor affecting the desirability of a residential real estate investment.
Venezuela has no house price statistics, but there are construction cost time-series at the Banco Central de Venezuela site, which also has general statistics. There are also statistics at the Instituto Nacional de Estadist'ca under the Ministerio del Poder Popular para la Planificaci'n y Desarrollo.
