The Ugandan government recently unveiled its budget for the 2024/25 fiscal year, outlining plans to accelerate economic growth. While the budget doesn't directly target real estate as a whole, some key areas could indirectly impact the sector. Let's break down what this means for you.

Focus on Growth.

The budget prioritizes economic expansion, aiming for GDP to reach Shs 225.5 trillion (USD 60 billion). This growth is projected to be driven by increased activity in the oil and gas sector, with first oil production expected in FY2025/26.

Impact on Real Estate.

A growing economy often translates to a rise in demand for housing, particularly in commercial sectors. This could benefit developers building offices and apartments in areas with projected job growth. Additionally, increased government spending could lead to infrastructure improvements, making certain locations more attractive for real estate development.

Affordability Concerns Remain.

The budget does not explicitly address the challenge of affordable housing. This remains a significant concern, especially for Uganda's lower-income groups. While the focus on economic growth might eventually lead to increased overall income levels, it's crucial to bridge the gap in the short term.

Possible Opportunities.

Investors and developers should watch for initiatives that could indirectly benefit the real estate market. These might include.

  • Infrastructure Development. Increased spending on roads, bridges, and transportation could open up new areas for development and improve accessibility in existing ones. Improved infrastructure typically leads to an appreciation in property values, as areas become more accessible and attractive for both residential and commercial purposes. Developers and investors are likely to see increased demand for properties in regions benefiting from these upgrades.
  • Small Business Support. Programs that provide capital for small businesses could lead to job creation, potentially boosting demand for housing.

Challenges and Considerations

While the budget presents numerous opportunities, there are also challenges to consider.

  • Implementation. The effectiveness of these budgetary measures depends heavily on the government's ability to implement them efficiently.
  • Economic Stability. Macroeconomic factors, such as inflation and interest rates, can impact the real estate market. Ensuring economic stability is crucial for the sustained growth of the sector.
  • Regulatory Environment. Clear and consistent regulations are necessary to foster a conducive environment for real estate development. Any ambiguity or frequent changes in policies can deter investment.


The 2024/25 budget offers a glimpse into Uganda's economic direction. While there's no direct focus on real estate, factors like economic growth and infrastructure development could have a positive impact on the sector. As the budget unfolds, investors and developers should stay informed to capitalize on potential opportunities in the real estate market and also adapt to the challenges.
