Real-estate market is in the grip of recession these days, as builders are not interested in starting new projects given the back-to-back rise in the prices of construction materials, wages, services and permits, Mohammad Mortezavi, the head of Iran Mass Builders Association, said in an article for the Persian daily Jahan-e Sanat. A translation of the text follows:
