Based on this result, conclusion was drawn that general economics and government policies have crucial and negative effect on building constructions as it holds back majority of having a place to call their home. The result obtained from our research proved that everyone can own a building if government reduces the effect of economics and their policies on building constructions.

Also teams should be assign to ensure all this are put in place and strictly observed, it is expected of government to reduce economical and governmental policies that are affecting building construction so as to make it easier for everyone to own a home.
