As in many countries of the world, the Ethiopian real estate has been booming for much of this decade. In many areas, prices doubled and even tripled in a span of a few years. The highest appreciation in home prices occurred in the five-year period between 2003 and 2008. The real estate boom has slowed considerably over the past year or so but not as bad as in other countries.
The leading story this week was the death of Abate Balcha in Miami, Florida, USA. He was found dead on New Years Day in his apartment in Miami. By all accounts, the 39-year old Samuel Abate Balcha had no enemies. His killer has yet to be found.
