Accelerating public investments may cause housing developers to run out of workers, and the prices of construction materials and labor will go up. Thus, increased “public” demand in a relatively short period of time may increase housing prices.

The accumulation of investments may result in a sharp increase in the prices of many construction materials and labor costs.
