    Abstract :

    Real estate construction delays, cost escalation, and poor quality of construction can be defined as the late completion of projects compared to the planned schedule, cost spent within budget, and according to quality specification. Real estate construction delays, cost control, and poor quality of construction can be minimized only when their causes are identified. The aim of this research study was to identify and rank the most important factors and items causing of construction delays, cost escalation, and poor quality of construction related reasons in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). A structured questionnaire five points Likert scaled based was adopted in this study; 750 questionnaires were distributed to employees working in real estate companies in Addis Ababa city. The ordinal data were analyzed by the Pearson product-moment correlations coefficients, which was used to check the relationship among factors and relative important index method, which was used to rank the factors and items by using relative importance index. Pearson product-moment correlations coefficients research findings revealed that there is no strong positive relationships among three factors i.e., delay, cost increasing, and poor quality in real estate construction projects. Also relative importance index shows that cost increasing factor (0.680) was found to be most obstacles followed by delay in project completion factor (0.627). The findings of this research study would be valuable for all real estate construction professionals involved in the real estate companies.
