One of the editor's picks is also the highest rated:
"I'm older, a home owner and I want to see house prices crash. Houses are for living in - not an investment. The situation that we now have, of landlords living off people because they can't afford to buy, is unhealthy and immoral."
Do they have a HPC fan at the BBC or is there a 5th columnist in the BBC webpage staff now?
Another editor's pick:
"Houses where I live have been made so expensive because of the second home buyers. Houses stand empty for 40 weeks a year and local people have to move miles away to buy a home, shops close and public services are cut. In some places over 50% of houses are holiday homes.
Do we have a housing shortage? No
Are house prices over inflated? Yes
Proper taxing of second homes would help"
