Council Buying Houses

Recommended Posts

http://www.oldham.gov.uk/view_press_releas...S/PR/EPS/086/09

“It is very much an initiative that is fully supported by the Council which has approved Prudential Borrowing of £192k to cover the gap between the grant (£300k) and the total cost of buying the houses and refurbishing them (£492k) as providing additional affordable houses to rent by bringing empty properties back into use is a key priority for the council and its housing partners.â€

5 houses costing nearly 100k each...

Still sounding dear.

What are councils doing propping up property prices - with tax payers money?

It is an absolute scandal.

These people have no idea about 'doing a deal', 'driving a hard bargain' or negotiating.

Of course, it's not their money.

The barometer should be the price pre-boom or the estimated market value minus the bubble.

The real problem we have is that too many simply do not appreciate that there has been a bubble and that price increases of 10% per annum weren't 'normal'.

Council officials know a few builders & someone had a good idea to help the local community?
