Bogof Housing Offer In Us

Recommended Posts

Those wanting to snap up a bargain on the back of others' misery, or simply curious bystanders, can even go on a weekly bus trip around Stockton called the Repo Home Tour, set up by a wily entrepreneur, Cesar Dias. "We have one or two tour buses full every week," says Dias. "It becomes a friendly field trip."

More than a year has passed since the sub-prime crisis began to bite and in parts of the US even celebrities are being snared. Evander Holyfield, former world heavyweight boxing champion, is facing foreclosure on his $10m mansion in Atlanta, which has 109 rooms, a bowling alley and 17 bathrooms.

The market is in such a sorry state that a San Diego housebuilder, Michael Crews Development, is offering a "buy one, get one free" deal on new homes. Anyone purchasing a $1.6m luxury detached home in Escondido gets a $400,000 townhouse thrown in. Marketing director Dawn Berry says: "Everybody's talking about such terrible things. We did this to create a buzz."

In California's worst-hit cities, nobody seems hopeful of an upturn. If the slump continues, it won't be long before Stockton's worst-hit streets have more brown lawns than green ones.

Interesting article.

Hmmmm.... If you managed to get two newbuild houses on Bogof then you could knock the walls through and you'd have a normal sized house.
