Mieten-Explosion wegen Grundsteuerreform
Der Eigentümerverband Haus & Grund warnt vor erheblichen Belastungen für Hausbesitzer und Mieter durch die geplante Grundsteuerreform und fordert die Bundesregierung auf, die Reform zu stoppen.
Wie FOCUS berichtet, hat der Verband für 500 Immobilien in verschiedenen Städten die Grundsteuer nach der neuen Formel berechnet und eine Erhöhung um durchschnittlich das 30-fache ermittelt. In Einzelfällen müssten Eigentümer sogar eine Erhöhung um das 50-fache des jetzigen Betrags hinnehmen.
Der Präsident von Haus & Grund, Kai Warnecke, forderte angesichts der Berechnungen gegenüber FOCUS, die neue Bundesregierung müsse „die Pläne der Länder stoppen. Der Staat darf die Kosten des Wohnens nicht weiter in die Höhe treiben.“
If I would own real estate in London, or even live there, I would sell everything immediately and leave.
London is destined to be destroyed during WW3 and during the ‘3 Days of Darkness’.
Also I would not want to live there after the coming financial collapse and civil war.
A UK co-living company has announced that it will begin accepting down payments made in bitcoin, according to CoinTelegraph, making it that much easier for traders hooked on effortless, outstanding returns to speculate in another bubble-prone market: UK housing.
Co-living pioneer The Collective announced the decision on Tuesday, saying it’s the first developer that will accept payments in cryptocurrency. The company added that it’s exploring how to accept rental payments in bitcoin, which it hopes to implement later in the year. It said that its decision to accept bitcoin was related to demand from international clients.
The company has pledged to perform a “spot conversion” of users’ deposits – a fancy way of saying it intends to hedge its position – so that it bears any financial risk while holding the deposit.
- Britain will need to accommodate 243,000 new households each year
- Net migration accounts for an estimated 45 per cent of this growth
- 109,000 extra homes will be needed every year by migrants and their families
Almost half of new homes built in the next five years will go to migrants, government figures have revealed.
Soaring immigration means that Britain will need to accommodate as many as 243,000 new households each year for the next 22 years, the Department for Communities and Local Government has said.
It is been estimated that an extra 5.3 million new properties could be needed to meet the growth in population, and an extra 2.4 million of the new homes will be needed for migrants alone.
This means that one new home needs to be built every five minutes to house Britain’s burgeoning migrant population.…

Foreclosures suddenly spike most since the last Housing Bust
The total number of homes with foreclosure filings jumped 27% in October from September, when they’d been at the lowest level since 2006. It was the biggest jump in monthly foreclosure filings since August 2007.
Compared to October last year, homes with foreclosure filings still decreased, but this nationwide decrease is covering up what is now happening in 28 states and Washington D.C., according to the Foreclosure Report by ATTOM Data Solutions. There, the inventory of homes with foreclosure filings is beginning to rise even on a year-over year basis. And in some states it soared year-over-year:
- Colorado +64%
- Georgia +22%
- Pennsylvania +20%
- Arizona +17%
- Virginia +15%
- Massachusetts +11%
- New York +10%
… And the easiest way to confirm it, is to look at recent (and not so recent) home listings in Kensington and Chelsea, where we find something stunning: out of 130 pages of adverts, with 15 ads per page, nearly half of all properties, or 53 of the pages show price reductions.
