Many countries are looking to resolve the dilemma of improving housing conditions while reducing government expenditure, and social housing is at the crux of the tension between these goals. Policy-makers, practitioners and academics want to know how other systems work and are looking for something written in clear English, where there is a depth of understanding of the literature in other languages and direct contributions from country experts across the continent. Social Housing in Europe combines a comparative overview of European social housing written by scholars with in-depth chapters written by international housing experts. The countries covered include Austria, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, The Netherlands and Sweden, with a further chapter devoted to CEE countries other than Hungary. The book provides an up-to-date international comparison of social housing policy and practice. It offers an analysis of how the social housing system currently works in each country, supported by relevant statistics. Topics covered for each country include: What is considered to be ‘social housing’ What types of households live in the tenure Who allocates the housing and what criteria they use How new construction is financed and what form it takes Who owns social housing What kinds of government subsidies it receives Rent levels and how they compare to rents in the private sector Development of policy towards social housing—the key milestones over the last 40 years Current policy debates These country-specific chapters are accompanied by topical thematic chapters dealing with subjects such as the role of social housing in urban regeneration, the privatisation of social housing, financing models, and the impact of European Union state aid regulations on the definitions and financing of social housing.

And, in fact, they view market downturns as opportunities. Part I in Investing in Income Properties reviews the basics of real estate and how to get started. It also identifies the key players on a winning investment team. Then Part II explains how to obtain the cash resources to begin investing in winning income producing properties by using the authors unique Big Six formula. These chapters show how to structure deals with the most leverage and extraordinary rates of return. The third part of the book underscores the money to be made in buying and selling homes and condos while offering strategies for picking up properties below market value. The final section of the book tells how to convert apartments, office buildings and warehouses into condominiums, as well as how to recognize opportunities offered by vacant land.
Wenn Sie Ihre Immobilie veräußern, hängt die Steuerpflicht davon ab, wie Sie Haus oder Wohnung in den letzten Jahren vor dem Verkauf genutzt haben: Verkaufen Sie eine vermietete Immobilie innerhalb den zehn Jahren nach der Anschaffung, fällt auf den Veräußerungsgewinn Steuer an.

The financial deregulation of the last quarter century has meant large flows of funds around the world seeking the highest risk-adjusted return for investors. Real estate is now established as an important asset class and advances in information technology provide the necessary tools to complement global developments in real estate finance and investment. A variety of investment vehicles have emerged, and Real Estate Finance in the New Economy ex amines these along with financing and risk in the context of globalization, deregulation and an increasingly integrated international world economy by exploring questions like: How have real estate financial structures evolved as economies grow and become internationalised? What role do economic change and financial systems play in the development of real estate investment? Are the risks associated with the new economy really new? What is the future direction for real estate financing? The authors develop an economic framework for discussions on individual financial products to examine how real estate financial structures change with economic growth and internationalisation and also to show how developments in real estate finance impact economic growth.

This book explains the process of property investment appraisal – estimating both the most likely selling price (market value) and the worth of property investments to individual or groups of investors (investment value). Valuations are important: they are used as a surrogate for transactions in the construction of investment performance and they influence investors and other market operators when transacting property. Valuations need to be trusted by their clients and valuers therefore need to produce rational and objective solutions. In a style that makes the theory as well as the practice of valuation accessible to students and practitioners, the authors provide a valuable critique of conventional valuation methods and argue for the adoption of more contemporary cash-flow methods. They explain how such valuation models are constructed and give useful examples throughout. The UK property investment market has been through periods of both boom and bust since the first edition of this text was produced in 1988 and the book includes examples generated by the different market states: for example, complex reversions, over-rented situations and leasehold examples are in ready supply and are examined fully by the authors. They have retained the book’s basic structure and thrust, setting out fundamental investment and appraisal theory in Part One of the book, but adding a new chapter on building and modelling cash flows as a precursor to the investment material in Part Three. The heart of the book remains the critical examination of market valuation models addressed in Part Two – it remains the case that no other book addresses this issue in detail.
