The broken housing market – houses for income potential not for housing need!

An advert caught our eye!

Large detached barn conversion with income potential. Set in beautiful landscaped gardens of approximately one third of an acre
Part reverse layout with large kitchen family room on the first floor. Two driveways, both with off road parking for many vehicles

The Granary is located in the heart of the hamlet of Helland, just a short distance from Hellandbridge and the Camel Trail. The main A30 trunk road is only a short drive away giving easy access to the west of the county and Exeter to the east is only an hour’s drive. The larger towns of Bodmin and Wadebridge and their large range of amenities are only a few miles away and both the north and south coasts are only approximately 20 minutes away.

Reports on the housing market invariable focus on supply rather than demand. The use of housing for income potential seems not to be recognised as an issue. Is this a reflection on the fact that many of those producing the reports are themselves beneficiaries of such use!
