Wexford TD Johnny Mythen has expressed deep concern at “staggering” increase of house prices in Co. Wexford…
Sinn Féin TD for Co. Wexford Deputy Johnny Mythen has said that the recent Daft.ie report has shown a staggering increase in house prices in the county.
Speaking on the matter, Wexford TD Johnny Mythen commented:
“The latest Daft.ie report on house prices shows that Co. Wexford had one of the largest inflations of house prices, with a year-on-year increase of a staggering 17.2%.”
“The government do not get the severity of the situation and the reality of the housing crisis on the ground for most people. Hard working young families who haven’t a hope of getting their foot in the door of somewhere safe and secure for their children.”
“Young couples who have moved back to their family homes to save a deposit are seeing their hopes fade further and further out of reach.”
“I have noticed an increase in people moving from Dublin and the surrounds to the North of the county, where house prices and rents are spiralling beyond affordability because of demand,” he stated.
Mythen then highlighted that the market is currently “out of control” due to decades of privatization:
“The scarcity of houses is a result of decades of putting the private market forward as the answer to our housing crisis. This has failed time and time again.
“House prices are out of control. We need public housing and affordable housing built on public lands to be made a priority. The Government are repeating past failings by relying once again on the private market which is driven by vested interests and huge profits,” he said.
