To Resume War Plan Interrupted Building Of Homes (Concluded from page 1) nounced that he already is booked to capacity for all of next summer. Continuing Boom Pent-up demand for new houses probably will keep the boom going, for the 36 new residences erected in the four years preceding the war had not succeeded in easing an acute housing shortage prevailing in the town since 1936. Outbreak of the war and the resulting restrictions on building served to intensify the shortage of dwellings here, and with no new construction available during the conflict the price of houses sky rocketed to the highest Bluffton history. level in affecting impetus in which In the inflation spiral property value, principal was provided a situation families who found themselves with no place to live were obliged to buy a property when they found none available for rental. Spurred By Shortage Relaxation of building controls will find the housing shortage spur ring the post-war building program, and, in turn, as new homes are completed the high prices command ed by “distress buying” are expected to fall rapidly. Going into the post-war period, however, there are fewer available for rent in Bluffton. Many properties rented for years were sold during the war because rent con trols cut into the landlord’s income and because many families usually in the “renter class” had to buy houses In contrast to the scarcity of houses available for rental, many local residential properties are for sale, a situation that is expected to continue until next summer or later. Prices V ary Older properties hav’e figured in the bulk of the sale transactions, and prices have varied widely. In addition to the intrinsic value of houses for sale locally, two other factors have considerable bearing, with the degree of the urgency for the owner to liquidate and the neces sity for the purchaser to ing most transactions, are changing hands at prices ranging from $10,000. buy affect Properties present at $5,000 to In real estate tranactions over the ast several ally have roughly 50 level they before the fleets more accurately the scarcity of rental properties than it does the value of years, properties gener been selling at prices per cent more than the would have commaded war. This situation re- the house. Vicious Circle Under prevailing conditions a vici ous circle is started for a renter when someone buys the house in which he has been living and moves into it. The only recourse for the ousted renter is to purchase a place of his own, and this transaction in turn displaces another renter. Those buying now because it is their only way to obtain a dwelling are caught in the inflated prices brought on by a seller’s market. In the meantime, the housing shortage affecting renters is expect ed to continue until the building boom projected for next spring has made sufficient headway to ease the situation.
