300,000 euros...that is not budgetwoning
Ghent Development Zeemanstuin at the Hogeweg in Sint-Amandsberg is going to be the final phase in. The project, launched as a housing project for families with an average income, has already received criticism because of the high prices. Now comes another 15,000 euros. "Incomprehensible that the city project developers just free play," says the party. "Reasonable prices", says the developer.

In 2014, the project was proposed. Then were also targets specify. The budgetwoningen would be between 218.000 and 271.000 euro is going to cost you. Still a significant sum but to Ghent standards are relatively normal. Great was the surprise when a developer Durabrik the prices announced for the first homes. Turned sharply increased to 235.817 euro (17.067 euro more expensive) and euro 289.432 (18.432 euro more expensive). We are now two years further, and there is a small lot houses. Apparent the price again increased. The most expensive property now costs 304.553 euro. The cheapest (a home with 2 bedrooms) on 240.880 euros without vat and schrijfkosten. Tel that to and it comes in at more than 300,000 euros.

Not for the modal family.

At the LABOUR party, is said to be shocked by the prices. "The prices were higher than announced, and now the budgetwoningen another 15,000 euros more expensive, this cannot continue," said Tom The Master. "The homes are in the meantime more than 30,000 euros more expensive than previously announced. The prices of these budgetwoningen are no bacon for the mouth of a modal Gent family, because you can still easily 60,000 euro cost bijrekenen. With the costs involved you pay 365.000 euros for a "budgetwoning" in Ghent, so that is not budgetwoning but a 'big budgetwoning."

"Incomprehensible that the city project developers just free play and that prices derail. That developers follow, of course, blindly the prijsexplosie on the Ghent housing market," said The Master.

At Durabrik scared of the criticism. "These houses are indeed a bit more expensive than the previous, but they are in terms of insulation and sustainability can also be a level higher. We have prices indexed as agreed, but in Ghent are the prices in five years time, however, a sharper increase than that", says David Mertens of Durabrik.

"of Course, real estate is not cheap, especially in Ghent", Mertens further. "To us, feel are very reasonable prices for a project in Ghent. In the previous phase, our homes also smooth of the hand, yet the proof that they are competitively priced stood.
