I guess that has already changed.
I suspect so too, espcially that nice uphill are behind the station with the 1920s buildings.
When I was still renting my house (divided into 2 apartments), it was a hobby.
Me too. It was just my home that I planned to return to one day.
Now the situation with landlordism and buy-to-letism has become absurd and toxic, with individuals and companies exploiting society's assets (for that is what housing is) for profit. I read about the disturbing situation in Berlin and hope the city council there intervene.
