  Hong Kong Housing Authority and Housing Department - Estate Management Advisory Committee
Satisfactory estate management is a result of collaborative effort by residents, committees and the estate community.
To ensure that estate management is effective, efficient and is attuned to tenants' needs and aspirations, and to encourage residents to be more attentive to and more ready to participate in matters of their concern, we introduced a pilot scheme on Estate Management Advisory Committee (EMAC) in eight of our estates.
The establishment of EMACs decentralizes estate management to the local level, aims to help enhance the communication between tenants and the management, and encourage tenants' participation in estate matters.

Other signs of a bubble are that housing prices far exceed rents for equivalent housing or the supply of land is far greater than required to meet demand.
Housing prices have increased 36% in the past year and 65% in the past three years.
To many builders and mortgage lenders, a housing slowdown might be a good thing, removing the speculative froth from housing markets and bringing more stability.

  Housing estate
A Housing Estate is a medium-to-low density residential area, usually part of a suburb of a town or city in a developed country.
In contrast to high density housing, such as tower blocks, town housing or the older-style rows of terraced houses associated with the industrial revolution, housing estates usually feature detached or semi-detached houses with small plots of land around them forming gardens.
Housing estates are the usual form of residential design used in New towns, where estates are designed as an autonomous suburb, centred around a small commercial centre.

 MIT CRE : Housing Affordability Index
Further, the goal of affordable housing policy should be to not only provide suitable structure for households but also to supply units that are accessible to jobs, are in safe areas, and have decent schools.
Therefore, counting affordable houses, condos, and apartments is not sufficient – to get answers that are actually useful, important employment, amenity, and transit information must be considered to understand whether the town in which a household is located is better, worse or equal to the average town in some respect.
The same method is used to adjust for job accessibility, except that housing units in towns with better than average accessibility are given a cost rebate while units in low accessibility places are assessed an additional cost as was done for schools and open space.

 Measuring Social Capital in a Networked Housing Estate   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Social problems around the estate, not necessarily caused by residents, include a flourishing and visible drug trade, graffiti and vandalism of public areas and fear of personal violence [2].
Those who work closely with residents and residents themselves have commented that although there are routine problems between neighbours on the estates, such as disputes about noise, children or pets, many families are reluctant to resolve or discuss such disputes in public tenants' meetings; instead, they prefer to be transferred off the estate [5].
The use of local services and facilities was explored, including the local neighbourhood house, health centre, library and swimming pool; participants were also asked about involvement in local groups and residents' associations, and about the extent to which they followed political decision-making at the estate local, state and federal level.

 Lilayi Housing Estate - Lusaka
Until now the average Zambian has had little or no chance of being able to afford to buy their own home.
This was partly due to the absence of affordable and available housing and related infrastructure within the market place but was also due to the lack of accessible financing within Zambia offering reasonable repayment terms and conditions.
Through the provision of approximately 3700 housing units, the construction and development of all municipal facilities including roads, water, sewerage and street lighting, and a 15 year Home Ownership repayment scheme, the Lilayi Housing Estate provides the ideal solution.

 Estate scheme to cut public housing - National - theage.com.au
Up to 140 public housing places could be lost under the $250 million redevelopment of the Carlton public housing estate.
The reduction in public housing places has angered welfare groups, which say the state budget did nothing to reduce the 35,000 households on the public housing waiting list.
People would move to other estates during the upgrade and some would choose to stay once they were settled, making it easier for the Government to manage the reduction, he said.

 House Buying - Dealing With Housing Estate Agents
It is important to develop a good relationship with the estate agent as they will remember you and take you to the good houses first.
A good relationship will also pay off later down the line of buying a house as the estate agent will chase up vendors and solicitors if things are going a bit slowly.
Don't forget that the estate agent is acting on behalf of the seller and not you - the more you are prepared to pay, the higher their fee so be careful what you give away about how much you can afford.
