Skopje, 9th April 2015 (MIA) – Today, Ministry of Finance awarded the 500th decision under the “Buy a House, Buy a Flat” Project, by which the Government helps citizens to resolve their housing issue through subsidies.
Decision to the 3-member family Dimovski, living in a flat under rent for 15 years, was awarded by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Zoran Stavreski.
– We usually spend the Easter Holidays with our family in our homes. The family, the home and the harmony once again speak in favour of being the real wealth of every man. Therefore, it is my pleasure for having the opportunity to visit the family Dimovski this Easter Weak, as the 500th beneficiary under the “Buy A House, Buy a Flat” Project, Deputy Prime Minister Stavreski said.
He underlined that, so far, the Project has stirred great interest at citizens, due to which, Project Office was opened in the Ministry of Finance, providing information on the offered opportunities regardless of whether it is a matter of “50/50 installment” model or “equal participation” model.
– It is about significant financial support provided by the Government. During the last months, we approved more then 25 applications. They total 524, meaning that the citizens showed a great interest in this Project, Stavreski said.
New flat owners expressed contentment with the opportunity the Government gave them, that is resolving their housing issue with the “equal participation” model.
– After many years living in a flat under rent, we managed to resolve our housing issue thanks to the “Buy A House, Buy a Flat” Project. The installment will be approximate as the rent we paid and therefore we recommend for all those living under rent to dare to make this step and become owners of their home, the new flat owner, Marijan Dimovski, said.
By having discussions with the smallest family member, being happy for finally getting his own room, Deputy Prime Minister Starvreski revealed that when he was small, he was also excited when his family bought a flat. He was so thrilled, as he said, that he was looking through the keyhole since the flat was under construction and closed.
Given that both the citizens show great interest in the Project and one third of the approved applications come from the interior of the country, Ministry of Finance, starting 16th April, plans to organize caravan across the bigger towns.
– We plan for the caravan to visit 10 bigger towns in the Republic of Macedonia where the citizens may, at one place, obtain information on the offered opportunities in terms of prices of flats, location and possibilities for state aid.
The first town to be visited is Ohrid, after which the caravan will head towards the other bigger towns such as Bitola, Prilep, Gevgelija, Strumica, Veles, Tetovo, Kumanovo…
