  1. More bullshit money laundering. These people get these houses tax free under the guise of Social Services. They then secure funding to renovate the houses once again under the guise of Social Services. Once the property has been renovated to four or five times the market value they purchased it at, they miraculously declare all their clients cured and well and can go out into society. and of course sell their Prime real estate at a hefty profit.

    rinse and repeat!
