An interview with Paul Moulton of Isle of Man TV:

Coverage in the Isle of Man Examiner:

Party chairman Michael Josem told the Examiner that the information shows a rise of large rise in the median price of housing from the 1990s.

Throughout the 1990s, a median house in the Isle of Man cost an average of 5.18 times a median salary.

Whereas throughout the 2010s, a median house in the Isle of Man cost an average of 8.94 times a median salary, this is a rise of 72.8% from the 1990s.

Lib Vannin warn of housing crisis

and Manx Radio:

Liberal Vannin say buying a home “increasingly unaffordable”

We need to build more housing to meet the current high demand.

That’s the conclusion of Liberal Vannin chair Michael Josem after a freedom of information request shows buying a home is becoming increasingly unaffordable for Island residents.

Josem calls for more housing to meet demand

My own video on YouTube about the issue:

Michael Josem is a long-term consumer advocate, most prominently as a global leader in combating fraud in the online gambling industry. He was in part the inspiration for the 20th Century Fox Movie, Runner Runner, starring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake.

Josem has over a decade of experience as a senior business leader working across various high-tech and online industries, and takes action to build a better community. His primary volunteer roles include service for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and Graih, the homelessness charity.
