Parents Wrecking The Lives Of Their Children!

Recommended Posts

A regrettably side effect of bull markets is that idiots grow to believe that they are commercially astute. Nasty little houses were cheap 30 years ago and as prices have rocketed, so millions of half wits have concluded that they understand property markets. Worst of all they are passing this 'wisdom' onto their children.

The reality is that, over the last 30 years first time homes have shrunk from 1200 square feet to 450 square feet and loans have gone from 3x one income to as much as 6x two incomes. In some cases, people have even resorted to sharing ownership with the lender.

If the trend were to continue for another 30 years, first time buyers would be paying 24x income and living in houses of 150 square feet! Not only is this is patently absurd but it is a near certainty that we will see a dramatic price reversal (for reasons of tax, interest rates, incomes and sanity) at some point.

Parents who encourage or help their children to buy today's market are guilty of wicked stupidity. These overpriced boxes will probably become a prison for their children.
