Why 'how I afforded a house' articles are misleading

Recommended Posts

https://www.theguardian.com/science/brain-flapping/2017/nov/16/why-how-i-afforded-a-house-articles-are-misleading-and-bad-psychologically

Article from the Guardian, discussing the poor statistics and motives of all the "I'm a millennial and I managed to buy a house" stories.

Quote

...is it the result of a power-structure based on property-inflated wealth? One which owns much of the media, where those involved can see the foundations of their world crumbling. And, rather than make drastic changes that involve much self-sacrifice, are instead trying to shift the blame on the younger generation who are stuck dealing with the consequences of their greed, and desperately cherry picking for any examples, however tenuous, that support this argument? It’s basically the real-estate equivalent of snake oil.
