Affordability Crisis: Low-Income Workers Can't Afford A 2-Bed Rental Anywhere In USA

Recommended Posts

Big deal.

I'd hazard a guess that in the UK low income workers can't afford a 1-bed rental purely out of their own income (i.e. without having to make use of LHA, etc).  Those Yanks don't know how good they've got it!

Its why Feds raising rates.

Wot? So our U.S debt ridden/addicted cousins across the pond will have even less money in their pockets to spend on rent - after paying higher interest on everything else in their lives?

No.

Lower incomee earners prefer cash based invesments.

Higher IRs will give them a better return and reduce housing asset prices.

The Us had a much bigger hpc in many places , compared to the uk, so housing should be more affordable in US

THIS.

The poor think they are better off with low IRs, but it's the low IRs ( high asset -prices ) that is destroying them.

The poor are stupid.

Low income workers don't have much debt. You have to be a middle or high earner to qualify for an eye watering mortgage.

The rich can also be stupid......that is why sometimes they end up being poor.... anecdotal of course.😉

They dont have a lot of debt, in the big scheme of things.

But they pay thru their noses for it.

Anything that encourages lower income people to save and avoid loan sharks/ManFrom Provi i.e. raising IRs for cash is a *GOOD* thing.

QE - the fuxxed up idea that credit can be centrally planned by CB making credit decisions and picking winners i.e. the asset rich and heavily in debt is fuxxed up beyond belief.

The poor have limited choices.

That is very true.  The system is designed to keep them down.

All the promises of social mobility, classless society etc are ********, propaganda spouted by the upper class people who will do everything to maintain their position and keep people in their social structure.

Problem: low income earners can’t afford a 2bed

Solution: just bang the rents up to price out the mid income earners too and attract some premium high income scumbag tenants (no pets no children no pictures no blacks no Mexicans no)

 

KER-CHINGA!!
