I’m worried that young Australians are being locked out of home ownership.
Joe Hockey seems less worried - his advice for affording a home is to ‘get a good job that pays good money.’
We all know housing affordability is a lot more complicated than that.
Here in Canberra, plenty of people have great jobs yet struggle to put together a deposit when the median house price is over $635,000.
Those who can find a way into the market will carry mortgages multiple times the size of their yearly income.
There’s no quick fix to housing affordability. But my party is determined to look for solutions.
We’d like to hear from you about your priorities and ideas.
