Owning a home is just a matter or reorganizing priorities

Young people are whining about the cost of housing but it’s been the same way for generations.

My generation worked hard to save our money to be able to afford something. This generation wants the iPhone, iPad, iPod, fancy clothes, nice car and the chance to be seen at the trendiest restaurants.

Even their kids have to have the SUV baby stroller. It’s ridiculous!

My generation worked, saved, and came out ahead. The people who whine about not being able to afford a house just need to reorganize their priorities.

I got stuck paying 17 per cent on my mortgage in the 1980s. And I didn’t make nearly as much as kids today. We survived. They will too.
