If you are not a very successful type of person, or have problems in life you just can’t fix, then renting is your thing. We need renters. Free Sydney July 16, 2021 at 5:09 pm I feel sorry for all the people who listened to the wrong advice and didn’t buy when they had the opportunity at once in a lifetime bargain prices last year and now find themselves stuck in the rent trap with no end in sight. It’s like a jail sentence. All that rent they are paying to savvy mum and dad investors is just dead money. Fishing72MEMBER July 16, 2021 at 5:30 pm Said no one recently- “I feel sorry for all the people who listened to the wrong advice and didn’t buy Bitcoin when they had the opportunity at once in a lifetime bargain prices last April when the price was only $78500 each……” Only half playing Devil’s advocate here. I’m stoked I bought in but I still think that the Ponzi isn’t sustainable long term. Game is still in play. Roulette wheel is still spinning unless you’ve sold out at a profit or shouldered the 30 year mortgage recently. billygoat July 15, 2021 at 6:13 pm Neither chrisrMEMBER July 15, 2021 at 9:28 pm Adding in the effect of strata will be way more than a 5% bump. So many places in Sydney with $6K min, 8K+ quite often and for some ‘luxiry’ developments I even saw almost $20K. Oh and hope you don’t get hit with a one-off levy to cover some unexpected costly repair (cladding and the like). As for housing, it’s harder to allocate costs because they are lumper – big expenses every decode or so rather than an annual cost. Additionally, if buying you probably want something ‘nice’ to stay in a long time but if renting may put up with something more basic to reduce the cost for something you are just hiring. Overall, to me, the equation looks strongly stacked towards renting, at least in Sydney and Melbourne.
