THE AGE (letters to the editor)

The impossible dream

A small but well-presented Victorian weatherboard cottage in our street sold at auction recently for $923,000. It was the highest priced auctioned house on the day in Richmond. It was sold to a middle-aged couple who outbid a young couple. This week, plastered over the sold sign, is a “ready for lease” sign. It is listed on the agents’ website at $600 a week. How on earth can young folk get into the housing market when they are outbid by the well off, who may then negatively gear properties for financial gain?
