There is no possibility for young individuals today to purchase homes. Unless they’re getting their money from alternate sources, they will be unable to afford it.

I have gathered references from different countries to show you it’s a global issue.

No matter how dire the truth is on a global scale we all need to hear it, thank you.

You're welcome. We just need to face the music!

It's astounding the amount of debt there is globally, along with the many bubbles ready to pop. Thank you David for this insightful post, glad you are here on Steemit. I'm a regular listener on your YouTube channel as well.

Thank you for the supporting me on both.

I am little worry about the U.S house market too. I am planning to buy a rently property but not sure this is a good time.

If the rent exceeds the costs, it's not a worry so much because rental markets usually get even hotter during bad times. The price of the property could crash but your passive income is the most important part.

Sadly but true most are renting and still trying to pay off debts. The fact that rental prices keep going up doesn't help at all!

Exactly.
