The cost of living continues to rise, making it increasingly difficult for young Australians to achieve the dream of homeownership. John Longhurst explores the challenges facing the younger generation in the current housing market.

As the waves crashed against the shore, Bazza pondered the state of the economy and the elusive promise of a brighter future. The media frenzy surrounding budget analysis and government promises only added to the uncertainty that many young people face in today’s society.

Treasurer Jim Chalmers’ recent budget announcement offered a glimmer of hope with a $300 energy bill rebate, but for many young Australians, the dream of owning a home still feels out of reach.

John Longhurst, a former industrial advocate and political adviser, sheds light on the struggles facing young Australians in the current housing market. As the cost of living continues to rise, it is essential to address the challenges that prevent many from achieving the Great Australian Dream of homeownership.
