Redefining Home

It’s without a doubt that Australians have long aspired to own a two storey house in a quiet suburb,
with a white picket fence and a garden big enough for backyard cricket – it is, after all, the Great
Australian Dream. We see home ownership as tied to success, security, and an overall better life; but
in the face of such an expensive market, I have seen many despair about their prospects of securing
a property. As a real estate agent of over eight years, I have seen firsthand, too, how families have
struggled to save in order to afford a house. I suppose the issue then is whether it’s worth sacrificing
your lifestyle to save, build, and buy. And if not, then how can we redefine the Great Australian Dream
for ourselves?
