  1. I gotchu @mr.yuck Article: For some residents, the gated community in the Arizona desert is their first go at suburban living. The 222 houses have tile roofs, garages and white-fenced backyards where residents host barbecues and their dogs play. But these aren’t forever homes, or even starters: They are one- and two-bedroom rentals, with rents starting at $1,420 a month. Subdivisions such as Christopher Todd Communities on Happy Valley, located about 30 miles outside of downtown Phoenix, were built for renters from the start. Owner and developer Todd Wood, a former
  2. ^^ "You will own less, and be happier" The WSJ article I posted above addresses that. Rental suburb communities are going up to that purpose.

We have something in Canada called CMHC as well, which really fucks first time (and even second/third/etc) homebuyers. We also have something called a stress test which is a way to insure for lenders that an increase in interest rates is able to be absorbed by the lendee.
