This is more like it, at least someone is trying to find a solution rather than sitting there endlessly saying "high house prices are great, let's keep them up for as long as possible", making it nigh on impossible for anyone to get onto the property ladder without an enormous (unrealistic for most) deposit, as well as being told to live with it, this is the way of the world now, etc etc etc
I don't know what you want TBH. You're asking questions which is great but no one can give you the answer you want to hear.
I don't believe anyone is pretending that the Auckland housing affordability situation is good but it's not going to change anytime soon. I know that isn't palatable but it's also true.
