Housing Choices Managing Director Michael Lennon says more quality, sustainably built, affordable homes – like our Nightingale Housing Bowden development in Adelaide – are required in South Australia as a bridge between private rental, public housing and homelessness. Nightingale Bowden’s carbon-neutral design mitigates energy prices while the quality of the building materials ensures the homes will stand the test of time.
“The future of homeownership is grim for anyone under 30 on a low to moderate wage. For young people, the opportunity to get into the market without a financial leg-up from parents is close to zero,” he writes in The Advertiser.
“There was Gen X, Gen Z and now there’s Gen R – the generation that will be renters, in many cases for life. Almost a third of us.
“It is into this maelstrom community housing providers have stepped up as they become an evermore crucial, affordable bridge between private rental, public housing and potential homelessness.”
