By Samantha Krimotat

Regardless of social class or what family your were born into, owning a home is an element in every young Australian’s dream. In many Australian’s eyes, an obvious trophy of success is a growing portfolio. 

This notion has been adopted by Australian’s dating back to the early 1800’s and has remain the centre of focus for many. It is a symbol of financial success, independence and sets one free from whims of an unpredictable landlord.

Owning your own business and being ones’ own boss also represents fulfilment. However for the better part of a century, any reference to Australian aspirations — great or otherwise — meant buying a house. A recent ANU poll found more than three quarters of Australians viewed home ownership as part of “the Australian way of life”.
