Would you like to buy an unaffordable house?
Whilst talk of huge financial turmoil still over inflated debts caused by house price inflation and insane lending, it does strike me as particular silly that this one phrase is still used.
All housing needs to be affordable to the masses! Council waiting lists are packed with people desperate for somewhere to live, yet still developers will be allowed to build unaffordable housing.
