Figures released today show that the number of conversations about house prices continues to rise in Australia, with social gatherings in some suburbs becoming simply unbearable.
Mark Fitch from Richmond in Melbourne’s east said, “I know a guy who had a dinner party in North Melbourne four years ago where there were just four conversations about house prices. If he had a dinner party there today, there’d be minimum six, probably seven conversations. It’s just crazy”.
“That’s nothing!” said Mark’s friend Jenny, before telling her own, really interesting story.
Analyst Robert Erskine said there were still some suburbs where you can attend a social function without conversations about house prices, “but it’s becoming more difficult”.
