In my opinion, this is not just affordability that contributes to the issue. As a self-employed and a 1st generation immigrant who lived out of his car for 2 years, I would mention that the application process is ridiculous. How do I get rental history if I never signed a lease before? Why do I need to wait to get my taxes done to prove that my income is legitimate? Everywhere else, when I spend my hard earned money, my business is appreciated, and I do not see how exactly housing should be different. I do not need no favors. I am good credible creature that has a job, and a private business, over 700 credit score(would be even higher if it wasn't for a PO box address), working all the time, and living life to the fullest, I do not understand why people whose paychecks I am going to sign should act condescending. There are places with "for rent" signs all over the place and I would be glad to do business with them, if it wasn't for their horrible attitudes. I do not see a difference between renter and homeless, both are equally right-less, at least homeless aren't paying other's children college tuitions. Guess I'll just work and sleep till I can buy something "detached", thanks crisis I cant finance and need to come up with cash for the purchase price....
