I bought a house about six months ago. Kinda feeling like a mope now though because it looks like they want to make it impossible to evict anyone ever again, so I could've rented a mansion until it fell apart for a lifetime cost of just the first months rent plus a security deposit.
(Seriously, I predict renting is about to get a lot more expensive and harder to access for people without steady jobs. Basically lots more people are headed to the projects---or the streets. 🙁)
@dsfgs my US state has progressive real estate taxes, that doesn't solve the problem of nobody wanting to rent to people who aren't required to pay.
