Buying a home in Sydney is an ordeal — one that a good many of us Millennial Sydneysiders won’t endure because it’s just too damn expensive.
Indeed, even with an $800,000 windfall, The Block winners Josh Terrett and Charlotte Ekas, both 26, are finding it tough.
The couple are from Manly, and have been attending auctions all over the northern beaches since their April win, to no avail.
They told the Manly Daily that they’d been outbid on properties in Queenscliff and Manly, and another in Willoughby was out of their price-range.
“It was pretty devastating,” Ekas told the Manly Daily.
“We’re lucky with the deposit we have. We want to buy something that’s rundown, preferably in Manly or Fairlight, but I think we’re dreaming.”
