Are you a NIMBY - one of those people who are all for new developments but Not In My Backyard? Well if so, you may be helping make Australian houses some of the most unaffordable in the world. Joe takes our four leaders of tomorrow on a journey to discover why real estate is so expensive. Only twenty years ago, owning a home with a backyard was an achievable dream for most young families, but since the real estate boom in the 1990s and at the beginning of this century, prices have more than doubled, way outstripping any rises in wages.
