Australia 2018 = USA 2006

No the following is not about SoCal in 2006, it is about Sydney Aus 2018.

…A couple asked him to sell a two-bedroom weatherboard home in Veron Street in Wentworthville, 27 kilometres west of Sydney, for $950,000 when it was only worth about between $820,000 and $830,000. They bought the home for $790,000, two years ago.
“I asked them where they got that number from and they said that was the number they need to pay back the $200,000 they borrowed from family to buy the home as well as repay their interest-only loan,” he said.
“A lot of them initially paid $2000 to $2500 a month on their interest-only loans, and now they have to pay $4000.”

We all know how that ends.
