    Hi there, I am currently running a campaign called Bust the Housing Bubble. My campaign is about tackling the current housing crisis in Australia by informing individuals about the current housing climate in Australia, as well as providing them with ways to cope with the instability of the bubble bursting. The main social concern is no matter how hard they work, the prices of properties are increasing at a higher rate than their salaries, making it much harder for them to save. Twenty to thirty years ago, individuals were able to enter into the property market on salaries that were a lot lower than the average salary of 2017. Their dream of owning a piece of land or family home was the reality. Today, the reality of owning a property, whether it is a first home or investment, is a dream. I would greatly appreciate it if I could gain your support in my campaign.
