Real estate is ridiculously over priced. Then you see multiple housing communities going up that are not within the reach of middle class citizens especially those starting out or close to retirement. I envision a ghost town of these communities one day. People are more interested in padding their pockets rather than investing in real communities.
There always seems to be a catch. I would suggest more owner invested communities such as a group of individuals investing in property together and building a their community together. Such as a tiny home community.
