    While the constant rise can always been seen with alarm, it is not as if the government is doing nothing, but they can only do so much.

    As far as keeping first home owners out of the market, this will only be a temporary position as has always been the case. First home owners have always found it easier to buy into outer areas of the major cities and really nothing has changed there. You can't be seriously looking to buy into an expensive suburb as a first home owner. Can you?

    This is nothing new.
