If mortgage interest and property tax is personally deductible, and if repairs and home improvements costs that get rolled into mortgages, so that interest is also deductible, so should the portion of HOA fees that pay for repair and improvement debts.

If IKEA made IKEA++, where they have items that are 1.5x to 2x the price they normally sell, in exchange for higher quality small parts, like using all metal vs a combo of metal or plastic, or spending %20 more for a product to top it up quality wise, or just offer a very long lasting material set, I'd bet they kill it.

Now, 2 people who work professional job might be able to buy a house, in their 30s. Kids still need to be 'supervised'.

All 3 generations had industrial birth control available to them.
