Our housing market is growing out of reach, and out of control.

Cheese Squeeze

gen-squeeze-profile-square_web.jpgBio: We’re feeling squeezed by housing prices and incomes. We currently live with 4 people in 700 sq ft basement suite. Myself, my wife, 9 year old-daughter and we rent a room to my sister. One bathroom. Also houses my office. So we’re adapting by living in an affordable space that’s way too small.  If we rented something that was the ‘right size’ we’d be bleeding money big time. As it is, we’re saving up a down-payment by squeezing into this living arrangement hoping to be able to afford a place of our own soon. UPDATE: Matt and the family have since moved into a new home in Langford, with the $5,000 they won in our Squeeze Back Video Contest providing a tiny boost.
