“Everyone should just buy their own homes” Reports Millennial With Windsor Farms Lineage
RICHMOND, Va. — Claiming he had the perfect solution to the rising cost of living problem throughout the city, Michael Carson, a 33-year-old raised in the Windsor Farms neighborhood of the city, has suggested that everyone should just buy their own homes, sources confirmed Monday.
“The answer is pretty clear — young people simply need to invest in real estate instead of wasting money every month through renting,” Carson, who grew up in a 7,000 sq/ft mansion in Windsor Farms and whose father owns nine auto dealerships that his grandfather started in the 1960s, said in a statement on Facebook, further suggesting that the younger generation should be more responsible about their spending habits.
“Millennials love to complain on social media about ‘landlords’ and ‘capitalism,’ but when was the last time you saw them forgo their morning coffee from their local brewhouse a few days a week in an effort to save up money for a downpayment? If folks would spend less time playing cornhole at breweries and more time investing the money their parents gave them, they’d find themselves in a better situation.”
Carson, who purchased his first home in 2010 at the age of 21 after his father gifted him $45,000 for a downpayment, added that millennials could even dabble in owning rental properties if they put their mind to it.
“I own three rental properties through my dad’s side hustle as a professional landlord,” he continued. “Through real estate, I’ve developed multiple income streams to be able to afford what I have. If I can do it, then anyone can. No excuses.”
At the time of reporting, Carson was seen increasing the monthly rent on his properties in what he described as a smart and tactical economic move that his generation could learn from.
