Do I have to buy a property before I turn 30?

Welcome to the property FOMO episode. We've all read the news headlines, seen the latest auction results and know how challenging the first step on the property ladder can be. So, do you really need to be on it? And by what age? Listen below.


Kiwis love property. We all know the conversation, right – “when are you buying a house?”, “did you see Sally just got on the property ladder”, “OMG these prices are ridiculous at the moment”. And yet, we're told by society, and oftentimes our friends and family, that owning property IS the key to financial success. 

Any type of market that creates a frenzy or the FOMO, the fear of missing out, does create irrational behaviour.

Whilst owning a property does bring many benefits, is there really a certain age you ‘must' tick off this achievement by?

  • FOMO, FOMO and more (property) FOMO
