It's supply versus demand. Not of houses but of women. Since more men than women at present, therefore women will tend to set conditions to try and gain favorable pre-nuptial needs, the biggest being a house.

Of course this is just social darwinism. In the larger picture, it motivates men to try and do better. In the smaller picture, it reeks of mercenary mercantilism. Will a woman and therefore her family unit later in life be truly happy if it turns out later in the fortunes of destiny that the debt her bf turned husband has to incur to buy a house to qualify for her hand actually crimps his ability from the outset to become prosperous and therefore afford her a bigger house if only she has been patient?  A housing loan doubles the cost of the house in total whose difference could have been used for business; if the house appreciates in value, so will other houses that will need to be purchased in order to live in should the house be sold for profit.

Rent and save up first until one can afford a smaller loan to pay less monthly interest so as to save cashflow in order to survive better.

Ok?

Honestly speaking,It is very common in China nowadays,if you want to marry a girl,you need to have an apartment. Some times, may be the girl does not really care about if you have an apartment,but her parents will not.It is our history culture that people must have there own place to live.
