An increasing number of the middle class in developed countries
see property and houses in particular as a way to becoming rich, a
way to make hundreds of thousands of dollars profit, tax free - you
don't need a university education, just a degree in common
We all know or have heard of someone who'd made a fortune selling houses. It is tantalizingly within reach of many of us and therein lies the problem - most of us buy a house thinking it's a simple matter to turn that investment into a profit.
Most of us fall into the House Trap. This series includes four commercial one hour documentaries that shed light on what we believe is a potentially destructive trend in property marketing and ownership that needs to be addressed.
House Trap starts Saturday 31st July at 4pm on TVNZ Heartland.
