The article discusses the shortage of homes in the housing market of Great Britain. The author suggests an obsession with owning property in Britain began after World War II due to government policies and class equality. More people are renting instead of buying due to higher prices and the abolition of tax breaks on mortgages. The British National Housing and Planning Advice Unit warns housing prices could rise if more homes aren't built.
