Housing prices too high

Dear Editor:

I am glad that the housing situation in Minto is finally being addressed.

Houses are severely overpriced, and couples working in Minto cannot afford the homes on the market; most are renting and rent is outrageous. The sad reality for many is they have to either scrimp and save and forego having a family to possibly afford a home in Minto or stay in their cramped quarters and have a family.

Something must be done to drive down the cost of homes to where they were before the 2017 jump.
