Zac Trolley owned a condominium in Calgary but sold it and took on student loans to study engineering. Upon graduating and starting an entry level job, he found that housing prices had risen considerably, and it was now more difficult to find suitable housing on his own.
“I was starting at the bottom of the ranks. It was challenging to find a place I could afford,” Trolley said. “I was living with my parents ’cause I didn’t want to move three or four times looking for the right place.”
