Because the housing market is so high, many people are paying their mortgages by renting out part of their homes. Home owners who don’t need the money are also taking advantage of this and charging outlandish prices. In Williamsburg many years ago , shtreimelach became unaffordable. One of their Rebbe’s said that if they don’t drop the prices, he will start wearing a regular hat. The prices went down. The Lubavitcher Rebbe encourage people to live in Crown Heights.
