The second half of the past century was a golden age of homeownership across many economies. Past decades of growth further entrenched an optimistic ideology of mass ownership as a widespread means of wealth accumulation. However, contemporary housing careers are increasingly affected by growing diversification, complexity and inequality. Rising labour market insecurity, housing financialisation and reduced state support have not only exacerbated divides but also increased the importance of individuals’ position on the housing market. Rowan Arundel studied these realignments in housing careers and how they fundamentally undermine promises of mass homeownership and the democratic nature of housing wealth.
