Having trouble breaking into the New York real estate market? No worries. According to today’s Wall Street Journal, you can get into a new building boom that’s beginning to build momentum:
There’s a building boom going on in gingerbread houses.
Making them was once the domain of professional bakers and only the most ambitious home chefs, but in recent years, everyone from mom-and-pop kitchens to stores like Williams-Sonoma has started offering gingerbread-house kits, many of them pre-baked and even preassembled. And gingerbread isn’t just for Christmas anymore. There are now kits for Halloween houses, Easter cottages and even gingerbread doghouses complete with Fido and his fire hydrant.
Don’t really think that Donald Trump or David Walentas have much to worry about. But, let’s just hope that the present administration doesn’t see this pre-fab trend as a potential quick-fix solution for the low-income housing crisis. Talk about crumby housing.
