It's helpful to her industry, so she likes it. That's a normal human bias I think. Narrow, but normal.

Personally I think this country subsidizes housing WAY too much. Renting is a perfectly fine option, and one many people would be better off considering rather than contorting themselves to try and force buying a home. This couple sounds like one who should have sold their house, rented a while and bought another one when and if they could afford it.
