Should governments put a maximum price on houses?

I was wondering what anyone thinks about this.

Yes. I believe this is an important thing that absolutely needs to be done. The houses in the U.S. and a lot of other countries are overpriced and need to have a price roof put over it because, otherwise, a lot of people aren't going to be able to afford to get houses. Most people in the U.S. and the world aren't even millionaries, so why do houses cost to the point to where only millionaires and above could afford it? The houses should only be 1/10 of what they're worth. It government should make it illegal for people to charge $100,000 or more for a house.

No because if you want a bigger house, its not fair to the workers that they get paid less for a larger amount of work.

Houses have become priced too highly to where only millionaires and above can afford them in the U.S. and most countries. If essential goods get priced to where only millionaires and above can afford them, then the government does need to step in and out a price roof because otherwise those people will suffer.

Some of the major factors in determining the price of houses includes location, standard of build quality, architectural features and landscaping.

If a price cap was placed on houses most builders would cut corners and use the cheapest materials.

For almost everyone buying a house will be the most important and expensive purchase of their lives and as such we should all have a wide range of choices.

The 'first-time' buyer will invariably go for a starter-home and graduate to more expensive properties as their career progresses with the corresponding increase in income.
