Students responsible for housing slump

The Dominion Post has reported that a survey has revealed that 'suburban New Zealanders rate students as second only to squatters in a roll-call of undesirable neighbours, such as party people sharing houses and families with teenage kids', and apparently 'having ... students as neighbours could devalue a home by up to 10 per cent'.  So there we go - the solution to softening house prices: just ban students.
