Globe and Mail – “Realistic way to become financially comfortable: Buy a House”

A Globe and Mail financial advice article ‘Four fatal financial fantasies’ (Amy Fontinelle, 15 Nov 2011) warns against the following assumptions:
1. I’ll receive a large inheritance.
2. I’ll win the lottery.
3. I’ll start a website and make a killing off advertising.
4. I’ll make a ton off an initial public offering (IPO).
Okay, so far so good, we agree; don’t count on any of the above.
The article then, however, claims to make a ‘Reality Check’ and lists four “more realistic ways to become financially comfortable”. The fourth of these?
“I’ll buy a house”.
