Who is lending you $100k-$200k to buy real estate as an 18 year old? Nobody unless you're rich already.

Many middle-class parents spend $100k putting their child through college (tuition + rent).

Instead, they could use that money for a down payment on a rental. Their kid then learns to code (or whatever) for free while having a place to live and cash flow from an asset.
