Anyway your sympathatic hyperbole proves my point, thats exactly what FOMO is.. If you missed out on something doesnt mean you buy anything at any price and more importantly at any amount of leverage thinking all investment comes with the risk.. Ask yourself 5 times, why is it necessary to buy if it is too risky? Take out capital appreciation gamble (Yes thats what all these FOMO buyers with recency bias have in mind ) out of equation and count savings in 5-10yrs by buying compared to rent and factor in job security, unforseen emergency etc and see if its worth buying at high leverage!!! Not rocket science and as they say sentiment has no value if someone wants to hit axe on own leg..
