Mr Gurner made headlines in May when he weighed in on the debate on housing affordability for young people.

‘When I was trying to buy my first home, I wasn’t buying smashed avocado for $19 and four coffees at $4 each,’ he said.

‘The expectations of younger people are very, very high. They want to eat out every day, they want travel to Europe every year.

‘This generation is watching the Kardashians and thinking that’s normal – thinking owning a Bentley is normal.’

His comments caused outrage among Generation Y, with many claiming Mr Gurner got lucky because his grandfather lent him $34,000 for his first investment.

The multi-millionaire responded, claiming it is ‘incorrect’ he had help getting on the property market.
