There’s no shortage of opinions on what millennials are doing wrong.

Recently, an Australian millionaire claimed to know precisely why young adults can’t afford to move out of mom and dad’s basement. “When I was trying to buy my first home, I wasn’t buying smashed avocado for $19 and four coffees at $4 each,” real estate mogul Tim Gurner told the Australian news show 60 Minutes.

In truth millennials are buying plenty of homes. In fact, they are the single largest group of home buyers in this country.

What’s more, the notion that the only thing stopping millennials from affording real estate is that extra order of avocado toast, or that pricey goat yoga and wine tasting session is as comical as those male rompers that millennials also seem to be wasting their money on.

To show you why, MONEY took the median home price from each of the 100 metro areas that Trulia tracks, and calculated how many avocados, goat yoga excursions, and male rompers it would take to cover a down-payment of 20%.

Holy guacamole — you’d have to shut down Chipotles to buy the home of your dreams.
