its hardly 'imaginary' - the inflation rate is a calculated figure based on measurable cost increases over the years on goods, services, transportation costs etc. That inflation statistics (generally) ignore real estate prices is arguably a large flaw among many, some countries include rent, some don't. Arguably, the real estate 'value' - the $650k here - is the more imaginary number, as bears least relation to wages and the cost of near everything else. tldr, housing costs were either too cheap originally, or have now untethered themselves from reality.

Don't underestimate the impact of interest rates. If your interest rate was fixed at 10% on a $200K house for a standard 30 year term you'd end up paying ~$630K compared to a 2% interest rate fixed on the same house for the same 30 year term which would result in you paying ~$266K.

No return on investment is guaranteed to happen. A house is literally guaranteed (by insurance) to be a place you live in.
Also your payments going to rent don't buy you anything except time living in someone else's building.
So it's not the case that you're using what would have been mortgage money for a stock market investment. Mortgage payments are at or below rent payments, meaning you're paying for time in someone else's building with nothing in return vs. paying the same amount for the same time and getting ownership on top of that.

The 650k is based on house prices, the 250k is based on general inflation (i.e. the value of various things). Some things have increased in price a lot over the last 60 years, some not so much.
