Someone said :
IS anyone else afraid that they will forever be trapped in the rental market? Thats fine with a fulltime wage.. what happens once 65 hits? homeless out on the streets?
When it came to saving for a first house, myself and every other person I know just gave up all non essentials and committed to it full time.
No over priced coffee, no trips to the pub and wasting 60 quid. No nice new clothes.
I cooked clever meals that you could get two or even three days out of.
Sounds bleak, but I was renting, on retail salary (topped up with DJ nixers) and bought comfortably in the end.
I now have two properties and no regrets.
