@bob Many millenials have not benefitted from the crash, as mortgages are only any use if you can save up for a deposit. If you can’t, you just get screwed from not earning interest on any savings you can save, rising rent prices and wages dropping in real terms!

I have been incredibly lucky in that I have always been able to find rental properties from friends, acquaintences and family. I have recently inhereted a large sum of money which will allow us to think about buying, but I am by no means in the majority in any of this!
