Yesterday I received an email from my union about the high cost of housing and how it impacts members. I thought this might go down well here. Or maybe not. https://housingripoff.org/ A very good point but Unison doesn't appear to have considered all the money from questionnable sources that is pumped into housing, as well as the Government props. There's a calculator that tells you how long it will take for you to save up for a deposit on the average home. It does generalise a bit eg: saving10% of take home pay from scratch. In my case it will take me 19.5 years for me to save up for a deposit for an average home in my city: "I'll get the keys in December 2038". I'll be into my 60s by then, so a mortgage to pay off the rest will be unlikely.
