Barratt Home Buyers Comres Survey January 2011

Recommended Posts

HPC Denizens may find this of interest - nothing amazingly earth shattering but still, maybe the message is slowly starting to get through.

Full Report - http://www.comres.co...px?pg=717&ver=1

Some 44 per cent of respondents aged between 18 and 29 describe the housing wealth which the generation over 40 has accumulated because of rising house prices as 'unfair'. By contrast, only 10 per cent of respondents aged between 40 and 65 agreed.
"Signs of friction between the generations are now starting to emerge as a direct consequence of relative housing wealth. Significant numbers of people - especially those under the age of 30 – appear to be delaying key life decisions such as starting a family because they cannot take that all-important first step on the housing ladder."

The usual 'solutions' are trotted out

"Without doubt, making mortgage finance more readily available to creditworthy first-time buyers should be top of the list.

then again, still a long way to go

More homebuyers (32 per cent) identify Central Government cuts to the housing budget as the single most important reason for the shortage of homes in Britain than any other factor. 17 per cent blamed buy-to-let landlords and eight per cent blamed housebuilders for not developing enough land.

So what did the other 43% of respondents blame for lack of housing? Leadin question anyway. Wonder what the age breakdown for the answers to that question was!

p47 of the full report, breaks it down by age but summary below

Government for cutting housing 32%

Local Councils for not granting enough planning 13%

House builders for not developing enough land 8%

Buy to let landlords 17%

Local residents for having a NIMBY (not in my back yard) view of housing 6%

Other, please specify 24%

Although it doesnt specify any others.

edit for horrible formating
