Average Earner Buyers Are Priced Out Of 95% Of All Regions

Recommended Posts

Potential homebuyers earning the average wage for their area are facing an epic struggle to get onto the property ladder solo. A median-priced property is now no longer affordable for median-earning solo buyers in 95 per cent of local authorities across England and Wales, Savills says.
