Teens (16-19 Year Olds) Worry More About The Property Ladder

Recommended Posts

Worry Generation Gaps

Teens (16-19 year olds) worry more about the property ladder than saving the planet, getting an education or even sex! 50% of them placed worry about house prices in their top ten worries.

This was joint first with the cost of living, and 41% plaecd body image in their top ten worry list - twice the national average. Singletons: One in five singletons worry if they will ever have children and one third worry about house prices. Parents: of under 16s worry most about their children's future (81% placed this in their top ten) and one in four worry about education. Older Brits are more likely to worry most about crime, terrorism and immigration.

Interesting to see people believe this info because it says the right thing without a thought as to its accuracy. But if the latest house price info shows prices increasing there is all sorts of questions about the validity of the data and even of people keeping the truth from us. Shouldn't this info be approached in the same way otherwise you end up looking like you only see what you want to see, and that discredits a lot of good stuff.

What was the source of this statistic? How many teens were surveyed? How representative is this???

I think they should be worried more about getting decent skills and qualification. Maths, physics, science, engineering (call me old fashioned) business, accountancy etc.

I'd avoid a lot of the modern, trendier and fashionable degree subjects.

At least then you are equiping yourself for the wider world and could work anywhere.

But to worry about getting on the property ladder. sheesh. What a narrow horizon to set oneself. Thats parents for you.

During the dot.com craze my 14 year old nephew was obsessed about shares, hi-tech of course and wanted them for xmas and birthday. Fortunatly non of us took him up on this. The idea of hi-tech/dot.com shares wouldnt enter the head of the current generations of under 20's and in 5 years time the property ladder will be somthing you use to fix your guttering.

I can’t blame the kids for worrying about house prices. When I was that age I was convinced that going to University and getting a 'well paid' job would naturally allow me to buy a nice home.

The kids aren’t idiots, they can see this is no longer true.

All of the above are indirectly related to number 14.

From the list above most of the teens I know would worry most about number 24.

Funny. When I was a teen and the market was at rock bottom (much unbenownst to me) I didn't give the damn thing any kind of thought at all. All I knew about the housing market was that my grandma's house in Droylsden took literally YEARS to shift. All I cared about was video games, girls and drinking. (how little things change :P)

I suppose all this housing market obsession shite is utterly unavoidable now even as a teenager with all the property programmes on the telly at all hours from morning 'til night. Too bad. Hopefully few of them will be old enough to be suckered into a mortgage before the whole jig is up.

Teens worrying about property prices? I'm shocked and sad.

Perhaps it's because I wasn't brought up in the UK, but when I was at that age I was lucky to have other things in my life to care about than to "get on the property ladder"...
