Tormy - yes you are right - we already know this but am glad that it is getting seom press attention.

From my own experience - ALL but one of my friends my age either rents or is STILL living with their parents. We graduated in 1998/99/00!!

God knows what the graduates of 2009 will be doing about their finances?

nearly30 - it's nice to get some input from the youth here. :-)

My parents, who are war babies (rather than boomers) were 39 before they bought their first house. Granted, they are a different generation - jobs for life, a proper pension and state-owned utilities who seemed far more willing to provide staff housing. Despite this rosy utopia of yesteryear where everyone saved and debt was evil they still had to borrow the deposit from my grandparents. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Perhaps that's where we are all headed again.
