I don't understand this country. If house prices rise by 250 every week next year, then that completely wipes out my salary even if I save every penny. This doesn't make sense how long can this stupid boom go on for. Where is all this money coming from? The average age of a first time buyer is 37 in Scotland! This is just getting stupid and really depressing.

Not depressing if you own a home but I can see it from your view point. As stated before renting is cheaper than a mortgage at the moment by a lot unless you have a large deposit. This saving is not likely to be as much as the house price rises due for next year but it will still negate them somewhat. Then a small correction everywhere except london (you are pretty much screwed if you live here. Even if prices drop they are still sky high) and away you go.
