I came across a granny blog that was talking about how older couples were being pushed out of their homes to make way for young families. Read the post if you are interested because the part that caught my eye was the average age of a first time buyer.
I'm 23 and my boyfriend is 26. We've just bought our first home.
I can't think what would push the average up to 38-44. Is it that young people are so in debt that they can't afford to save, does no one see the merits of buying a house until that late in life, do people have better things to save for?
