Please grit your teeth and listen to this right winger who chooses to be totally ignorant of reality.

Then, if one comes across another empathy free droid, here are 15 points to ram down their gullets:

  1. Rising House Prices: One of the most significant factors is the rapid increase in house prices, particularly in urban areas. This has made it increasingly difficult for young people to save for a down payment and afford monthly mortgage payments.
  2. Stagnant Wages: While house prices have been rising, wages have not kept pace with this increase. Young people often face stagnant or slow wage growth, making it harder to save for a home.
  3. High Cost of Living: The cost of living, including rent, utilities, and other daily expenses, has risen substantially, leaving less money for saving for a home.
  4. Student Loan Debt: Many young people in the UK graduate from university with significant student loan debt. Servicing these loans can make it challenging to save for a home.
  5. Deposit Requirements: The requirement for a substantial deposit (often 5-20% of the property’s value) makes it difficult for young people to get on the property ladder, especially in expensive areas.
  6. Limited Access to Mortgage Finance: Stricter lending criteria and affordability tests can make it harder for young people to secure a mortgage, even if they have saved for a deposit.
  7. Shortage of Affordable Housing: There is a shortage of affordable housing in many parts of the UK, leading to increased competition and higher prices for the available properties.
  8. Economic Uncertainty: Economic uncertainty, such as the impact of Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic, can deter young people from making significant financial commitments like buying a home.
  9. Inheritance Gap: Some young people may not have access to financial support from their parents or inheritances, which can help with a home purchase.
  10. Renting as the Norm: The high cost of homeownership has made renting a more attractive option for many young people, further perpetuating the cycle of renting rather than buying.
  11. Low Interest Rates: While low-interest rates can make mortgages more affordable, they can also drive up house prices, making it challenging for young people to enter the market.
  12. Regional Disparities: The cost of housing varies greatly across different regions of the UK. Young people in areas with high house prices, such as London and the South East, face greater affordability challenges.
  13. Economic Factors: Economic factors, such as job insecurity and underemployment, can make it difficult for young people to commit to homeownership.
  14. Lack of Affordable Housing Policies: Some argue that government policies and incentives for affordable housing are not sufficient to address the issue of housing affordability for young people.
  15. Cultural Shifts: There has been a cultural shift towards valuing experiences over property ownership among some young people, leading them to prioritise renting and flexibility.

If they choke, it’s a win.
