    Is there anyone here managed to buy property in the last couple of years without help from family?
    Just asking cause me and the misses have a really decent combined salary and could easily afford a mortgage but skint parents so if we want to buy we have to save up ourselves.

    Average prices for 2 bed flats in the city we live (not London) is about £220,000 or so.
    Take a 80% LTV mortgage, how do you save £40k on you're own on top of monthly outgoings?! It's mental.

    Fucking market needs to crash to bring the prices down.
