Homebuying top concern for young people
Young people are more concerned about buying and selling homes than any other issue, Which? research has found.
Half (49%) of 18 to 34 year- olds are concerned about buying, more than social care for older people (46%) and energy prices (34%).
Alex Neill, Which? managing director of home products and services, said: “Buying a home is one of the most significant purchases consumers ever make and one of the most stressful life experiences.
“It takes people far too long to buy property and home-buyers are losing out on substantial amounts of money due to flaws in the system.
“The next government must fix the outdated home-buying process.”
Three in 10 (28%) people of all ages see homebuying and selling as a top three priority for the next government, rising to four in 10 (42%) for those in London.
