Incredibly fucking depressing
We’d probably want to buy a house with a value roughly equivalent to £250,000 in December last year, which is probably the cheapest you’re gonna get for somewhere a) in Glasgow, b) with enough bedrooms that you can start a family in it and c) has a room that can be made a study, since we’ll both almost certainly be working from home a couple days a week each and d) isn’t a shithole. As we would hopefully buy a house in an area we’d actually want to live, the price will have probably risen by something like 12% rather than the measly 10.9% in the article (at a very conservative estimate).
That’s an extra £30,000 on the price of a £250k home. Since last fucking year. The increase in the deposit alone will be £3,000, which is roughly the amount we’ll have saved in that time, if not more.
This fucking, FUCKING country. I fucking despise it.
