Re: Yearning for the past.
Spit on Mac and Peter most younger generation seem to think they have an entitlement to everything without having to work for whatever it is they want. When I wanted to buy my first property I took in extra jobs to get the deposit together, I had my Monday to Friday job, then I worked a few nights a week at whatever I could find, then Saturday I worked in an estate agents.
I remember looking for my first flat it was in Chiswick, the prices were about £8,000 for a 2 bed roomed flat, it was about 6 months by the time I had found what I wanted and the prices had doubled, luckily I had saved enough for the deposit that was back in the late ‘70’s.
In those days and we’ll I to the ‘80’s interest rates kept rising, I think the last rise my husband and I had was when it hit 15%, also getting the first mortgage you had to wait for a few months to get the mortgage offer, was it worthwhile- yes it was, would I do it again yes.
