Getting Into The Property Market

In days gone by there were only a few expectations about property.  You were going to either rent or buy.  If you did well at school, you went on to university, got the degree and then a decent job – one for life.   The first steps were to move from home into a rented flat, then a step up to a bigger rented flat or maybe you saved that extra expenditure and saved for a deposit.  Eventually enough was available for you to buy the first place.  That would generally be expected to be a little flat.  Then the 2 bedroomed terrace house.  Later a 3 bedroomed semi detached and so on.  Getting on the mortgae ladder ws hard, but not as scary as it has been of late.  You were on your way!
