Owning your own home is seen by many as a milestone but nowadays, getting on the property ladder is harder than ever and for some, just a dream. According to a YouGov poll that asked people if, assuming they could afford it, whether they would buy a house or rent it, 84% of Brits would rather own their own home. Just 9% said they would rent, whilst the rest didn’t know.

The older you are, the most likely you are to priorities owning a home, the poll suggested, with 91% of over-65s saying they want to own rather than rent, compared to 64% of 18 to 24-year-olds. Conservative voters are more likely than average to want their own home (92%), while women are more likely than men to want to buy rather than rent (87% vs 81%).
