The Pandemic Hasn't Dampened Gen Z's Plans to Buy

09 July 2021

Those of us from Generation Z are no strangers to the question, “Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?”. Some just don’t know but, according to, 50% of Gen Z’s want to be homeowners by then!

With many of us placing plans on hold, it seems that the pandemic hasn’t been a barrier to their ambitions and, in fact, 64%*, said that it actually had zero impact on their plans. Generation Z are done with long-term renting and just want somewhere to call their own.

Many Generation Z’s are entering the professional stage of life; they’ve found financial stability and are now looking to settle down – but how easy is it for Gen Z’s to get onto the property ladder?

The housing market is red hot right now and that heat is only going up. There’s a huge demand for property and, with some 18- to 24-year-olds have even commenting that they would consider homes that need that some TLC, there are so many options available right now.

So, what can you do if you’re a Gen Z looking to take their first step onto the property ladder?
