We live in a 3 bed semi detached house in the rural Highlands. We rent from our local housing association at a price of 400 per month.


We've never been interested in buying a house for some reason.

Two bed tiny terraced house in Surrey. Others recently sold by us for around 375,000. Both bedrooms have en-suites and we have a downstairs cloakroom. Theres only the two of us here.

We did look to move to bigger and increase our mortgage a few years ago, but most people looking at ours were downsizing so we decided to stay put and enjoy life.

Im 53 and mortgage free now.

We have lovely holidays, are luckily enough to just buy anything if we want it and both have nice cars.

A lot of people we know have interest only mortgages and are banking on their property prices increasing enough to enable them to move to smaller and hopefully be mortgage free in the end. Its the only way they can have houses big enough for their families now without paying silly money in rent.

We are in our first home that we bought in our early 20s. Nearly five years later and we are still very happy here. We are in East Anglia, in a not so cheap area - I wanted to stay here as I was born in this town and have all our family near. We live in a mid-terraced but it is nice and spacious for us with 3 double bedrooms. I am obsessed with money-saving (with the exception of spending on Disney holidays), and our aim is to carry on overpaying our mortgage as much as we can.. I don't like having the debt! Love the idea of being a homeowner and having no mortgage

We bought ours 18 or 19 years ago. Were in Hants and looking to move somewhere a little cheaper so I could maybe quit the day job.
Our friends have just bought the most incredible house about 25 mins away from us that I could only dream of where we are!

Us too. We bought our semi detached cottage back in 1989 for about 12,500! Got a full grant and did a total refurb.
