Hope to buy?

Assessing trends in home ownership

Purchasing a house has traditionally been seen as one of the key milestones in adulthood, providing not just a home but financial security for many. But with youth home ownership having declined substantially over the past three decades, this milestone is increasingly one many may not reach.

How have trends in youth home ownership changed over recent years? To what extent do factors such as location, occupation, ethnicity and income affect young people’s chances of buying a house? What are the main barriers to home ownership for young people? And what can policymakers do to enable young people to overcome these challenges and get onto the housing ladder?

The Resolution Foundation is hosting an in-person and interactive webinar to debate and answer these questions. Following a presentation of the key highlights from new Resolution Foundation research, supported by Lloyds Banking Group, on changing trends in youth home ownership, we will hear from leading experts on how to help young people onto the housing ladder.
