    If you do can I ask how much you paid for it and what your mortgage payments are if you ever struggle to pay them also what you work as.

    Mortgage-free portfolio owner, Generation X. First home I co-purchased cost £235k in London, 20 years ago. We sold it, paid off the mortgage and climbed another few rungs. An equivalent 2 bed flat in that area would now go for £1.1m [revised downwards when checked]. Didn't have any spare cash at the time, not much furniture: we literally started with just a sofa, a mattress and a tv, but we got there in the end.

    I own my own home - paid £140k for it 4 years ago, and yes I struggled at first as I was managing all the bills on my own. As my career progressed it became much easier and now I can cover it no bother. I work as a customer insight manager for a food company.

    Mortgage repayments are around £530 a month?

    How can you pay only 500 a month but buy a half a million pound house?

    My deposit was, quite literally, nearly as big as a house.

    Only recently bought a house, it was just short of 150k. our mortgage payments are £670 and we shouldn't have any trouble covering them as our rent was £700 and we had higher council tax, we're going to be paying for home improvements as well as bills so we're having to be careful but we won't struggle i think.
