Last month WBG launched a report #HomeOfHerOwn exploring the impact the housing crisis has had on women's access to the housing market. Below are some of the new data in the report:
- Nowhere in England is housing affordable for women. There is no region in England where the average home to rent is affordable for a woman on median earnings.
- Women need over 12 times their annual salaries to be able to buy a home in England, while men need just over eight times.
- Across England as a whole average rents take 43% of women’s median earnings and 28% of men’s.
If you would like to to look at housing data in your local area then please get in touch to discuss further.
