“I suggest to my trainees that the easy thing to do is save at least half of the increase in salary you get from qualifying. That way you don’t notice the money going to tomorrow and away from today. If you keep doing that, it’s not too long until that saving adds up into a meaningful wedge that can go down as a deposit. Home ownership makes your life a lot easier, and if you can afford it, it’s still worth doing.” [Legal Cheek comments]
