UK / owner-occupiers and renters

when you look at the charts you really wonder who is left to buyto keep the bubble going....../wenn man sich den chart ansihet fragt man sich wer bei 70% noch nachbleibt um den boom am laufen zu halten........

more on the bubble in uk/mehr zur lage in uk
Of the 25 million homes in the UK, about seven out of 10 are owner-occupied. The number of home owners has risen by more than one million since 1997 alone.

In 1918, eight out of 10 homes were rented privately, compared with one in 10 now. The number of people in social housing has fallen to fewer than two in 10.

Home ownership is lowest in London (58%) and Scotland (67%). The majority of single parents rent their homes.

Most people live in houses, but large numbers of flats are being built. Homes have improved, but more than a quarter are not properly maintained or constructed
