Ten years of Property Tracker

The BSA has been commissioning the quarterly Property Tracker survey for ten years this month. Property Tracker analyses consumer sentiment towards the housing market.

The latest figures reveal that:

  • 7/10 say the difficulties young people have getting onto the housing ladder is one of the biggest problems the UK faces
  • Almost half (48%) of people aged 25-34  who aren’t on the property ladder say they want to own their own home within the next 10 years. 
  • ...However, 41% of these people think that the achievement of their dream is unlikely.

But how does this all compare to a decade ago, when we established the Property Tracker?
