Lockdown exodus from big cities further complicates housing crisis in attractive parts of the country.
Jonathan Taylor was pleased by his first peek at a sparkling new studio apartment that could one day become his home. The 24-year-old from Exeter has been living in YMCA accommodation since he was 19. But, as he viewed freshly painted white walls. The reality of a more settled home dawned.
“If I lived in this place I’d feel more important,” he said. “I’d feel I’ve landed on my feet.”
Taylor, who juggles cleaning jobs at a builders’ merchant and a pub, is a victim of what many fear is a deepening housing crisis in the Devon cathedral city fuelled by surging house prices. The spread of short-term Airbnb lets and rising social waiting lists.
It means the chance to rent a decent, affordable home like the one Taylor is viewing is vanishingly rare. The fact Taylor may soon be given a chance to move in is down to YMCA Exeter. Which is converting a former Poundstretcher warehouse into 26 homes for priced-out young people for a £140-a-week rent – well below the market rate.
The small attempt at a solution comes as Exeter and many other parts of the UK are facing a new challenge to further complicate the housing crisis. The arrival of metropolitan homebuyers seeking more space and less stress. Pandemic exiles are selling up high-value homes in places such as London and snapping up bigger properties for a fraction of the price.
