68% of youngsters want dream home by 35

Some 68 per cent of youngsters believe they will own their dream home by the age of 35, newly-released research has found.

According to Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks, 19 per cent of children want to have a dwelling by 25, which may interest builders in Edinburgh.

A total of 22 per cent of girls questioned would like a cottage, while 15 per cent are looking for a farm.

Boys on the other hand want football pitches (23 per cent) and bowling alleys (33 per cent).

Kids in Edinburgh have the most ambition in terms of becoming property owners, with 89 per cent of respondents wanting a house by 35, while this figure drops to only 52 per cent in Glasgow.

Steve Reid, retail director for Clydesdale Bank – which has over 7.7 million customers – said: “As any parent knows, children can be very ambitious and it’s always refreshing to hear about their hopes and dreams, however optimistic they may be.”
