New Report Provides Disappointing News For First Time Buyers in Wicklow

A new report claims that first time buyers on average incomes in Wicklow and surrounding counties, are facing years of saving before they could qualify for a loan to purchase a home.

According to a report by EY DKM Economic Advisory, it would take people in Leitrim just over a year to save a deposit for a house in their county, but it would take first time buyers in Wicklow, Kildare and Meath 15 years to save the 10 percent deposit for a home in their counties.
