A NEW POLL for the Sunday Independent and Today FM shows that 37% of adults aged 20-49 are currently renting their home.

The survey also found that just over 10% of people plan to buy a home in the next year. This rises to 17% in the 30-39 age group.

Renting has become so commonplace that even the head of the Housing Agency said that he rents and would not consider buying a home again.

But what about you?

Today’s poll: Do you plan to buy your own home?


Poll Results:

Yes, but it's not a necessity. (1236)
I don't know. (490)
