What can one year’s rent buy?

London rents are now an average of £24,000 per year according to Rightmove. With the average London wage being only £39,476, that means your landlord earns more by owning the roof over your head, than you do showing up to work everyday.


For that money, you could:


Buy a brand new 5-door Mini Cooper:

In reality, your money probably went towards buying yet another property for your landlord.
