The lender trade body said 81% of British potential adults buyers hope to be home-owners in ten years’ time and 74% aspire to it within two years.
Aspirations are much higher than current home-ownership levels among those aged under 35 but it is far from clear whether and how people will achieve their home-ownership goal.
Notably, most of those who are renting privately or sharing with family or friends are under 35 and more than half of these (54%) would like to become home-owners over the short term.
Only a third (33%) of those who hope to be home-owners in two years time actually expect it to happen.
CML chief economist Bob Pannell said based on a survey undertaken by YouGov the desire for home-ownership has fallen back a little in recent years but still remains strongly entrenched across all age groups.
