Sales apprentice reveals how she saved enough money to buy her first home aged just TWENTY (after leaving school at 17, working five jobs, saving £500 a month and finding a £120,000 fixer-upper)
  • Jennie Crockart, from Gloucestershire, began saving aged just 16
  • First started by selling chocolate and cans of drink in her lunch break earning £40 a month
  • Then worked five part-time jobs while studying for her AS Levels and saved '£50 here and there'
  • She left school the following year to work as a sales apprentice
  • Managed to save £500 a month for three years for a deposit by 'not going out a lot' after finding a property she wanted to buy
  • At 21 she bought a house that needed work in a 'not expensive part of town'
  • Property is now thought to be worth £150,000 - a £30,000 profit

Get ready for all the 16-19 year olds to leave home and declare themselves homeless to get a free party house. The guys clueless.


If you think you can just declare yourself homeless, you sir are pretty clueless.

Shows what a young person can do if they put their mind to it. This great government we have encourages this.

If it was 15 years ago under a labour government, she would be encouraged to have a child to an unnamed father to get a house and benefits for a lavish lifestyle.

Thanks for the reminder.

Her top money-saving tip: always buy a year's supply of reduced face paints the week after Halloween and never have to fork out for make-up again!

I am wondering if the second sentence was supposed to end where it did.

How much renovation do you think she's had?

Good on her. If we didn't all feel that way, we wouldn't be on this site. I went shopping today and came back with exactly what I went for (my son decided the menu for the week and I just bought what I was told) I paid full price for everything. Nothing had a reduced to clear sticker on. I cannot tell you how much that rankled
Depending where you are, there's affordable housing, Wakefield as a random example,

Believe she is in Bristol. Could buy half of wakey for the price of a flat in bristol. I've been to Bristol and I've been to Wakefield. Can't imagine why Bristol is more expensive. Unless of course you are rhubarb obsessed.

33156104-kX6pm.jpgThey don't include this in the brochure.
I know it takes one to know one but I don't think you can use the term pschos anymore, possibly something like "severe challenging behavioural issues when allowed freedom"
You can boast of having some well known neighbour's though.
Blimey times have changed , I bought my first house when I was 20 , but that didn't make it into the national newspapers

If this Government's so great and encourages this it would be happening all the time and not be newsworthy?
She should start saving up for a minder now with violent crime up 20% in the last year.

"Great Government..."

Read the article a little differently.
I read it as she's had to scrape together any last bit of money she could and basically have no enjoyment in her prime youth years, working every spare moment she could.

Yeah... Im sure our "Great government" had to do exactly the same when they were her age

Bargain compared to some in the Epping Forest/West Essex area.

46 Sq M! Though always a good investment area and walking distance to tube station its still eye wateringly expensive, makes Wakefield 2 bed house prices a dream!
I saw this article a few days ago. Very well done to get a mortgage at 20. One thing I've noticed about Yate is the increase in homeowners building small houses on excess land (usually side garden) - but property is very much in demand in that town. I think there's another 2-3000 new builds planned for the next couple of years.
Story probably isn't even true, most likely plopped straight from a masons bottom (most are). She looks like an actress to me.

Not saying this isn't possible, it clearly is given the right circumstances..ie no life and a family to pay your cost of living while you save. Mainstream blue collar jobs wages are very carefully calculated to make sure the vast majority of the amount is taken up by the cost of living, this keeps the poverty trap going nicely for the freaks.

A reality for many is paying through the nose for a not fit to live in mouldy old council flat that's made its initial costs many many many times over... A crime!

It was a story in the Bristol post, not the first actually, more than likely its an accurate story about a hardworking girl who bothered to take responsibility for her life and housing rather than constantly moaning about how the govt is to blame. She seems like a good role model but perhaps you're right the masons are behind the whole story

Jennie was the winner of the Bristol and Bath Outstanding Financial and Business Apprentice Award 2016

It is in the Daily Mail, you are expecting too much.

She saved £12k, not exactly a newsworthy achievment.

Funny to watch the awful miserable people moan about someone working hard and managing to get themselves on the housing ladder without a handout - keep on going guys its fun to watch - the story was in a local Bristol newspaper if it shatters your liberal heart to read the Daily Mail.

That is very true. However in this case i think people are just wondering why saving £12k is some kind of feat to get you in the news.

For myself i think she has done very well and should be proud of herself. I just don't think it is worthy of a special mention.

Im all for people working hard to earn a living - but i draw the line where it means you have to sacrifice every social opportunity you have to live.

We're heading back to Victorian times it seems... Trouble is, we won't have Carillion to manage the Work Houses.
