Sarah Mann, 32, has a good job but was forced to move back into her parent's house in Croydon, south London, after splitting up with a partner.
She says her salary is not that of a six-figure banker's but is "better than the average wage," yet still she cannot afford to buy a property.
Speaking to ITV News, she said: "You just think, why do I work so hard, who do I do all those extra hours, if it means all I can do is find somewhere to put a roof over my head. What kind of quality of life is that?"
