But obviously, house prices vary from region to region. To find out how long it would take you to save up for the average home in your area (which is admittedly a bit more expensive than the average first-time buyer's home), enter your postcode below and use the slider to specify how much you'd be willing to save each month. We've taken the house price data from Zoopla.
