%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%Only one in every five homes for sale in England is affordable to a typical working family trying to get on the property ladder, a report by Shelter has found.

The housing charity, which analysed more than 325,000 properties with at least two bedrooms for sale across England, found that just 17.9% of them were within the financial reach of a household with children on an average local wage, leaving the remaining 82.1% beyond their means.
