I keep telling myself that prices are going to fall soon and I'll be able to buy but I can't wait any longer.

Having never ventured into the mortgage market I don't know where to begin.

I'm married. Earn £18 000. My wife earns £6000 and we have one child. My bank, at a recent sales pitch (I mean account review) suggested that we would only be able to borrow £65 000 max. The house prices around here mean we need £115 000. Surely we will never get that???? Are we doomed to live in someone elses house forever!!!!! Please help!!!!!
