New figures show the gap between house prices here and what people are earning is continuing to get bigger.
The National Housing Federation says across the South West the average cost of a house is now nearly 11 times more than the average wage.
In some areas it is even higher, in the Cotswolds houses are 18 times more expensive than the average wage, while in Bath & North East Somerset the figures is 13 times higher and in Wiltshire it's 11.2.
The Federation says this is causing loads of problems for families, especially as the Government has said it will cut the building of affordable homes to save money.
