A second series of Crowded House is in the offing and producers are looking for applicants.

The first series, fronted by Brendan Courtney, was a big hit with viewers last year, coming at a time when rent prices were soaring, landlords could pick and choose tenants from lengthy queues of desperate home-hunters, and the notion of buying your own property remained just that - a notion.

Nothing has changed.  In fact, it's worse than ever.

One in four 25-34 year olds are living with their parents in the family home in Ireland right now.  For some it's a choice and a happy arrangement.  For others it's not such a joyous situation, and their parents would like to see their adult children with a little more independence.

Crowded House offers people in their 20s, 30s or even 40s the opportunity to avail of financial planning and expert advice on the options available to them.

There are always options, it's just not always easy to see them but Brendan and the team are well equipped to shine a light on what's possible (and what's not possible).

Financial planner Eoin McGee will return to give participants the lowdown on their finances while a team of researchers and advisors will present the best housing options available on their budget.

To apply for the new series simply email crowdedhouse@indiepics.ie or call 01-7088181.
