First Time Buyers Now Up To 37%?

Recommended Posts

They don't seem to consider that this could equally well be due to a fall in other kinds of buyers. Spin it, spin it hard.

'Searching' for a property is not the same as getting a mortgage and completing.

Searching for one they can afford, no doubt.

I'm searching for a l5 bed loft apartment in City Centre Manchester, with free parking, champagne on tap and a Brad Pitt lookalike to do my bidding, thrown in, for 50k. As I am unlikely to find one, I won't become a buyer.......

Personally I have no intention of buying..

I am one of their figures..

I am also one of those mortgage approvals..

I didn't even ask for a mortgage, my bank approved me anyway.

Won't say which..

but I did phone them up and instruct them that their figures should not be used as official statistics..

I think they listened. ;)

less then 7% according to the estate agents group..

Less then 7% of those buying are first time buyers..

and they wanted to lend me up to 5 times my salary..

As I was such a good customer..

I did ask how I was going to pay that each month if interest rates..

Actually I don't think they were listening to me any more then I was to them.

I don't think the stats in the original post are very reliable, but the BoE mortgage approvals are only counted after a property survey has been completed (costing several hundered ponds), so just filling in a form on the web, or being "pre-approved" won't get you into the figures.

The report says 37% of those searching for a property classified themselves as first time buyers compared with just 25% in September.

Allow me to respin this for you ;-)

40% drop in BTL buyers compared to September.
