Some good news..

Eurozone crisis to constrain UK mortgage lending for a year

The crisis in the eurozone is already affecting UK mortgage lenders’ funding costs and is likely to restrain mortgage lending for the next year, according to Capital Economics. In a UK housing market update published today, Capital Economics says that while mortgage lending has strengthened in recent months, European financial woes mean a full recovery in lending should not be expected any time soon.

  • So in plain English, house prices set to fall for at least the next six months.

    I have just checked Rightmove for the areas I watch using Property Bee, and every single house which was listed as ‘sold’ or ‘under offer’ is now ‘available’, some 25-30 houses in three different areas. This can only be that the banks have all simultaneously pulled their mortgage offers! What is going on? Anyone got any clues?

  • I feel 0.5% per month at least should be achievable in the current climate.

    Makes that -6%+ by March, ready for the spring flop of +3%

  • -6%, or for the typical £160,000 house a saving of nearly £10,000.

  • £10,000 is more than my £5100 cost of renting between now and then.

    Lets not forget the 25/30 years of interest on that £10,000.

    its probably two things. houses that are reasonably priced sold, but then the vendors couldnt find another reasonably priced property to move to. or, as is more likely, the bank valued the property alot lower than the offer price.
