Help to Sell

Investors Chronicle: Housebuilding's boom and bust

The article discusses future prospects for building companies equity returns with an emphasis on the effects of the Help to Buy scheme. It's clear that Investors Chronicle consider that Help to Buy benefited builders and banks. In 2021, Help to buy will be restricted to first-time buyers only and for homes with a market value restricted to regional price caps. In 2023, the scheme is currently set to terminate. If you accept Investors Chronicle's conclusion that returns on housebuilder equities may be depressed by the withdrawal of help to Buy, it's hard to avoid the conclusion that the scheme was a benefit to banks at builders using public money.
