Housing Market Holding Good

26/07/2017

The unexpected fall in inflation is enabling interest rates, and therefore the property market, to hold their cool.

Balfours’ Head of Sales, Alistair Hilton, says that the housing market thrives on stability and therefore the latest news relating to inflation is welcome. “We have seen considerable political upheaval in the past two years; Brexit and the snap election both contributing to uncertainty. Despite this, the property market has and continues to more than hold its own, particularly in Shropshire and the Welsh Marches.”

He puts the solid platform on which the property market continues to operate down to two factors, namely low interest rates and limited new instructions. “We have buyers who need and want to move for numerous reasons, however stock coming onto the market is limited, and that in itself is consolidating and even strengthening property values, reflecting supply and demand.”

The lack of supply is endorsed by the Rural Institute of Chartered Surveyors who say it has recorded its fifteenth successive negative reading of new instructions on “non-new builds” to agents. “This does create a real challenge to the efficiency of the housing market,” Alistair adds. 

He attributes a reluctance of vendors to put their toe in the market to inflation currently outstripping the rise, or lack of it, in earnings. Despite the national picture suggesting that some buyers and sellers are adopting a “wait and see” approach, he says Balfours’prime location officesin Shrewsbury Square are attracting a healthy number of enquiries from people keen to take advantage of attractive mortgage offers.

He continues: “Since 2014, we have seen a gradual and sustainable rise in property prices of some 3-5% year-on-year and this, without doubt, is underpinned by the two key factors of interest rates enabling low mortgage rates and market supply. I see no reason why this positive trend in values will not continue for the next few months at least.

“At Balfours,there has been a good turnover of sales in the past few months. Buyer and seller confidence remains positive in the local market. Quality and presentation are often rewarded and certainly we have had a good number of properties receiving offers within weeks of being launched with some completions even turned around in a calendar month.”
