House prices have been on the up locally for a while now and have accelerated on our way out of the pandemic.
So what's driving this?
Mainly its to do with supply and demand. There just isn't enough supply of properties to satisfy demand. This then pushes up prices. So for new mortgages, there can be issues with getting the correct mortgage figure and working out the deposit. Recent interest rate changes are def helping.
And there aren't enough new houses being built. Many builders are struggling to get a supply of trades to work on sites, and a lack of adequate finance leaves many building 'on the drip', which means it takes a lot longer for sites to complete.
The cost and supply of materials is also causing problems in costing building projects. Its important to get the correct mortgage provider if there's going to be a long period between the holding deposit and getting the keys. Mortgage offers (and the interest rate with it) can go out of date. Does that mean a new application?
