A drop in the property market – it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom…


With property still being regarded as one of, if not the best, investments one could make – the constant news of stagnation in the market, or worse still a drop in property prices is a cause for concern, as it is viewed as a reflection on the economy as a whole.
In all of this, there is some good news however, as people who have been waiting to get on the property ladder, may now be able to find a property they can afford – even though they would likely have to face tougher mortgage rules, a possible higher deposit request, and the fact that the Bank of England just raised the base rate to 0.75% (the highest since 2009). As dreadful as that may sound, provided you have the deposit, all it will really mean is a bit more shopping around for the perfect lender; but with a greater variety of houses to choose from, I’m sure this will be a welcome challenge.
On a lighter note, (arguably!), billionaire property tycoons are snapping up prime property in London for a bargain (£30,000,000 before SDLT as an example), as prices have been falling for those too.
So whether you have a few millions stashed away somewhere, or are finally able to get a foot on the ladder, the team at Aston Brooke are ready and willing to help with the legalities.
