The North seeing a mini property boom!

The latest Nationwide House Price Index shows an annual increase of 2.1% in house prices, with a monthly decline of -0.2%. Annual house price growth remained subdued in March • UK annual house price growth steady at 2.1% • London again weakest performing region, with house prices down 1% year-on-year Commenting on the figures, Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said: “UK house price growth remained broadly stable in March at 2.1%, little changed from the 2.2% recorded the previous month. House prices fell by 0.2% over the month, after taking account of seasonal factors. “On the surface, the relatively subdued pace of house price growth appears at odds with recent healthy rates of employment growth, a modest pick-up in wage growth and historically low borrowing costs. However, consumer confidence has remained subdued, due to the ongoing squeeze on household finances as wage growth continues to lag behind increases in the...

Halifax HPI shows lowest rate of annual growth since 2013

The latest Halifax House Price Index shows that prices are up 0.4% monthly, although they have dropped -0.7% over the quarter. While they are also up 1.8% annually, this is the lowest rate of annual growth since March 2013. Russell Galley, Managing Director, Halifax, said: “House prices continue to remain broadly flat, as they have since the end of last year. The annual rate of growth has slowed from 2.2% in January to 1.8% in February, the lowest rate of growth since March 2013. “The labour market continues to perform strongly with the number of people in employment rising by 88,000 in the three months to December. Notably, this is almost entirely accounted for by full-time jobs. The strength of the jobs market may finally be benefitting wage growth, with the annual growth rate accelerating from 2.3% in November to 2.8% in December. However, earnings are rising at a slower...

Property Expert, Paul Shamplina, helps mop up the mess of generation rent

    On 18th July, founder of tenant eviction specialists Landlord Action and leading property expert, Paul Shamplina, will be featuring in a one hour documentary, ‘Meet the Landlords’ on BBC 1, looking at the possibilities and pitfalls of being a ‘generation rent’ landlord.    Landlord Action, an organisation which has acted on more than 20,000 problem tenant cases, says the buy-to-let boom, which has lead to over 8.5 million people in the UK now living in a rented property, is the result of a cocktail of factors. These include; a lack of house building, less affordable housing, restricted funding in the mortgage market forcing more people to rent, tougher austerity measures leading to cuts on housing benefits, stagnant wages, increased cost of living and rising unemployment.   The documentary will meet the new army of private landlords who are riding the rental boom, both making and losing money as they...

Rightmove Speak on Buy to Let and More…

A great interview by PS Investor Services. Now a household name, the Rightmove property portal has now become the first point of call for the large majority of the nation’s house buyers and sellers.  Launched in 2000, the company is now listed on the London Stock Exchange and recently attracted attention as being one of the only sites on the planet that Google pulled out of competing with due to its well established presence. We were therefore very grateful to be able to ask some questions to Miles Shipside – the company’s commercial director – who has had an integral role in bringing the company to where it is today.  We focus on how the company has grown over the last 10 years; maintaining its strong position; 2011 plans; searching for investment property; quality control; what makes a successful property advertisement; the overseas property market; the Rightmove property index; the role...
