100% Mortgages are back and here to stay?

There were several headlines last week announcing Aldermore bank’s new 100% mortgage launched last week aimed at first time buyers. Aldermore are one of the newer banks – only opening in 2009, and we have found them pretty refreshing to deal with.  They are however taking no big chances on this product, with a 3 year fixed rate of 6.48%. The Family Guarantee Mortgage however allows homebuyers to buy a property without a cash deposit, as long as a parent or relative guarantees any borrowing above 75 per cent loan-to-value, with a charge on their own property. Borrowers must be at least 25 years old, and seeking a mortgage of no more than £250,000. From no 100% mortgages, or even 95% mortgages, available for the first 2 years after the credit crunch started, lenders are beginning to understand the market and get more confident again in offering new products. There are...

So will July be your month?

Well thats the first half of 2011 completed! How have you done overall? Have you hit your goals? Were you 100% clear on your goals?? If you were not, and had not written down your goals it’s unlikely you will have achieved what you hoped to. Anyone that is successful in life will have clear goals and a clear idea of what they want to achieve. Whether it is success in sport or business, those that do best will have clear plans, will take decisive action, have self belief and work hard. Look at Rory McIlroy winning the US Open a few weeks ago, smashing records all through the tournament as the youngest winner ever. In the last round he admitted not only did he expect to win he also had his eye on the winning margin of Tiger Woods 15 strokes a few years earlier – now that is great...

Is now the time to buy off plan?

Alan Forsyth from Property Secrets has provided this informative article about Off Plan Investing. Buying off plan was very much the way to invest several years ago, and worked very well in a rising market. For instance I bought off plan in Leeds city centre 11 years ago, as new build apartments were just starting to be built - and sold on 6 months after completion making a good profit. This type of investing worked well for investors in Dubai, and many emerging European markets over the last 7-8 years up until 2008 - with investors seeing excellent return on investment before they even completed. This investing then suffered as the credit crunch kicked in.  Investors hoping to secure 85-95% mortgages then saw loan to values reduce to 65-75% meaning extra funds were required on completion, and this affected some end values. So done well it can work very well,...

How will future house prices go?

How will future house prices go? By Alan Forsyth, Property Secrets We keep hearing about a double dip, and concerns over house values. I actually look at how resilient house prices in the UK are. Unemployment has increased by 50% over the last 3 years, credit has been slashed, and yet house prices are only down around 10% from their peak! Why are house prices so resilient? Supply and Demand Shortage of New Properties being Built The government outlined in 2006 how many houses they feel are required by 2031 - and currently nothing is yet being done to address the structural undersupply of new housing - we require 6 million additional homes by 2031 on current projections - and this will continue to support the case of longer-term price increases. So demand is huge yet supply is not nearly enough. The number of properties being built in the UK...
