House price inflation gathers pace as market conditions tighten further

RICS have released their Residential Market Survey for August 2015. Prices rise at quickest pace in over 12 months New buyer enquiries continue to build at a solid rate Lack of new instructions still appear to be holding back sales growth The August 2015 RICS Residential Market Survey results point to a further acceleration in national house price inflation, again underpinned by the enduring mismatch between falling new instructions to sell and rising buyer demand. Rising Demand At the national level, new buyer enquiries increased for a fifth month in succession, with the robust pace of growth broadly consistent to that reported in the past four surveys. Most parts of the UK continue to see rising demand, led by significant improvements in the West Midlands, the North West and Wales. Alongside this, new vendor listings declined for the seventh consecutive month, albeit the pace of decline did ease moderately. Nevertheless, new instructions have yet to record any meaningful uptick...

6 year high as activity spreading across the country

The Residential Market Survey for RICS for March 2014 reports sales hitting a six-year high, following increased activity in the housing market spreading across the country. Key facts: Sales per surveyor increased to its highest level since February 2008 LTV ratios for first time buyers creep upwards Decline in new instructions for the 3rd month running - strengthening the upward shift in prices The March 2014 survey continues to show that the imbalance between the supply and demand in the housing market is the driving force behind the house price appreciation. This is helping to continue the trend that was seen to start in min-2013 of the upward trend of prices. The headline price balance has nearly reached +60 and marks the 11th consecutive month where house price increases have been registered at this level and is the longest period since the start of the financial crisis. Regional The strongest gains...

Confidence is Key!

At last there is a feeling of hopefulness returning to the UK economy generally and more specifically the UK property market, and the economy at large. After years in the doldrums property is once again a hot topic. Gone are the downbeat messages of negative equity and repossessions, instead the papers are filled with positive headlines. We are instead more likely to read about increasing house prices and growing availability of finance with many speculating that we are now heading into a more prosperous period. This looks set to become a growing trend and we will see an increasing number of these news stories in the media over the forthcoming months.

2013 The Year For Turning

   Article written by John Grant Angeletta.  BMV Investment Deals  Since the economic crash of 2006, most of Europe has been in financial turmoil with some of our continental cousins still bumping along the bottom of the barrel. Portugal, Spain, Italy, Ireland and Greece have enormous money mountains to climb with some governments rightly accused of poorly regulating property development that contributed significantly to their economic havoc. Our hearts go out to the people! You may have noticed the U.S. and Britain did not escape the economic tsunami but we have not been effected to the same extent as mainland Europe. Recent pundit reports are encouraging about an earlier economic recovery ahead of Europe. For instance, we recently reported that the U.S. is seeing strong recovery within the building supplies trade and that usually indicates home sales will be hot on its heels. In short, people dont buy bricks, tiles, boilers, kitchens and bathrooms unless they are building and/or fitting-out...

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...

Student Sector - An Introduction

Assetz is a long-term supporter of the student sector having been active in it since the early 2000s. I have invested in it personally and this year saw 10% gross rental growth across the board in all my properties - I focus on new build private halls of residence. There are many reasons for this strength but the primary one is yet again our old favourite of supply and demand. UCAS confirmed there had been a 10.2% rise in applicants for all UK courses from UK students and an even greater growth of 12.4% in applications from non-EU students. The Eurozone provided a whopping 22.8% increase in applications. There just isnt the student accommodation available for these numbers, which is what is driving the new build student sector to grow so strongly and provide such excellent investment returns in both income and capital growth. Capital growth in student accommodation is materially...
