Property Market Update

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Welcome to the first blog in this new series. Over the coming weeks we will be looking into every aspect of the property market, covering news, views and debates.

We begin with the news that house prices have continued to grow for the second consecutive month. The figure of growth came in at 0.1%.

The figures released by Hometrack property website suggested that demand in the property market had increased by 25% over the first quarter of 2012.

Meanwhile, National Australia Bank has taken the decision to pull out of the UK citing ‘depression era conditions’ and a double dip in the commercial property market.

The cuts will see 1,400 people lose their jobs and the announcement drew criticism from Unite union.

David Fleming from Unite said it was disgusting that, “Staff across Yorkshire and Clydesdale banks would wake up to hear that their jobs are being cut through the morning news reports.”

The only positive for the UK’s property market was that NAB did say that mortgage lending and deposits had grown despite the poor state of the UK’s economy.

The slip back into recession is believed to have further damaged confidence in the UK’s profitability.

New Property Blog

Friday, April 27th, 2012

 

Hello there and welcome to the first in this new series of blogs!

You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet in this section of the website over the last few months, but that’s about to change.

Over the coming weeks we will be posting new blogs every other day. These blogs will be exploring all things relating to the housing market.

In one of the deepest ever recessions, buying and selling housing is a hot topic. We hope that this page will become a useful resource for those interested in the property market.

We’ll also be offering plenty of hints and tips on how to find the best deals for your property if you’re looking to sell.

As well as that, there will be plenty of practical advice on things such as preparing to move house and arranging the best value mortgages.

To summarise, this blog will soon be full of useful information and helpful guides that anyone with the slightest interest in property will hopefully enjoy.

Check back on Monday for the first blog, and don’t forget to leave your opinions on any of the topics we write about in the comments box.
