To a packed room, 4 lots were offered for sale on behalf of Herefordshire Housing Ltd.

Auctioneer, Jonathan Cook, commented “ The results of our first auction of 2017 are a clear indication of the strength of the Herefordshire property market.

Prices do seem to be rising and there is a shortage of property coming onto the market.”

 

He further added, “ Not all properties are suitable for sale by auction but it can be a very effective way of ensuring that the market is properly ‘tested’ and can bring matters to a conclusion quickly”.

17.10.16 - BUYER ENQUIRIES PICK UP AS MARKET SHOWS SIGNS OF STRENGTHENING - RICS

Prices and sales were also up last month, according to surveyors, as a range of indicators pointed to a strengthening in the market.

In addition, new instructions to sell rose modestly, the survey indicates - however, they are still subdued relative to new buyer enquiries, suggesting that supply in the market will likely remain tight,

Looking ahead, surveyors are relatively upbeat in their expectations, with prices and sales anticipated to rise over the three months ahead.

Indeed, the significant majority of Northern Ireland respondents (89 percent) deem residential property here to offer good value - Northern Ireland had a higher proportion of surveyors saying so about their local market than any other UK region.

As we move out of the summer months and further away from the shock EU Referendum result, the market has gathered some momentum. With supply remaining tight, and the perception that the local market offers good value for buyers, it would not be surprising if prices and activity continued to edge up.

 17.1016  - BANK OF MUM & DAD WILL FUND 25% OF UK MORTGAGES IN 2016

Parents will fund 25% of all property transactions this year, providing deposits for over 300,000 mortgages, according to Legal & General. The insurance giant said that the Bank of Mum and Dad will lend their children £5 billion in 2016 to help them get on the property ladder. This makes the Bank of Mum and Dad the equivalent of a top 10 mortgage lender in the UK. Nigel Wilson, CEO of Legal & General, said: “The Bank of Mum and Dad plays an increasingly vital role in helping young people take their early steps on the housing ladder.

“But the generosity being displayed by UK families doesn’t make up for intergenerational unfairness – younger people today don’t have the advantages the baby-boomers had, including cheap housing that delivered windfall gains.”

However, he said that relying so heavily on the Bank of Mum and Dad risked increasing inequality as many young people today are not lucky enough to be able to access parental support when buying a home or can’t afford to buy even with parental help.

“We have a supply-side problem in housing – we are simply not building enough houses. We need to build more, especially as the Bank of Mum and Dad could soon start to experience a funding crisis of its own,” he added.

According to Legal & General, London is already at a “tipping point” with 51% of average household net wealth going towards helping their children buy a property.
