An Optimistic Time for the UK Housing Market

Domestic & Commercial Removals, Man & Van, Full Inventory & Wrap & Strap Service, Bolton


As the UK housing market continues to recover, suppliers of certain commodities cannot help but notice an upturn in business. Packaging and moving crate suppliers for instance report an increase in sales and hire, indicating a higher level of activity within the home removals area. Companies involved in removals have been kept busy over the past winter, traditionally a quieter time when removals staff take their annual leave.

Two schemes thought to have influenced the housing market upturn are the Funding for Lending scheme and the Help to Buy scheme. The Funding for Lending scheme, provides funds to lenders on condition that mortgage borrowers and small businesses benefit, although that scheme is now being restricted to just small business lending. The Help to Buy scheme on the other hand has been extended to give borrowers access to mortgages, despite not having a significant amount as a deposit provided they can afford the repayments. There are also helpful features like the BBC online housing calculator, allowing prospective buyers to input details of what they can afford to pay etc in order to find out what their best options are.

Housing market commentator Henry Prior, stated that “the coalition [government’s] ambition is that the housing market goes from strength to strength ahead of the next election”. The results will make home-owners aware of the amount that neighbouring homes are being sold for and perhaps prompt them to put their property up for sale. The imbalance in supply and demand that the market experienced in 2013 is expected to even out in 2014, leading to an increasingly buoyant housing market.
