London, Uk (PressExposure) October 14, 2009 -- Decision Homebuyers, one of the UKâs most trusted and flexible home buying specialists, draw your attention to recent reports about house price rises.
We may still be feeling the effects of the credit crunch, but can 4 consecutive months of rising house prices be looked upon as a light at the end of the tunnel? Nationwideâs monthly survey showed the 1.6% price rise in August to be the largest in over 2 years. The Land Registry corroborates this and adds that in July a price jump of 1.7% was the largest rise in 5 years.
All positive news - or is it? House prices were still 11.7% lower in July than they were at the same time the previous year, but a higher rate of positivity abounds, with 78% of participants in a recent Rightmove survey feeling the bottom of the slump has been reached.
The low interest rate held at 0.5% and a government economy injection of Â£50 billion are said to have contributed to the improved situation, making properties more affordable for first-time buyers. Cluttons estate agent said that London sellers are getting offers within 2% of their asking price, compared to the discounts of up to 30% that they were being forced to make a year ago - clearly an improvement.
âThe recession has affected the property market greatly but we have to be careful heralding a fluctuation as the end of the slump,â says Laurence Smith of Decision Homebuyers. âWhatever the market is doing however, we can buy your property fairly and fast, just visit us online to find out how.â
