EP 100: The Wealth Creation Show: The 6 Key Regrets of People on Their Deathbeds!

Many people at the end of their life express regrets of how certain aspects of their lives have played out.

Some people long to have expressed how they truly feel for other people or certain things, or some have regrets from shying away from their true dreams and desires.

This is sometimes due to a lack of confidence or fear but maybe it is simply just they ran out of time!

Do you want to live your best life, make the best of the time you have and have no regrets?

Luckily, you don’t need to head back to school to understand this as Lettings Director, Richard Cook and one of the UK’s most successful property investors, Jim Parker are on hand to discuss

If your home has been on the market for a while, something probably needs to change to get your move underway.

 

The latest government figures show the market performing at about 80% of last year, with transactions in September 2023 around 18% down from September 2022.

 

So, given that buyers are still buying, why are so many homes not selling? Are the owners getting in their own way of moving, or could they be receiving the wrong advice?

FPTV (EP 167) IS YOUR HOME PERFORMING? Unlocking the secrets of your Rightmove results report

Implications of Steady Interest Rates for Fife Homeowners

The Bank of England has held the interest rates at 5.25% for the second consecutive time.

This decision, welcomed by many, especially hints at a semblance of stability for homeowners and prospective buyers in Fife.

The widely anticipated move came on the heels of September’s inflation figures, which remained steady at 6.7%, alleviating some pressure off the Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee.

So what does this mean for Fife Homeowners?

Zoopla UK House Price Index – OCTOBER 2023

Executive summary

  • House price inflation has slowed from 9.6% to -1.1% over the last year
  • 4 in 5 housing markets are registering small annual price falls

  • Transactions have been hit hardest and will be 23% lower than 2022
  • First-time buyers and cash buyers account for 2 in 3 sales in 2023
  • Low price falls and 5% mortgage rates mean housing is still expensive
  • We expect UK house prices to fall 2% over 2024 as rising incomes steadily repair housing affordability
  • 2024 is set for another year of 1m sales. This could be higher if mortgage rates fall back towards 4% sooner than expected in 2024
