When the first lockdown hit, 5% deposit mortgages disappeared, meaning that as many Fife would-be first-time buyers were about to buy their first Fife home in 2020, the rug was pulled from under their feet.

How wealth is distributed will always be a contentious issue, especially as the Baby Boomers (those aged between their late 50’s and late 70’s) wealth has grown exponentially over the last 20 years, compared to the wealth of the younger generation.

Over the last six months, the Fife Property Market has been flourishing. As soon as an estate agent’s ‘For Sale’ flag went up, neighbours would be checking out Rightmove to see the internal pictures and compare the asking price to their own home (go on … admit you do that too – every Fife homeowner does). Flabbergasted by optimistic asking price tags, those same Fife homeowners stand open-mouthed to see a sold slip added to the board a few weeks later.

The 2020 Review of the Fife Property Market (3 min read)

Looking back at the Fife property market for 2020, it can certainly be seen as a frenetic game of two halves, albeit with a very long half time in the spring.

Boris Johnson has attracted both praise and horror in equal measure with a new plan for 95% mortgages to help beleaguered first time buyers to get on the property ladder, but would that expose UK taxpayers to too much risk? In this article I discuss the implications of what that would mean both nationally and locally in Fife. Continue reading Fife’s ‘Generation Rent’ to Become ‘Generation Buy’? (3 min read)
