All the signs are that the Fife housing market is sat on good foundations, yet one key hazard could still scupper the market.

 

‘UK Property Prices Rising at Record Levels’ is the headline of many newspapers. In the last few weeks, the Halifax reported they had grown by 6.5% in the last 12 months, whilst the Nationwide said 7.1% and not to be outdone, the Government’s own Land Registry said 8.6%. Nothing new there then you might think, don’t UK house prices always increase? Continue reading FP TV (EP 39) Will the Fife Property Market Continue to Boom? (watch/read/listen)

Fife Buy-to-Let Property Market Going into Crisis?

…as Fife first-time buyers now only need a 5% deposit for a mortgage.

 

Fife landlords, sell your property portfolios, your tenants will soon be leaving in droves as they buy their first home with the new 5% deposit mortgages backed by the Government’s new mortgage-guarantee scheme revealed in March’s budget! These 95% mortgages are to be supported by the Treasury, lessening losses for mortgage lenders should the borrower be incapable of repaying and get repossessed, as the Government want Generation Rent to turn into Generation Buy.

Yet higher mortgage rates could see Fife buyers paying a lot more each month for the privilege

 

Being a Fife first-time buyer in the last 12 months has not been an easy thing. Just before lockdown there were 400 ‘5% deposit mortgage’ deals and first-time buyers were able shop around to get the best deal. 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.

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).
