Specialist Contractor Mortgages Broker
Specialist Contractor Mortgages broker, Tony Harris, sees a boom year ahead in 2014. Tony, who has been getting contractor mortgages for years at better than market rates, said “The market could be flying next year as there’s a heck of a lot more optimism”.
Tony is the first port of call for contractors whom the hight street bans have put off when they demand three years worth of accounts and only giving quotes of a multiple of their directors’ salaries, which are deliberately kept low to avoid tax.
Help To Buy
The big show in town now is Help To Buy. It is this that has set the market in motion with house prices already heading north. For years lenders weren’t lending except to people who could put up 20% or 25% of the money. That kept first time buyers out of the market and they are crucial to the housing market.
Now the Government is guaranteeing 20% of the money. That means that lenders can now offer 95% mortgages again So, that brings a lot more people into the market. The economic Laws of Supply and Demand say that if you increase the Demand and the Supply stays the same then the price of a commodity (in this case houses) will rise.
Help to Buy will be in place for three years so house prices are expected to soar. A recovering economy will also send house prices north.
Under Starters Orders
Phase 1 of the Government’s plan was to only offer the help with new houses. This was to help boost the construction industry as well as the housing market.
They were going to bring Help To Buy Phase 2 in on January 2014 for existing houses. However, they have brought it forward to October 2013. Buyers are now under starters orders and hoping to get in before house prices head further north.
With Tony’s credibility as a specialist contractor mortgages broker with lenders he can get contractor mortgages quotes from brokers almost immediately. All he needs is a copy of the contract rather than three years of accounts. He also gets contractors mortgages based on their daily rate annualised (daily rate x 5 x 48 x 4) rather than based on their directors’ salary. He can get first time contractors quotes on their very first day of their very first contract.
