First Time Buyers Property Boom
A first time buyers property boom has sent the property market soaring. Prior to the Help to Buy scheme being brought in by the Government, contractors were having to stump up 20% to 25% deposits if they wanted to buy a house or apartment. As you can imagine, most first time buyers could not afford that.
Therefore, these high deposits pretty much excluded first time buyers from the market and they are normally the lifeblood of the property market.
Laws of Supply and Demand
If you cut the demand for a commodity then, if the supply stays the same, the price decreases. Equally, according to the economic Laws of Supply and Demand, if you increase the demand for a commodity, and the supply remains the same, then the price goes up.
That is why house prices were previously falling and now they are rising.
With the addition of first time buyers to the market the demand has increased and so the prices have been rising. This has been because of a first time buyers property boom.
House Prices Rising
Recent figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) have shown that house prices rose by 9.% in 2014.
Mortgage lenders have reported that this first time buyers property boom has led to a record level of mortgages sold to first time buyers.
The average house price is now £272,000 – up £22,000 in just a year.
