A Thriving Property Market Beckons
Are You Ready to Make Your Move?
As we step into the new year, the UK property market is already buzzing with exciting possibilities. Around The Robinson Jackson Group, January 2024 has been phenomenal, and we're delighted to share this momentum with you. But before we unveil the achievements that benefit our valued customers, let's take a moment to understand the broader picture – why this year could be the perfect time to buy, sell, or invest in property.
Positive Signals on the Horizon:
Firstly, the mortgage market is becoming increasingly competitive. Interest rates are dropping, making affordability a more achievable dream for many homeowners and prospective buyers alike. This, coupled with falling inflation, provides welcome news for household finances. Additionally, the Bank of England's decision to hold base rates since August 2023 has injected a sense of stability into the market.
Confidence is Building Steam:
These positive economic indicators naturally boost consumer confidence, with more people feeling optimistic about their property aspirations. This is reflected in the 24% increase in homeowners inviting us to value their properties compared to January 2023. It's a clear sign that people are ready to move and seek the expertise of trusted professionals like us.
Rightmove also Reports Rising Buyer Confidence:
In addition to the positivity among homeowners thinking of selling, our customers will benefit more from the increased demand witnessed across leading property portals for people looking to get ahead of emerging market trends and buy early in 2024.
- According to the Rightmove House Price Index, the number of new properties coming onto the market for sale was 15% higher than in the same period last year.
- Rightmove has seen nine of its ten busiest days on record for people getting a Mortgage in Principle to see what they can afford to borrow, another early sign of movers getting their 2024 plans in place.
- The average 5-year mortgage rate is now 4.86%, compared to 6.11% at the July 2023 peak. While there may be more surprises, early indicators suggest a more stable year for the mortgage market after its volatility from September 2022 onwards.
The Robinson Jackson Advantage:
While the market may be improving, it's crucial to remember that not all estate agents are created equal. The Robinson Jackson Group across SE London and Kent is not just riding the wave but actively propelling our customers towards success. Here's how:
