Market insight with Tony Jamieson
“At the beginning of 2014, there was a shortage of housing stock in this area and, as a result, prices were forced upwards. There has been a continued flourish of new planning applications throughout the year, which will result in more new homes being built in the future. The Mortgage Market Review has put restraints on buyers being able to obtain finance that, coupled with slower market movement in the city, has resulted in a ‘cooler’ market.”
“The general election is sure to have an effect, but I don’t believe it is having a huge impact on the market right now. The changes in stamp duty have led to a slowdown in the sale of properties above the £2 million mark, and although these changes should prove beneficial to the majority of purchases, the upper end of the market will be worse off.
“The good news is that despite the shortage in housing stock, particularly for first-time buyers, there are plenty more houses being built or about be built in the next few years.”
