The Office of National Statistics (ONS) has shown the average house price inflation to February 2016 to be 7.6%, down on last year for the same period (7.9%). The ONS reported that house price annual inflation was 8.2% in England, 2.8% in Wales, 2.4% in N Ireland and – 0.8% in Scotland....
MARCH 25, 2016 | BY Bill Reid
According to the ONS (Office of National Statistics data on house prices, the value of the average home in the UK increased by 7.9% in the year to January 2016, a rise of 1.2% compared to December 2015. The report outlined that the annual house price inflation was 8.6% in England, minus 0.3% in Wales, 0.1% in Scotland and 0.8% in Northern Ireland. The driving force behind the increase is of course SE England up 11.7%, but even in England it is still patchy growth. NE England had a fall of 3.1%. Still up is up, no matter how slight and we have certainly seen a major surge in both viewings and sales, this being our busiest year to date. It is still very much the lower end that is moving quickest, but it is starting to move up the price ladder, which has to be good news for all. Scotland stood at a growth of 0.1% (average), indicates that there are as many below as above, so many house holders are still struggling to sell. Positive figures can only be good news no matter how slight and coupled with our dramatic increase in sales and viewings is certainly encouraging. Below I add our budget brief which may be of interest to you....

Welcome to 2016! I thought it would be useful for us to review the Scottish Housing Statistics for quarter 4 of 2015. The daily press we read constantly talks of the UK market as a whole, but the true picture in Scotland is very different to that of England. A reality check is always useful....
DECEMBER 14, 2015 | BY Bill Reid
As we come to the year end there are signs that the housing market may be starting to climb out of the doldrums. It is still very patchy and many sellers have not adjusted there prices after the recession, so we have some houses going back up in price and selling whilst others sit and wait for prices to catch up with them post-recession. Just as we see signs of recovery, America is almost certainly going to put interest rates up at the end of this year or early next. This will no doubt send shock waves round the World as people fear the same happening at home....

Market Update It is likely that the Governor of the Bank of England in his report on Thursday will highlight the UK economy is losing its fizz and it might be a while before it gets going enough to spark inflation.

Market Update Average earnings in the three months to July rose at their fastest rate for six years. Consumer price inflation fell back to zero in August, from 0.1% the month before. This was in line with the consensus forecast and was helped by a fall in petrol prices. Core inflation, which leaves out volatile food and energy prices, also fell, from July’s 1.2% to 1%....

The World awaits the USA interest rate announcement on Thursday; many are expecting a hike of 0.25%, the first rise in 9 years. This is unsettling markets Worldwide, many believing it is still too early. The difficulty in judging, is interest rates are used to tinker with the economy 6 to 12 months in advance, so it depends where the Americans see their economy in a years’ time. My personal view is it is still too early, but we will have to leave that decision to Obama. On the positive side, if rates where to go up it would be a strong indication that the World has finally shaken of the effects of the worst banking crisis in history and worst recession since the 1930s. I don’t believe it has, yes we are on the mend, but not ready for the recovery to be dampened down....

At its meeting ending on 9 September 2015, the MPC voted by a majority of 8-1 to maintain Bank Rate at 0.5%. The MPC admitted that there remains a "range of views among MPC members about the balance of risks to inflation relative to the target".  At the Committee’s latest meeting, the majority of members judged that the current stance of monetary policy remained appropriate. However Ian McCafferty preferred to increase Bank Rate by 25 basis points, given his view that building domestic cost pressures would otherwise be likely to lead to inflation overshooting the target in the medium term....
SEPTEMBER 09, 2015 | BY Bill Reid
Mortgage lending was up in the second quarter 2015 by 11%on quarter one. This should be good news, but much of it was re mortgages, people locking in a fixed rate in fear of a rate rise, which is much further down the road than the B of E would have us believe. 5.5% of the increase was BTL rather than FTB whom we desperately need to get the property market back into balance....

AUGUST 12, 2015 | BY Bill Reid
Market Update HMRC has reported a fall in housing transactions particularly at the higher end, and official figures suggest it may be due to the changes in stamp duty. I think we could have all told them that last year when the stamp duty, now Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT), was raised quite considerably for any property over £325,000. Every time tax is put up, tax takes fall, yet successive Governments continue to make political statements rather than run the Country efficiently. As I suggested at the time, the lower end of the market, where there is no LBTT, house prices have gone up and the first time buyer has a bigger problem than before, not to mention the HMRC get no tax take. At the higher end transactions have fallen by almost a third leaving a big hole in the revenues income. Between Jan and June 2014 there was 3,044 transactions over £1.5m, this year over the same period there was only 2,026....

UK housing transactions in May were down 4.5% on May of last year when there were 103,110 sales. While the figures show what a long way the market has come from its darkest days – in May 2009, there were only 64,640 transactions – transactions are still a long way behind pre-recession figures....

We attended a NAEA meeting today in Dundee for a regulatory update. As expected all agents North of the Border are experiencing difficulty at the top end of the market as a result of Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (the old stamp duty). Edinburgh has been hit hard with its increased values. The feeling is, that having changed twice last year, it is unlikely to change again soon. Short of the Scottish Government starting to realise that they are not getting the revenue they had expected, I feel we are stuck with it for now....

Inflation is now officially zero as predicted and will no doubt drop even lower into the minus. This coupled with a strong pound makes a back drop for long term low inflation, which in turn means long term low interest rates. All good news for the home buyer you would think. And yet home sales fell across the UK by 8% Feb 14 to Feb 15. And house prices fell 0.2% between December and January. Quite a mixed bag when we consider the mad flurry we had here in Perthshire at the start of the year. The Perth area does seem to have tailed off, yet Dundee is still going strong....
FEBRUARY 25, 2015 | BY Bill Reid
Another good week on the housing front, with viewings up and offers up. There is a UK wide shortage of property coming on to the market, all estate agents reporting reducing stock. You would think that would push prices up in the future, we are not seeing it yet but I’m sure it is ahead of us. There is definitely some real movement in the market place....

As we move from January into February the property market is maintaining its pace at both ends. The top end and first time buyers/buy to let’s going well. Mortgage approvals are also on the up slightly, which is even more encouraging and viewing levels being maintained. Hopefully we are seeing the start of some real movement. We are still lagging the rest of the UK and unfortunately falling further behind, but any improvement is welcome. Please see the graph from the Office of National Statistics....

Another week passes with no great surprises, Greece voted the way we anticipated, the European Central Bank started QE as anticipated, only 4 years late, but Brussel’s never did like to rush. The markets Worldwide have been clouded with the uncertainty, but let’ s not get too excited, the total Greek economy, is smaller than the profits of Apple!, good to keep things in perspective I always think. In the short term all markets including property will feel insecure, but common sense will prevail. Greece has always been about politics, never economics, in monetary terms it really is irrelevant....
JANUARY 22, 2015 | BY Bill Reid
The European Central Bank (ECB) has just announced a programme of Quantitive Easing (Buying bonds (pumping money into the economy)) at 60 billion Euros per month from March until the end of 2016.

Good news on the horizon. The Governor of the Bank of England (GBE) has announced today that he expects inflation to fall below 1% in the next six months, which pushes back any hope of an interest rate rise towards the end of next year at the very earliest (more likely beyond). You will note this is something I have been indicating for some time now and hopefully the media will start reporting reality rather than scare mongering of potential rate rises....

Stamp Duty Stamp duty in Scotland changes on 9 October 14 and will be implemented in April 15, but we would do well to remind ourselves that this is a major source of revenue rather than a controller of house prices. It therefor follows that when the changes come, they may get rid of some of the distortions in the market, but no Government is going to give up that source of income, indeed the net changes in October may well see an introduction of a lower rate at a lower level. The chart below shows the current situation for 1013/14 to date, you know where your own house lies. This coupled with restricted lending and banking criteria much more stringent, gives the purchaser quite a large deposit to accumulate. In theory 95% lending is back, but in practice it is hard to qualify for more than 75%, add that to the chart below and you will understand why the current buyer would think twice....

Looking to Sell?

In truth the buyers will decide, but you can enhance your chances of getting the best deal possible, by preparing your property for the market.

Looking for a Solicitor?

Once you have agreed an offer with your Estate Agent, you then require a solicitor or conveyancer to transfer the legal ownership of the property from seller to buyer.
