New Homes Commentary for July 2009

New Homes Commentary for July 2009
Skip to Headline Statistics

The new homes market continues to 'bottom out' from a price decline perspective. Although purchases are being held back by a lack of mortgage lending - particularly on new builds - new builds property prices are clearly at rock bottom across the UK. They will also be the best indicator of which areas are starting to recover as stock of new builds are so low, developers will put prices up as soon as they are sure demand for their properties are exceeding supply.

So, if you are thinking of buying a new build home and can secure the finance to do so, now is definitely a good time to be looking (as long as you are planning to stay in the home for five or more years).
