Latest base rate rise weakens already fragile housing market

The property market has now officially gone into a retrograde cycle becoming a buyer’s market, as the cost of property finance squeezes down selling prices. The Bank of England looking to dampen inflation, has in fact caused a situation where affordability means that vendors are taking a 7% haircut on their selling prices.

This downward spiral means that an industry sector correction is taking place, creating a schism for estate agents who have housing stock which if correctly priced sells quickly, whilst if not, there is zero activity. Widespread price reductions on the property portals, and lowering amounts of housing stock are the classic signs that the UK public are hunkering down.

It is not a case that buyers are looking for a bargain and so are being selective in what they buy, it is the amount of finance that they can now afford due to the higher lending rates, that is making them unable to pay premuim prices. The housing market is well known for its boom and bust cycles which had traditionally played out over an eight to ten year cycle. But with ultra low interest rates and the Bank of England’s quantitative easing, the present upward trajectory for house price sales has become elongated.

With the holiday season approaching fast, the biggest question is will September the traditional time buyers and sellers look to do business before the end of year cut off, be a productive sales time, or will the Bank of England have raised the base rate for the fourteenth time, causing more housing market chaos and further pushing prices down.
