The Only Way Is Up – Property Predictions For 2016
None of us know exactly what lies ahead, but experts always have their views; as do everyday people who like to keep a keen eye on their property prospects and wider finances. A recent survey has asked public opinion on a range of issues, including house prices and salaries – and most predictions involve increases.
According to readers of financial website LoveMoney.com, several aspects of our economy could experience a rise in 2016. More than a fifth of survey respondents agreed with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) that house prices were likely to increase by 6% or more, while nearly half also agreed that they would go up, but probably only by up to 5%.
UK homeowners with tracker mortgages are always keen to keep an eye on the Bank Of England’s base rate, for which a rise has long been anticipated in recent times – and LoveMoney’s reader research revealed expectations of a small increase (0.75%) among 49% of people. However, 33% believe nothing will change.
Meanwhile, 50% of people believe that inflation will increase by 1%; with incomes optimistically expected by nearly half of survey respondents to increase by 2%. If the latter materialises, it could be good news for those hoping to buy homes, who require proof of a good salary to obtain a mortgage – but will the changes come soon enough for home owners keen to achieve a quick house move?
Opinions on the stock market were more varied, with 33% believing there would be an increase of 5% or less, but other opinion divided between consistency (18%), a fall of 5% (17%), an increase of up to 10% (12%) and other potential changes.
