UK Mortgage Market Trends Show Signs of Recovery

Monday, January 22nd, 2024

Recent data released by the BOE (Bank of England) suggests that the UK Mortgage market trends may have seen the first ‘green shoots’ of recovery with increases in approvals for both purchase mortgages and remortgages between October and November 2023. * 

This data shows a reverse to the trends in previous months and is potentially an indication that the UK mortgage market is recovering following an extended period of turmoil. 

Reduced Inflation and Mortgage Rate Cuts Boost Confidence

This news, coupled with the recent announcements regarding a reduction in inflation and a raft of mortgage rate reductions by lenders looking to kick-start 2024, can only help the confidence of prospective buyers and relieve some of the financial pressures and concerns for existing mortgage holders.

Unlocking The ‘Affordability Trap’ for Prospective Borrowers

The economic landscape and lower interest rates may also help potential borrowers with affordability as many first-time buyers have delayed entering the property market because they either cannot get the size of mortgage they want or need or because the mortgage they need is beyond what they can afford.

Increased Activity Shows Signs of Improved Confidence

Some estate agents have also seen a jump in activity in recent weeks, signalling improved confidence amongst those seriously looking to purchase.

Proactive Mortgage Advisers Are Hard at Work!

Mortgage advisers are therefore currently working harder than ever despite the recently subdued market, as they strive to find the best and most appropriate products for new customers while monitoring the ongoing UK mortgage market trends to ensure that those customers undertaking a purchase, remortgage, or product transfer will be on the lowest rate available with the chosen lender.
