If you were planning on buying a home this year or next, but are currently wavering on those plans, you are not alone. A recent study by Bloomberg Intelligence indicates 44% of prospective property buyers have been “spooked” by the mini-Budget, and are looking to postpone or delay their house buying plans.
Within this group of people, 56% of respondents say they hope to buy a home in one to two years.
This sort of thinking shouldn’t be a big surprise, and it is not as if the mini-budget has changed much for many people, merely it is more likely to be the final straw for a lot of people.
There are many reasons to reconsider plans in the housing market
For the group of people who said they plan to delay or abandon their house buying activity, 36% of respondents said the cost-of-living crisis was to blame. 34% of respondents said the “worsening economic outlook” was the driving factor behind their decision, while rising mortgages was cited by around 30% of respondents.
Iwona Hovenko, Real Estate Industry Analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence: “Our survey suggests most prospective UK homebuyers haven’t been deterred by mounting economic pressure. Crucially for homebuilders such as Barratt, Persimmon, Taylor Wimpey, Bellway and Berkeley, many people have shown significant flexibility, considering cheaper homes or making other sacrifices to counter rising interest rates.”

"Having rented for many years, I have experienced varying degrees of professionalism & service when it comes to Estate Agents & their relationship and service to tenants. However, it's a professional & effective estate agent that get's the level of support in the right balance for both landlord AND tenant and for me, this is where ADM stand out from many others. ADM had been recommended to me. On my first contact with them they listened to my needs and requirements for the type of property I was looking for keeping me in the loop about what was available. Cut to the quip - my ideal property was found. Their support in the run up to moving in and since has been A1. Anything reported to them get's sorted straight away with the landlord chased if not done asap. If I ever move again, I will ask Alethea to source me a new property as I'm happy to stay with them purely for the excellent service they provide. I cannot say enough good things about them & would recommend them to anyone else."
