According to the Land Registry, house prices are on the rise year on year. With prices in England and Wales up by 4.6 compared to July 2014. This could be of interest to those looking to purchase a property or remortgage an existing property.
In fact, in July alone, house prices rose by 1.7% on the previous month. Meaning that the average price of properties in England and Wales now stands at £183,861. London saw the biggest increase, but the South East and the South West were not far behind. In the South East, property prices have grown by 8.2% and in the South West by 4.2%.
What this means for those looking for a mortgage
Adam Nanson, Managing Director of Your Mortgage Expert comments:
“With house prices continuing to rise across the country, it means that people are investing more to purchase new properties. This could perhaps explain why the number of house completions in England and Wales has decreased slightly.
“It is therefore more important than ever that, when people are looking to purchase a new property, they understand exactly how much they can afford when they start negotiations. A mortgage adviser can really help with this because they will take the time to assess your circumstances and will also get you access to the current deals.
