Will COVID-19 affect the property market?

During these uncertain times relating to COVID-19, we are being asked a lot about how the property market will react.

Walton & Allen estate agents in Nottingham expect the following to happen over the coming weeks.

Property prices will not fall

We expect the property market to stall for a little while whilst we all self isolate and stay safe. We are still agreeing sales but obviously not as many as is expected for this time of year.

We do not expect to see a drop in property prices as a result of COVID-19. In fact, our experience shows that prices are still going up.

Online property views will increase

The majority of Nottinghamshire residents are currently sitting at home for most of the day and night. With not much else to do, they are likely to browse Rightmove, Zoopla and On The Market to find their new home or a new investment property.

The same happens on Boxing Day every year when families are staying in with little to do other than watch TV.

Sales will slow

We have suspended all in-person viewings until further notice. This is likely to be mid-April at the earliest. We are still conducting some video viewings where we can.

Less viewings means less sales, unfortunately. We are still actively pushing properties where we can but most buyers are unlikely to put an offer forward without seeing the home they want to buy first.

We are still agreeing sales

Despite everything that is happening in the world, we are still agreeing sales. We are still getting offers through over email on a daily basis and our inboxes are filling every day with enquiries.

Viewings are also being booked for April.

Now is still a very good time to be on the market if you want to get your property seen.

Properties are still being listed

We are still conducting valuations. People still need to move and get the wheels in motion despite the current situation.

We can provide a property valuation either over email or through video call.

House prices increased by 37.2% in the last decade

The last decade saw a large up and down movement with property prices across the UK.

London saw the highest rise across the UK with property prices increasing by 72 per cent – more than double the UK average. However, this is now slowing down and property prices are beginning to dip in the city.

The average house price across the whole of the UK increased by 27 per cent. This equates to £47,647. The overall average is now £233,000.

East Midlands property prices

Looking locally within the East Midlands, house prices increased by 37.2 per cent over the last ten years. According to Rightmove, the average price now stands at £216,600.

The highest price growth in the East Midlands was Corby with an increase of 65 per cent. The lowest was West Lindsey at 22 per cent.

Low interest rates

This decade has also had very low interest rates which has helped keep mortgage payments down for many people. This has helped first time buyers are those looking to upsize.

Looking to the next decade

House prices are forecast to increase by another 15.3 per cent over the next five years.

The East Midlands is actually thought to grow more than this, with an average increase expected of 18.2 per cent.

Nottingham Property Prices

Spring is drawing to a close and Nottingham property prices are still growing.

We are still one of the top performing cities for property price growth across the UK and have been since last year.

Top 3 for property price growth

Hometrack have reported that Nottingham property prices have grown by 4.5% in the last 12 months. This puts the city in joint third place across the UK.

The cities placed higher in their report were Manchester (joint third), Liverpool and Leicester at 4.9% growth (joint second) and Glasgow at 5.1% growth.

Nottingham was also third for growth in the last 3 months. Prices rose by 2.0%, behind Oxford and Glasgow at 2.1% and Liverpool at 2.6%.

The Hometrack report also states that the average Nottingham house price is £154,500.

Market remains strong

In their latest blog, Rightmove have stated that buyer demand is extremely high. This is usually the case during spring, as more look to move in the spring and summer months than any other.

Political uncertainty also seems to be a thing of the past; The number of houses coming to the market are almost the same as last year. This means it is business as usual, despite talk of a no deal Brexit.

We are also seeing less time wasters looking to buy. People who do make offers are serious and want to move as quickly as possible. Fall through rates are dropping and the time it is taking from putting your property on the market to completion has dropped.

What does this mean for your property?

If you bought your property for £250,000 three months ago then you could have made £5,000 already!

Nottingham estate agents see spring price boost

Nottingham estate agents have seen a big spring boost in the property market.

Rightmove have reported that property prices have grown by over 1% in the last month alone. This rise is the biggest month on month for over a year. It is also the largest rise at this time of year since 2016.

This growth is particularly good news with the uncertain political climate.

2019 Nottingham Property Market

The Nottingham property market has been mixed throughout 2019. Property prices have continued to steadily grow but there has been a shortage of property coming to market compared to people looking to buy. This is no doubt due to delays and problems with Brexit.

The good news is that most are deciding that they cannot hold off any longer and the Nottingham property market is now looking more positive than ever this year so far.

What does this mean for the property market?

Miles Shipside, director of Rightmove says: “This extension could give hesitating home movers encouragement that there is now a window of relative certainty in uncertain times.”

He also stated that he would expect people to take advantage of “static property prices” and “cheap fixed-rate mortgages”.

Nottingham housing market strongest in UK

New figures from Zoopla reveal that the Nottingham housing market is the strongest in the UK.

The Daily Mail has reported that Nottingham property owners are selling their homes in good time and with little discounts too.

Nottingham Housing Market

According to the latest reports by Hometrack, Nottingham was joint third for growth again. Nottingham house prices grew 5.2% over the last 12 months. The city was joint third with Belfast and was just behind Manchester at 5.6% growth and Leicester at 6.1% growth.

Nottingham house price growth is also high above the rest of the UK average, which currently stands at just 3.1%!

The other great news here is that Nottingham had a below average price discount of just 2 per cent. This means that Vendors who are looking to sell their property are hardly having to accept discounted offers. Sales are also agreed quicker than average in Nottingham. The average time to achieve a sale was also less than 2 months.

nottingham housing market

Nottingham housing market remains strong

Interestingly, some of the top cities for growth last month have seen a large drop. Edinburgh, for example, registered property price growth of 6.6% last month (year on year), but has dropped to only 3.0% growth this month.

Nottingham remains resilient and has stayed strong. As mentioned, the city remains in the top three for growth across the UK.

East Midlands housing market

The East Midlands as a whole has seen growth over both the last month and the last twelve months. Rightmove report that there is a month on month increase of 0.7% and an annual  increase of 2.7%. The East Midlands is also one of the quickest areas to agree a sale in England, just behind the West Midlands.
