News:  One in four plan to move home as rate cuts continue


One in four homeowners plan to move in the next six months citing recent mortgage rate cuts, according to the Nottingham Building Society.

But brokers have simultaneously warned that rate cuts may have ended – only 16% of brokers questioned expect any further reductions while 23% are forecasting slight increases and 56% expect rates to stay where they are.

17% of potential movers want to buy less expensive property and release money to use for other purposes while just over one in ten (11%) homeowners thinking of moving say that their finances have deteriorated and they need to move to a less expensive property so they can release cash to help with their living costs.

By contrast, 15% want to move upmarket and buy more expensive homes because they have had a pay rise.
On a regional basis, the research reveals that 27% of people in the East of England are considering moving in the next six months, the highest of any region. This is followed by South West and Wales (26%), Yorkshire & Humberside (24%) and the South East and London (23%).

In terms of the mortgages people are looking to take out, the research suggests that many people believe that mortgage rates may rise because half (50%) of those planning to move home intend to take out a fixed mortgage. Just 8% plan to opt for a standard variable rate mortgage, 5% plan to take out a tracker and 2% intend to have an offset.

Ian Gibbons, Nottingham Mortgage Services Senior Mortgage Broking Manager, said:

“This is traditional home buying season and our research shows that many homeowners are thinking about it.

“The key reason is that mortgage rates have fallen and are extremely competitive at the moment which makes finding a good deal possible if you search the whole market. In the first three months of this year, we saw a 49% increase in mortgage enquiries compared to the fourth quarter of last year.”
