News:  Sales surge 9% with highest completions in seven years


The latest House Price Index for England and Wales from LSL has reported that the property market has "shrugged off a slowdown" with the highest number of completed home sales in seven years.

House prices have climbed 0.7% (or £2,026) in a month, in response to demand, and driven by an uplift in activity outside of London.

Prices have fallen at the top end of London market, as prime central areas of the capital decouple from rest of country.

David Newnes, director of Reeds Rains and Your Move estate agents, comments:

“This increased level of house sale completions marks a considerable – though laborious – reflection of the increased buyer activity earlier in the year since the recession zapped the energy from the market. October saw the highest level of house sales completed in a month since November 2007. In part this was driven by a better throughput of sales that had sat in the pipeline for some time, finally coming through to completion.

“On a monthly basis, house price inflation has edged up from just a 0.3% increase in September, as we see some modest growth. Recent hiccups in the market have not shaken the overall underlying stability and the average UK homeowner has seen the value of their property rise £26,500 (or 10.5%) in the past year. Average house prices across England and Wales have reached a new record for the sixteenth successive month.

“Not only this, but activity is starting to shift towards areas where the recovery still requires support and attention. The biggest uplift in completions in Q3 2014 compared to Q3 2013 has been witnessed outside of London – completed house sales in both the West Midlands and East Midlands have risen 22%, while in London house sale completions are up by just 3% over the same period. In regions such as the North and East Anglia, which saw average house prices slump during September, further growth in activity is critical to warm up the local recovery. First-time buyers in particular need shielding from any future cooling interventions from the government or Bank of England

News:  2.5m 'last time buyers' plan to downsize


Almost 2.5 million ‘last time buyers’ plan to downsize their homes, according to new research from Prudential.

Figures from the bi-annual Prudential Downsizing Index reveal that four in 10 (41%) homeowners over the age of 55 plan to sell their current property – up from 38% six months ago.

Three quarters (75%) of homeowners, over the age of 55 who are planning to sell, say they will downsize. The average amount of capital they hope to free-up as a result of these property sales is £87,600 – up from £85,300 in May of this year.

Of those expecting to release equity from downsizing, 45% will spend newly released cash on big ticket or luxury purchases like holidays. 48% say they will save or invest the money, while 40% will use the funds to boost their pension pots.

Having too much space appears to be the main driver for downsizing, according to 61% of homeowners over the age of 55. The convenience of running a smaller home (58%), accessing equity (34%), reducing the day-to-day costs of running a large home (22%) and changes in personal circumstances, including divorce or separation (21%), complete the top five reasons for downsizing.
