March is the Golden Month

- Wed 12 Mar 2014

I have been saying all year that the time to buy is now. The market is rising and mortgages are both cheap and available. There is a demand for property and there is still a choice with our offices still carrying good stocks of property for sale. One of our Senior Mortgage Advisors summed it up perfectly yesterday when he said that March is the 'Golden Month' in addition to the things I have already stated he pointed out that new MMR come into effect next month where mortgage applications will be judged on affordability more than just straight income criteria. This will involve more checking and analysis of the person and their spending habits in addition to their income and he thought that inevitably mortgages will take longer to process and become more difficult to obtain. There is still time to buy and get your mortgage in place before the new legislation comes in, so don't delay. Right now buying a property is the best thing to do and it will never be this affordable or accessible again. I am certainly aware that the buyers down here in the South West know that, as sales have risen steeply in March. This is a great opportunity for anyone thinking of selling because the buyers are about, they are serious and in a position to buy.
