Getting On The Property Market
Posted by Administrator : Sunday 10th March 2013
EASIER SAID THAN DONE! The mortgage and property market looks to be improving slightly through better mortgage deals. However the market still lacks direction and combined with lack of incentives for new buyers and government cuts it looks like it could be a while before it rises.
Many new potential buyers are put off by high deposits and high interest rates meaning the buying and selling sector of the property market is struggling to improve. However the rental market has somewhat improved in recent years and it is continuing to improve locally in the Pontefract area.
