House Prices Set For Increase
House prices are set to be 16% higher by the end of 2015 following a four year recovery in the market that will start late this year, an economic group has predicted.
Property values are predicted to fall for much of 2011, ending the year around 1.4% lower than they started it, according to the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR)
However the market will begin to stabilise towards the end of the year, when the UK’s property shortage will once again underpin prices. Improvements to the major banks balance sheets should lead to them relaxing their strict lending criteria, enabling more people to buy a home.
