Are house prices really on the mend?

False start or true recovery?

Have the last few weeks of optimism been false starts? Are house prices really on the mend or do continued job cuts and more companies going under¬†mean we’ve got further to fall?

Property market recovery

This week I’ll be showing you why the media has turned yet again from optimism to gloom and doom as more job cuts loom, banks struggle and lending continues to be unpredictable. By understanding the market, you’ll see that recent job cuts are part of the natural cycle rather than a signal that the world is coming to an end

But naturally, with the bad comes the good so we’ll take a look at the positive headlines this week.

House price affordability is the best it’s been for years, and this means a massive opportunity for property investors and first-time buyers to jump into the property market. We’ll also be taking a look at what “recession pressures” are, why they mean your tenants can cost you money, and how simple solution is to ensure your properties are managed effectively. To finish up, we’ll look at a funny example of how companies are adapting to create publicity and fight the recession.

As always, if you have any questions or want to have a chat about current opportunities call the team on 0207 812 1255.

Live with passion,
