Hope you are well – and have had a good 2011!

Here at Property Secrets we have had our busiest year for 5 years, and sourced over 500 properties for clients – as w well as increasing our own portfolios.

So how do we see 2012 for property investors?

We end 2011 pretty strongly cconsidering the doom and gloom all around us economically, with house prices, according to Nationwide; going up 0.4% in November to £16 65,798 and mortgages at a 2 year high.

When looking at how we pred dict house price trends for 2012, there are 4 kkey influences to review – that will have the ma ajor influences on house prices in the UK.

1. Supply of finance/creddit and at what interest rates – easily availabble credit leads to prices rising – and is m more likely to lead to an unrealistic growth in prices. When credit is less easily available theen prices can stay flat or even go down.

2. Employment – clearly if people are not in employment it is much harder for them to get a mortgage, and if people are concerned about their employment prospects they are less likely to commit to a move, or to take on a bigger mortgage – which can lead to prices falling or staying flat.

So the supply of new properties coming on the market in 2012 can make a significant difference to the values of property.
