HBF RESEARCH REVEALS SAVING FROM BUYING NEW HOMES

HBF RESEARCH REVEALS SAVING FROM BUYING NEW

The price of choosing a second hand home over new build could be as much as £50,000, according to research launched today (May 15) by the Home Builders Federation.

Avoid the money pit – the cost of upgrading old to newreveals that upgrading a second hand home to the same standard of functionality and finish as a new property could become this costly. The research launches alongside the start of New Homes Week supported by HBF, which highlights the advantages for consumers of buying new.

Full Story

The research looks at the work that might be necessary to refurbish an older property, breaking down the possible costs, with a consumer typically paying out £7,900 for buying and fitting a new kitchen, £3,800 for a new bathroom, £8,850 to rewire a home and £6,185 for installing central heating, as well as other outlays. “The costs for people moving into an older home can quickly mount up,” HBF said.

HBF’s research finds further savings from buying new, including a new home’s inherent energy efficiency meaning that 94% of homes built in 2016 achieve an energy efficiency rating of A to C. According to the research, only 26% of second hand homes reach these standards.

Stewart Baseley, HBF’s executive chairman, said: “Buyers of new build homes enjoy a huge number of benefits over those purchasing a second hand home.

“During the buying process customers will receive a high level of service and support from trained sales staff. Upon moving into a property that is designed for modern living, there are all the advantages of living in a home with brand new fixtures and fittings and the latest energy efficiency technologies.

“This report helps to highlight the hidden savings that buyers of new build homes make. While most people have a budget put aside to get the little jobs done, costs soon add up when you need to replace a bathroom or a kitchen.”

MORTGAGE SPENDING REACHES AN HISTORIC LOW

MORTGAGE SPENDING REACHES AN HISTORIC LOW

The Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) says mortgage spending reached an "historic low" in September as rates fell in the wake of the Brexit vote.

It reported that home movers and first-time buyers benefited after the Bank of England cut the base rate of interest to 0.25% in August amid fears the economy would grind to a halt after the shock Leave win.

Full Story

The CML said its members had responded by trimming many of their own rates, with mortgage repayments for those climbing the property ladder typically taking up 17.7% of their monthly household income in September.

The figure for first-time buyers was 17.8%. The figure includes capital and interest repayments.

Low interest rates have been a feature of the market ever since the financial crisis, though soaring house price growth has raised deposits and stamp duty costs.

Official figures released by the Office for National Statistics showed average house prices rising by 7.7% in the year to September - rising 0.2% month-on-month.

:: Housebuilding target to be missed - minister

It meant prices were about £16,000 higher on average in September this year than they were in September 2015, while a first-time buyer faced paying 7.5% more for a home than they did a year ago.

But Paul Smee, the CML's director general, said low rates "should help turn strong appetite for home ownership into a reality as we approach the closing months of the year".

More recent housing market studies have pointed to high demand for properties but too few homes being built or being put on the market - driving asking prices up.

The CML's figures showed homeowners borrowed a total of £11.4bn for house purchases in September, up by 4% year-on-year.

Why Buy a New Build Home?

WHY BUY A NEW BUILD HOME?

Whether you are a fan of their fresh exteriors and modern fittings, looking for a safe and secure home to raise a family, or just want to feel like your home is truly your own; new build properties have a lot to offer.

Full Story

Getting you on the property ladder

One of the main appeals of a new build home is the innovative purchase schemes that are available to help buyers who may otherwise simply not be able to afford to buy their own home.Schemes include shared ownership and shared equity or Government schemes like FirstBuy and NewBuy. Our advisers can help you understand the difference between all of these schemes and how they could apply to your circumstances.

A fresh start

A new build home is fresh, bright and clean, and untouched by previous owners. It provides a blank canvas on which you can stamp your own style and personality from day one.

Greener and cheaper

Today’s new build homes are built to the latest environmental standards and are cheaper to run. New build properties are six times more energy efficient and generate over 60% less carbon dioxide emissions than older homes. This means that, not only are new build home-buyers doing helping the environment, they are saving themselves money.

The choice is yours

Buying a new build home gives you lots of exciting choices. There are a huge range of developments with a variety of shapes and sizes, from city centre bachelor pads to suburban family homes. You can decorate every room to your liking without worrying about the cost of taking up old carpets or stripping the walls.

Safe and secure

New build homes may also offer increased security and safety, with many containing high specification alarm systems, as well as being designed with electrical and fire safety in mind.

They also tend to be spatially economic so every inch of every room can be utilised to its maximum potential.

No chain involved

With a new build home you do not have to wait for the owners of the property to find somewhere to live before you can move in. Once you have reserved your property you will be given a completion date so you can plan your move with the reassurance that you will not be let down. This removes the house-buying chain and the challenges that are often associated with moving into a second-hand home.

Peace of mind
Many house builders provide a comprehensive customer care service and added peace of mind is provided by the 10-year warranty issued by organisations such as the National House-Building Council.

KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY. . . AND YOU CAN BUY  THAT FIRST HOME

KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY. . . AND YOU CAN BUY THAT FIRST HOME

Families are being offered new ways to help hopeful first-time buyers get on the housing ladder – without parents having to hand over large sums of money forever via the ‘Bank of Mum and Dad’.

 

 

Full Story

A small band of innovative lenders have created schemes that allow parents, grandparents or other relatives to pool their resources with the younger generation. 

As long as the youngsters pay their mortgage bill each month, the helpers retain access to their savings and can withdraw their cash, often plus interest, as soon as the initial mortgage deals end.

‘Young people still face a huge challenge getting the mortgage they need,’ says Sarah Pennells, financial expert and founder of the SavvyWoman website. 

‘So any flexibility or innovation from lenders is welcome.’

Here are three key ways lenders are allowing family and friends to help first-time buyers:

The savings route 

With the Barclays Family Springboard mortgage, first-time buyers or home movers can get loans with deposits of as little as 5 per cent of their purchase price. 

But they pay a lower interest rate than on normal, low deposit deals because parents or other family members put 10 per cent of the price in a linked savings account for three years.

If the borrower pays the mortgage on time in this period, the helper can withdraw the cash at the end of the deal – having earned a generous interest rate of Bank of England base rate plus 1.5 per cent.

If the borrower misses repayments Barclays can keep the savings account in place for more than three years and it can retain the money for good if the property is repossessed and sold at a loss during the arrangement. Use the deal and buyers can get fee-free three- year fixed rates from 2.89 per cent.

The Family Building Society provides a similar scheme, with three-year fixes at 3.34 per cent, where buyers put down as little as a 5 per cent deposit and family members pay up to 20 per cent of the purchase price into a linked ‘security account’.

The offset strategy 

Yorkshire and Chelsea building societies help younger buyers cut their monthly repayments by allowing family members to put money in up to three linked offset accounts.

The money in the accounts will not earn interest, but is deducted from the borrower’s mortgage balance each month before working out how much their repayment will be.

So if you have a mortgage of £90,000 and one relative put £10,000 in an offset account and another puts in £5,000, you only pay interest on £75,000. The people putting the money in can withdraw it at any time – but the youngster’s monthly bills will rise if they do so.

The mortgage interest rates for people taking advantage of this scheme are around 0.2 percentage points higher than on Yorkshire’s standard loan deals. 

At the moment it has two-year offset fixes from 3.88 per cent. The Family Building Society offers similar offset deals – and first-time buyers can get a double benefit by using an offset arrangement alongside its security account.

The guarantor schemes

Guarantor loan schemes have gone out of fashion in recent years, but a handful of lenders do still offer them. 

They work by getting family members to use the equity in their own homes, and their incomes, to guarantee that the new borrower will meet their repayments.

The theory is that if an established owner and borrower guarantees your loan you are more likely to have your application accepted and will qualify for a lower interest rate. 

Such an arrangement is offered by less well-known lenders such as Aldermore Bank, which will lend up to the full purchase price of a property with the right guarantee arrangements in place.

The loans do not come cheap, though: it has two-year fixed rate loans at 5.48 per cent with set-up fees of more than £1,000.

WE AIM TO TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF BUYING A NEW HOME & HELP THE PROCESS RUN AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE!

Buying or selling a home is more stressful than having a child, changing jobs or getting married, a survey has found. However, at Fletcher Homes we aim to take the stress out of buying your brand new home by making the process run a s smoothly as possible. We are there every step of the way to offer help and advice including liaising with solicitors.

Full Story

About seven in 10 who have bought or sold a house had found it stressful, according to the research from Which? Mortgage Advisers.

A divorce was the only major life event in the survey which people considered to be more distressing than buying or selling a property, with nearly eight in 10 (78%) people surveyed who had been divorced saying they found the process stressful.

Nearly 2,000 people took part in the survey who had either bought or sold a house in the previous five years.

The survey also asked people if they had experienced other life events and, if they had, it asked them if they had found these events stressful.

Some 70% of people who had sold a house had found it stressful, while 69% of people who had bought a house felt this way.

Arranging care for an elderly relative came closely behind in terms of the burden of stress, with 68% of people who had done this saying they found it stressful.

Meanwhile, just over half (53%) of people who had had a child said this had caused them stress, while 49% of people who had changed jobs said this, as did 40% who had got married.

More than one in three (36%) people said finding a school for their child had been stressful, while one in five (22%) retired people said that leaving work had been stressful.

Mortgage lending has leapt to its strongest level since 2008

MORTGAGE LENDING HAS LEAPT TO ITS STRONGEST LEVEL SINCE 2008

Mortgage lending has leapt to its strongest level since 2008 as borrowers rush to take up a raft of competitive home loan deals.

About £21.8 billion of mortgages were handed out in October, marking the highest monthly figure since July 2008, when £23.6 billion was advanced, the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) said.

The CML said total mortgage lending across 2015 looks likely to top its previous forecast of £209 billion.

Full Story

The October lending figure was 8% higher than September's total of £20.1 billion and 19% higher than the £18.4 billion handed out in October last year.

There have been fresh signs of competition heating up in the mortgage market, as lenders look to meet end-of-year targets by sharpening up their rates before the Christmas lull.

The average rate available on a two-year fixed-rate mortgage deal across all deposit sizes fell to 2.68% in October, from 2.72% in September, according to recent figures from MoneySuperMarket.

The typical three-year fixed rate on offer fell from 3.1% in September to 3.08% in October. This was the lowest average rate for a three-year fixed-rate mortgage in 2015 so far, according to MoneySuperMarket's figures.

Bob Pannell, the CML's chief economist, said low inflation and competitive mortgage deals are helping to support the lending pick-up.

He said: "Lending this year is likely to exceed our forecast of £209 billion, though affordability pressures will limit business volumes."

Howard Archer, chief UK and European economist for IHS Global Insight, said mortgage lending is being lifted by many people remortgaging to try to lock in low interest rates before they start to rise.

He said: "We expect house prices to see solid increases over the coming months amid healthy buyer interest and a shortage of properties."

Jonathan Harris, director of mortgage broker Anderson Harris, said borrowers who can "jump through all the necessary hoops" to get a mortgage will be rewarded with some very competitive rates.

He said: " The biggest challenge for borrowers is meeting lenders' affordability criteria, as property prices continue to rise in many areas while wages fail to keep pace.

"First-time buyers will find it difficult to get themselves in a position to buy unless they have assistance from the Bank of Mum and Dad. This should keep a lid on the market and ensure we don't return to runaway growth."

A Department for Communities and Local Government spokesman said: "Government initiatives have already helped more than 230,000 people to buy since 2010 and we are going even further to deliver 200,000 new starter homes, which will be available at a 20% discount to first-time buyers."

100,000 use Help to Buy schemes

100,000 use Help to Buy schemes

More than 100,000 people have been helped on to or up the housing ladder by the Government's Help to Buy schemes, figures show.

A total of 101,972 homeowners have been helped by the schemes, which allow people to buy a home with a deposit as low as 5%, according to the data unveiled by Housing Minister Brandon Lewis.

The total is made up of people using the equity loan and mortgage guarantee schemes launched in 2013, as well as the Help to Buy: NewBuy scheme which offers 95% mortgages to people buying a new-build home.

The equity loan scheme and NewBuy figures are for England only, while the mortgage guarantee scheme figures cover the whole of the UK.

Four out of five people using Help to Buy have been first-time buyers, the Government said

Full Story

Help to Buy has in the past been accused of helping to pump up house prices.

But the average price of homes bought under Help to Buy is £213,954, which is well below the average UK house price of £271,000, the Government said.

It named Leeds, Birmingham, Wiltshire, County Durham and Bedfordshire as areas where Help to Buy has proved particularly popular.

The Government has previously announced the extension of the equity loan scheme to 2020.

Other plans to help aspiring first-time buyers are also in the pipeline, including Help to Buy Isas which are set to be launched in the autumn through banks and building societies.

Under the new scheme, the Government will boost first-time buyers' savings for a deposit on a home by £50 for every £200 they save, up to a maximum bonus of £3,000. It is estimated that around 285,000 first-time buyers will use the new Help to Buy Isa scheme each year.

Stewart Baseley, executive chairman of the Home Builders Federation said: "Help to Buy continues to drive demand for new homes, and its extension to 2020 is a huge boost. That demand is being met by the house building industry which is increasing output at the highest rate for decades."

Mr Lewis said: "Today's figures clearly show the continuing success of the Help to Buy scheme."

Help to Buy ISA available for first time buyers!

HELP TO BUY ISA AVAILABLE FOR FIRST TIME BUYERS!

In the March 2015 Budget the government announced a new ISA savings scheme to help first time buyers (FTBs) save for a deposit to purchase their first new home.

Full Story

Under this scheme a FTB can save up to £200 a month towards a deposit for their first new home in a Help to Buy ISA account. There is no minimum monthly requirement.

The government will add a bonus of 25% to the FTB’s savings (and any interest earned on those savings) on the purchase of a first home.  The bonus is subject to a maximum of £3,000.  So if you are a FTB and you save £12,000 the government will pay you a bonus of £3,000.

Accounts are limited to one per person rather than per home so joint buyers can each open Help to Buy ISA accounts.

The accounts will operate in the same way as existing ISAs, with interest accruing on a tax free basis, but will include some special features which are summarised in the document produced by the government. 

The Help to Buy ISA accounts will be available from autumn this year and will be available for four years.  Once opened there is no limit on the length of time the ISA is used. 

A FTB can make an initial deposit of £1,000 when opening the account to allow FTBs to start saving before the accounts are introduced.

Full details of the scheme are in the guidance but scheme features include:

  • the saver must be 16 or over and must be a FTB
  • the bonus is available to FTBs purchasing UK properties
  • only one Help to Buy ISA can be opened per person during the lifetime of the scheme (but usual ISA transfer rules will apply)
  • a minimum bonus of £400 per person will be paid
  • a maximum bonus of £3,000 per person will be paid
  • the bonus is tax free and can be claimed at any time but will only be paid on the purchase of the first home
  • the bonus will be available on home purchases of up to £450,000 in London and up to £250,000 outside London
  • the bonus can only be used towards a property that is being used for the FTB’s only residence and cannot be used for buy-to-let purchases
  • the bonus will be calculated on savings plus interest accrued
  • the scheme can be combined with other "Help to Buy" products

HELP TO BUY now available at Wat's Meadow, Gobowen, Shropshire

HELP TO BUY NOW AVAILABLE AT WAT'S MEADOW.

Fletcher Homes are now able to offer the government backed HELP TO BUY shared equity scheme at their development at Wat's Meadow, Gobowen near Oswestry.

Under the scheme qualifying home buyers only need a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage with the remaining 20% provided by way of a government backed second mortgage for up to 25 years.

Full Story

No interest is charged on the government's 20% share during the first 5 years and then a very modest interest rate of 1.75% is charged with increases linked to RPI. The homeowner is free to pay off the loan at any time within the 25 years.

Fletcher Homes Chairman Clive Benfield said "This is a fantastic scheme to assist homebuyers who would otherwise need a much larger deposit and already we have seen a large increase in enquiries from home buyers."

"With home buyers needing only a 75% mortgage the monthly payments will be much lower than for a larger mortgage meaning that buying a brand new home is now within reach of those with a deposit of as little as £7,000"
