Hi my name is Tim Giles, as you know I am one of the leading estate agents in Woodbridge, I am also a mortgage and protection adviser!
I specialise in remortgages and house purchases, however of course I can help with all your mortgage requirements.
Wow what a year 2022 was!! The year started with a bang! too many buyers and not enough properties was the theme of the 1st quarter, it was important to get your mortgage approved and ready in place – or estate agents were not letting you view properties. It was busy, busy, busy..
Moving onto the 2nd quarter saw a lot of the same, but the fear started setting in with talk about interest rates rising, which only made the situation worse, the panic buying increased as the rush to find a home and secure a mortgage before interest rates went up.
Then came the 3rd quarter – “Interest Rate Rises” the head line hit every news paper and month after month the interest rate went higher and higher, the market stopped dead in its tracks, the panic was over, back to normality all be it with a slightly higher interest rate..
However then came the 4th quarter and what did we see then, yes, as they say what goes up must come down.. and the interest rates being charged by banks started falling and weak after week another bank announced they were reducing their rates. However just before Christmas there was another Bank of England Base Rate hike – let’s see what effect this has on the markets in the coming weeks, but for now it is business as usual..
