    Party politics failing to stall market growth

    Julia Green, branch manager for Barnard Marcus in Sutton explains why the elec-

    tion wont dampen our love affair with home ownership.

    Politics certainly play a key role in the state of the housing market, both in terms of

    legislation and the confidence that politicians instil in buyers and sellers. The up-

    coming General Election is creating much excitement and anticipation across the

    UK and Sutton is no exception. But contrary to the belief that Mays Election is set

    to stall housing market recovery, we at Barnard Marcus are seeing a marked im-

    provement in conditions as the year goes on.

    Indeed, in the first three months of 2010, Barnard Marcus as part of the Sequence

    national network of estate agents, recorded a seven per cent increase in would-be

    buyers registering an interest to move home, a 25 per cent increase in homes com-

    ing onto the market and a 70 per cent increase in the number of first-time buyers

    looking to get on the property ladder in 2010. These figures show very clearly that

    the housing market is anything but stalling. The pre-election jitters so widely docu-

    mented are certainly not having an impact in and around Sutton.

    Good news and growth

    There are a number of reasons why the housing market is doing well despite a con-

    tinued degree of uncertainly created by the election.

    Greater availability of mortgage finance has been instrumental to housing market

    recovery. We at Barnard Marcus have seen a six per cent increase in the volume of

    mortgage applications and, of those applications, the value of the loan was up 17 per

    cent. Lending criteria is still fairly stringent but we have certainly turned a corner in

    the mortgage market and banks and building societies are lending again.

    The chancellors recent decision to offer Stamp Duty relief for first-time buyers on

    properties up 250,000 will also help stimulate the local housing market from the

    bottom up. It is also likely the new threshold will prompt those upsizing to get their

    properties on the market as soon as possible. There is likely to be an influx of first-

    time buyers entering the market so people with a property under 250,000 who are

    looking to upsize would be wise to take advantage of increased demand for their

    property.

    And finally, we should also not underestimate the continued British love affair with

    home ownership. Pent up demand to move last year is starting to generate activity

    in the local housing market in Sutton. Despite elections and recessions, we still want

    the security and comfort of our own home.
