PRWEB UK) 9 January 2012
Whathouse.co.uk gives an overview of the market from 2011 and and interviews a number of UK housebuilders to get opinion for the UK new home housing market in 2012. Though housebuilders and housing associations continue to offer a fantastic range of new apartments and new houses for sale around the country, many prospective buyers found it tough to make a move in 2011, particularly in light of very tough lending criteria from mortgage buyers With the Government stepping in with schemes such as its more recent announcement that it will underwrite some 95% mortgages to allow creditworthy buyers to access more affordable loans, there is a good chance that thousands of buyers will now find it easier to realise their dream of a new home in 2012 than last year. We spoke to a number of housebuilders around the country to get their take on how they see the new homes market performing in 2012 and what new homes buyers might expect to find in the coming year.
Bob Weston, Weston Homes chairman and chief executive, has never been a man to mince his words: “I would say that we are in tougher times for the housebuilding industry now than we were in 2008, 2009 and 2010 combined.”
Despite this, he is confident that homebuyers can expect a great portfolio of new homes from his company over the coming 12 months: “Overall, 2011 has been another very successful year for us and we have continued to launch a number of big, key developments throughout the country. Next year, we have a number of new developments and phase launches planned across Greater London, the Home Counties and Cambridge and we will continue to build high quality, good value homes where people want to live.”
