Since September, the market has been brisk with an increasing supply of second hand and new property for sale. The rate of house price inflation has moderated.
This is largely a function of the tighter lending environment and perhaps an expectation of more robust supply coming on line.
After several years of strong price inflation, the market is pausing for breath. Needless to say, Brexit remains the big unknown which only fuels uncertainty.
One way to combat the continuing surge in rents is to increase the availability of rental properties to the market.
The announcement in the recent budget of a re-introduction of 100% mortgage relief for properties bought as investments is a positive step.
However, more needs to be done from a tax perspective to increase the attractiveness of this sector for individual investors.
Having said that, buying a residential investment property through your pension can increase the tax effectiveness of this asset class.
As we begin 2019, we believe the outlook is for a stable residential property market which will deliver modest price growth and hopefully real progress in addressing the complex issues that are preventing delivery of affordable accommodation for all.
