Rightmove has predicted a 2 per cent property price rise (UK) for properties coming to the market in 2020 as the majority government provides home movers with certainty for an active spring moving season.
Spring is often the best time of year to sell a property. However, because many people are aware of this, they often find themselves waiting until then before putting their house on the market. But if you choose to wait, you could be missing out on some festive sales advantages when putting your house on the market over the Christmas season!
When applying for a mortgage, credit score required for a mortgage in the UK, is not specific. This is because there isn’t just one credit score. The lender you approach will calculate your mortgage for you so that they can determine if you are a worthy risk. They want to know that you can be trusted and are likely to pay back the mortgage each month. A higher score usually indicates that you come with less risk. As a result, the more points you score, the better the chance of being accepted for a mortgage, and with better rates.
