Ross Counsell, director at Good Move, the regulated property buyer, gives his predictions for the UK property market in 2019.
House prices in the UK
We predict that house price growth will stagnate in 2019 due to market uncertainty and the ceiling of affordability being reached in much of the south. The outcome of Brexit could have the most significant impact on prices, with a disorderly ‘no-deal’ scenario likely leading to a fall in prices. However we expect a rise, albeit at a subdued rate, of around 1% should the government form a reasonable exit deal with the EU.
