If you’re thinking of getting onto the property ladder this year, there’s good and bad news.
The good news is that low-deposit mortgages are still readily available, so you might find it a little easier to get a home loan than before. The bad news is that it’s unlikely that house prices will become significantly more affordable.
Experts expect slower growth, but none are forecasting that overall prices will actually fall significantly over the medium or long term.
