Belvoir Corby managing director Bobby Singh Braich said: “The housing market has been volatile in recent years as we navigated the unprecedented waters of the pandemic. House prices have risen in Corby by almost a third, making getting on the property ladder a pipedream for some.
“Across the country, 2023 will see millions of homes facing financial difficulty and I anticipate this will mean the housing market will slow as buyers – and builders – become hesitant at making large financial investment.
“Add to that the recent dramatic hike in mortgage rates and the end of the Help To Buy scheme and it is likely that we will see the previous property boom begin to slow down in the coming months.
“But rather than house prices drop, I believe they are more likely to plateau momentarily, as demand is still there. It is a sellers’ market, as supply remains low.”
