How to prevent a future crash of the housing market affecting you.
As the need for a future crash appears in many news headlines, we can’t help but be concerned. The reality is, we must keep an eye on how our areas are doing and only become concerned if it is truly necessary. The first reason as to why we should be aware of any changes is due to drastic changes. It can range from everything running super well to things plummeting. We don’t want to be left with a property we are struggling to sell.
Here are a few things you could do:
-Making sure you choose the right home in the right place its very important for the future value of the home for when you decide to sell it or buy it. Prior to purchasing a property, it must also be up to date with any development it needs. In this way, the chance of structural problems will be reduced, etc.
-Making sure you can pay for your residence. If it’s going to be a place where you’re planning to reside for a while before you rent it turns into more than an investment. Prioritise payments to increase/keep the value of the home to a decent price and decrease stress on your part. Keep a dedicated savings account for your mortgage, that way you will be already one step ahead on payments. Also make sure you regularly check bank statements and consult with your accountant if needed, since your assets could end up being vulnerable if a future crisis occurs.
-Invest towards the private rented sector once its established. Though it is known as the “wild west” of the housing market, it can assist tenants with their loan system to cope with the mounting arrears crisis without causing mass evictions in the future. Without improvement in the private rental sector, itmakes it difficult for people to establish roots and for families to plan for schooling. It also means an extra cost for renters who must arrange a move.
To save your properties in the future, make sure you have a separate savings account to put money away for your mortgage payments, regularly keep a close eye on your statements and be smart about what you invest on. Keep in mind that the market is in constant change.
