Prefabricated Timber Frame Homes for 1st time Buyers

Entering the housing market for the first time can be both exhilarating and daunting. As a first-time buyer in the UK, understanding the latest interest rates and the Bank of England’s base rates is crucial for making informed decisions. This blog aims to provide an informative guide to help you navigate this significant financial milestone as well as the available options to first-time buyers, including prefab timber frame home kits, that may not have been considered.

The current housing market landscape has seen significant fluctuations over recent years. While house prices have generally trended upwards, as of mid-2024, the market is experiencing a period of relative stability.

As of July 2024, the Bank of England base rate stands at 5.00%, reflecting recent efforts to curb inflation and stabilise the economy. The Bank of England base rate is the benchmark for most lenders in the UK. When the base rate rises or falls, mortgage rates typically follow suit.

According to HM Land Registry, in England as of January 2024, the average property in the UK was valued at £299,000. Many banks prefer first-time buyers to have a 10% deposit in 2024. This would mean an amount of £29,900. First-time buyers might be asking, how else could I invest my money into property of my own?
