UK Residential Real Estate Market Report 2022
Anatomy of a market
Over the last four years, we’ve seen a never-ending stream of macro and global geopolitical headwinds – Brexit, Covid, and a war in Ukraine. As we head into the final quarter of 2022, soaring inflation, rate hikes from the Bank of England, and announcements of large unfunded fiscal stimulus plans from a new government are causing renewed gyrations in financial markets.
One thing that is clear – UK house builders facing an uncertain macro environment, rising build costs, the end of Help to Buy, and an increasingly hostile planning system need the support of strong funding partners now more than ever.
Hilltop’s updated Residential Real Estate Market Report looks at the condition of the market as we enter the final quarter of the year and an uncertain economic future. It looks at both the sales and rentals market and suggests what the key themes could be for the year ahead.
