Why property prices should continue to climb


Why property prices should continue to climb

CoreLogic has just reported that national dwelling prices rose by 2.3 per cent in May. That’s an annualised rate of more than 28 per cent. And with lenders continuing to provide cheap and easy access to credit, and investors showing lots of interest, I don’t see the property market cooling off any time soon.

Here at Montgomery, we’ve always kept a close eye on the property market. By now you should know we believe access to credit ultimately determines short and medium-term property prices. On that front lending data has been strong for some time and housing credit has accelerated. Unsurprisingly, as we have previously predicted, house prices have risen.
