Interest rates have been cut to 0.25% in a bid to shore up the economy amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. This is the first time since the financial crisis that the Bank of England has announced an emergency move.
Low interest rates may well help cushion the housing market in the months ahead. Over 70% of homes are purchased with a mortgage.
According to data from the Bank of England, activity in the mortgage market is currently at a four-year high and mortgage rates are increasingly competitive on the high street.
In 2008, interest rates were cut for six consecutive months, falling from 5% in September 2008 to 0.5% in March 2009. Low interest rates helped the property market rebound throughout 2009.

Sanderson James have added a property to the market today that I think would be an ideal buy to let investment. The property is a Two-bedroom mid terrace in Gorton, close to Debdale Park and the Reddish Boarder. It has come to the market with a guide price of £100,000.
The property appears to be in good condition with a modern feel throughout. The property is of interest as it has two good sized bedrooms, also a utility space to the rear of the property which is always a bonus. The bathroom and kitchen would benefit from an update, but not in bad condition.
This property in its current condition would receive the expected rent between £600-£625pcm.
Give me a call to talk further; 0161 474 8668.

A brilliant buy to let opportunity has come to our attention on Alpine Road in Stockport, SK1. This two bed, two reception terraced property is on the market for just £110,000!
It is in need of some refurbishment, having previously been adapted for disabled living. However, even with these works and other cosmetic updating costs factored in, we estimate a good return with a yield of over 6% as the property would rent for between £625- £650 per month depending on its condition.
