Hi there,

It’s fair to say it’s been a turbulent month here in the UK. The decision to leave the European Union has led to a great deal of speculation about many things. One thing we have been keen to keep our eye on is what will happen to house prices and equity release interest rates following Brexit.

You may have read that there have been forecasts of a fall in house prices. As a homeowner this may all be quite daunting and overwhelming when you’re trying to plan for your future retirement.

Here, Equity Release Supermarket aim to reflect on this forecast and try to understand what this might mean to your retirement plans over the coming years.

What should you believe?

Now that we have decided to leave the European Union, there is a great deal of speculation and uncertainty about the future of our economy.

The real truth is that nobody really knows what will happen over the longer term. We can only really reflect on what has happened to date.

UK homeowners saw the average house price increase by 8.1% in the year to May 2016, continuing the strong growth seen since the end of 2013*. Lifetime mortgage interest rates are the lowest we have ever seen and right now we can offer variable interest rates from a low as 2.96% MER and fixed interest rates starting at 4.39% MER.

If you’re planning for the future and are considering equity release as an option, now could be the ideal time to take advantage of average house price increases before any potential downside. Low interest rates also mean that there has never been a better time to unlock the cash in your home through a lifetime mortgage.
