October Newsletter

J.P & Brimelow first opened for business in Didsbury in February 1998. The original plan, scribbled on the back of a beer mat in a pub!, was simplistic in a view of taking high calibre staff coupled with leading edge technology and exceptional local knowledge to provide a professional, courteous and knowledgeable operation.

Now in 2013, with three market leading, centrally located sales offices in Chorlton, Didsbury and Withington we remain committed to those ideals and true to our original idea’s with Nick running the Didsbury office, John running the Withington office and myself running the Chorlton office.

Kind regards

Households who buy are 10% better off a year than tenants

Households are £875, or 10%, a year better off buying instead of renting – provided they can raise the deposit, says the Halifax.

The figures underline major changes in the market. Five years ago, the same Halifax research found it was almost £900 a year cheaper to rent than to buy. The difference since 2008 has been made possible by lower mortgage rates and higher rents.

There are signs of increasing market activity, with the number of home buyers up 3% compared to the same period – the first half of the year – in 2012. This is despite the size of the average deposit at £40,628, up from £28,893 a year earlier.

These are the basic steps to becoming a home owner in England, Wales or Northern Ireland.

Buying a house is a massive investment and getting it just slightly wrong can be costly. Unless you have big savings, chances are you're going to have to get a mortgage.

Don't be confused by the term, a mortgage is just a loan for buying a house.
