Our house price historical data set is constructed using a combination of the leading house-prices indices to provide a long and robust time series. The forecast model takes into account a range of economic factors including labour market conditions and incomes.

With the housing market and mortgage lending so heavily interlinked, our forecasts and data also look at secured lending credit conditions, considering the impact of forecast changes in Bank base rates on mortgage fixed and variable interest rates.

The FCA Mortgage Market Review, which came into force in April 2014, firmly focusses new lending decisions on the affordability of the borrower. Therefore, the data sets and report also examine how household finances and debt burden, in conjunction with house prices, might affect the trends in new mortgages being approved.

What can you use this forecast for?

The forecasts can be used across a wide range of areas, from informing future board level strategy to ‘indexing forward’ property values – for example, the likely value of a property at the end of a mortgage term and therefore the equity.

They give an early indication of future growth or decline in the housing market and as such form an invaluable input into resource and operational planning.

The forecasts can also be used for modelling, analysis and decision-making across areas including:

  • Setting better future strategy, whether you’re looking at macro-level decision-making, or local and regional budgets and targets
  • Stress testing your housing market portfolio or mortgage books
  • Providing market context for management information and board-level reports
  • Understanding the impact that government policy changes could have on the housing market, for you and your business
  • Informing individual property valuations by estate agents or as useful context in real estate sales brochures
  • Predicting demand for housing within specific areas and the type of housing likely to be needed, allowing developers and local government to plan new housing construction
