Seize the moment: A unique opportunity to benefit from a quieter market?

As we approach the Bank of England’s next meeting on June 20th, there’s growing speculation about potential changes in interest rates. However, given that inflation has not yet met the target—currently at 2.3%, just above the desired 2.1%—there’s uncertainty about whether a rate drop is imminent.

Currently, the average two-year fixed mortgage rate stands at 5.93%, while the average five-year fixed rate is 5.5%, according to Moneyfacts. Even the most competitive five-year fixed rates are over 4.3%, and the lowest two-year fixed rates are above 4.65%. Although we’ve seen a slight easing in mortgage rates recently, the latest figures suggest that any significant downward trend might be delayed.

Market and Political Uncertainty

Adding to the financial uncertainty is the recent announcement of a general election, which introduces another layer of unpredictability. With a full rate cut now not expected until November, this political development could further impact economic conditions and mortgage rates.

However, while the upcoming six weeks may pose some challenges for new sellers entering the market, buyers have a unique opportunity to benefit from a quieter market and potentially strengthen their purchasing power during this brief period.
