Rob & Rob are back again today with another Friday market update for you.
Whilst this week has been a bit of a whirlwind with positives and negatives throughout the media, there were still some headlines The Robs thought needed clearing up.
Apparently, the government has put the housing market on hold.
But surprise, surprise… this isn’t the case.
What they’re actually doing is offering advice on buying and selling a property in the current circumstances.
It’s also been said that banks are putting a stop to mortgage lending.
Again, not quite the full story.
This isn’t down to the fact that the banks have no money or are expecting property prices to plummet like some may think. It’s actually due to the fact that they’re overwhelmed by the amount of people applying for mortgage holidays and they’ve had to move their call centres to working from home.
Plus, they can’t have surveyors going out to value properties which obviously puts a delay on things.
So, as well as proving the scaremongering headlines wrong, here’s what else you can expect to hear on today’s episode:
And to end on a lighter note, whilst there’s a lot of negativity going around, there’s also a huge sense of community and togetherness which is a lot stronger than anything that could ever break us.
