Comment: Barratt releases heartening news for the property market


David Smith (pictured), Senior Partner, property consultancy Carter Jonas, on the Barratt Interim Management Statement released this morning (Tuesday, 17 November).

Positive news from the new build sector is more encouraging than positive news from the secondary market. It’s arguably the most powerful gauge of where the market is at.

For net private reservation rates per site to be 34% up on last year is a sign of how the market has improved despite ongoing issues in the broader economy. It is a very positive statement for the property market as a whole.

Barratt rightly points out, of course, that activity levels will remain pegged to the availability of mortgage finance, which still remains difficult to secure at higher LTVs. But overall, this is heartening news for the property market.
