The British Bankers’ Association recently reported that December 2015 saw gross mortgage borrowing reach £12.4 billion, a figure 24% higher than in December 2014. In comparison to the year before, mortgage approvals were also up by 24%.
These figures go to show that despite increasing house prices, various other factors make it a great time to get a new mortgage, whatever type of buyer you are.
