Property market

David Best from Stanley Best Estate Agents says: “The property market in Cookstown and Mid Ulster area remains challenging although steady. The first-time buyer market has slowed considerably, and I feel this bracket has been the most affected by the substantial mortgage rises over the last six months. Buyers are saving for larger deposits, which are required by most lenders, though the larger monthly payments are pricing a lot of these buyers out of the market for now. It’s a difficult time, but when the rates are steady, we hope they will be back to us to find their first home. In our area, those who are purchasing homes for the second or even third time are actively engaging in buying and selling which contributes to the continuous motion in the market. Although they are impacted as well by the larger mortgage repayments, with good equity in their previous property they are very motivated buyers. We feel you can get reasonable value for money once you cross into the higher price bracket in and around Cookstown. We find a lot of clients when relocating, considering the Mid Ulster and Cookstown areas due to their central location.”
