Tell us: how have you been affected by reduced UK property prices and rising mortgage rates?

We’re keen to hear how house price reductions and rising mortgage interest rates have affected home owners and prospective buyers

The average UK house price fell for the fourth month in a row in December, according to Halifax, and demand for mortgages has collapsed to its lowest level since the 2020 national lockdown as potential homebuyers are deterred by rising interest rates.

We’d like to hear from people in the UK how their plans – to buy, sell, renovate or in any other way – have been affected by reduced house prices recently.

Whether you’re a homeowner and had to reduce the price of your home, a buyer who was able to snap up a home at a lower price, a prospective first-time buyer hoping for further reductions or a homeowner whose moving or renovation plans have been affected by downward pressures on house prices, we’d like to hear from you.
