Why release equity in Bristol?

Whilst the property market always fluctuates the general trend has always been upwards. If you are a homeowner who has lived in Bristol for a decade or even longer; chances are your property is now worth far more than when you bought it. In 2020, Rightmove said that homeowners in Bristol are some of the housing market’s “biggest winners” over the past ten years. With great schools, two leading universities, plenty of green spaces, many restaurants, and vibrant culture, demand for property in the area has always been high, leading to these big increases in house prices.

According to figures in 2020, the average price for a property in Bristol is around £320,000, with the most common type of property being terraced homes. The average Bristol home had risen in value over £100,000 in the last ten years and in some places, such as Easton, they had increased a huge 120 per cent over the decade. Of course, there are many larger properties and in 2020, estate agent Knight Frank said that the large Georgian houses in Clifton near the suspension bridge have increased in value by 66 per cent over the decade and many are now worth around £2million.

If you live and are settled in Bristol and do not want to downsize but wish to enjoy a more comfortable retirement, then equity release could be right for you. We are always happy to come and meet with you are your home to get to know more about your circumstances and to discuss the available options.

Equity release in Bristol: What could it offer you?

Equity release means releasing some of the value of a property you own as finance whilst continuing to live there. There are a number of reasons why people might wish to do this, including:

  • If you own your home and are retired, you may wish to supplement your pension to meet your living costs and to release the money tied up in your property so you can enjoy a better quality of life.
  • You may wish to fund a holiday, go travelling or carry out long-waited home improvements, which could boost the value of your property.
  • If you own your home but cannot meet the cost of funding a wedding or helping children with higher education costs or getting on the property ladder, equity release allows you to do this

Bristol equity release schemes: Types of schemes

Equity release schemes are divided into lifetime mortgages and home reversion schemes.

Lifetime mortgages are the most popular choice and involve borrowing part of the value of your home without the requirement to make repayments on the loan during your lifetime. The lender will charge compound interest at a declared rate of interest on the loan. When you eventually move out of the property or die, the lender will be repaid the original sum plus interest by your estate.

As members of the ERC, our products offer a no negative equity guarantee, which ensures that you can never pass on debt to your estate.

Plans are available from the age of 55 and the cash is tax free and can be spent as you wish. Lifetime mortgage plans can allow you to protect a percentage of your property value so your family could inherit a part of the value of the property. Read our blog on: How much does equity release cost?
