The property market and equity release in Cambridgeshire

Despite economic uncertainty in 2020, the property market continued to perform well and it consistently increases in value over time, outperforming other investments. Cambridgeshire is a notoriously expensive place to live and according to Rightmove, in 2020 the biggest number of sales was detached homes, which fetched over £400,000. Even semi-detached and terraced homes had a price tag of over £250,000. At that time, the county had an average selling price of £312,000. The most expensive location in Cambridgeshire is said to be Hemingford Abbots and the most affordable was Wittering.

Cambridge is also considered one of the most sought after areas in the country to buy a home. With its historic city centre, excellent university, and beautiful surrounding green space, it holds much appeal to homeowners. According to one website, the city was listed as one of the ten places outside London where prices have risen more than 70 per cent over a decade.

How do equity release mortgages and lifetime mortgages work in Cambridgeshire?

Equity release enables homeowners over the age of 55 to release money tied up in their property without selling it or moving out. It can be taken in one tax-free lump sum or can be more flexible with regular payments or a drawdown facility so you can access the cash as and when you need to. Our advisers will guide you through the options, so you can make an informed decision about the right product that fits your needs and circumstances.

A lifetime mortgage is a type of equity release plan and the most popular option – the other type of equity release scheme is known as a home reversion scheme. With lifetime mortgages, you are able to continue owning and living in your home but you release some of its value in order to be able to spend it today.

The debt is repaid when the last named person on the equity release dies or moves into long-term residential care.
