Property growth and equity release in Northamptonshire: What you need to know

House prices have always grown and whilst there is volatility in the market, there has historically been an upwards trajectory. When anyone buys their first home, they can be comfortable in the knowledge that it will be a long-term investment and the value is likely to increase over time.

According to Rightmove in 2020 the majority of properties that were sold across the county were detached homes that received an average of £360,000. The county average was £257,000. The most expensive area in Northamptonshire was Guilsborough. House prices across the whole of the area are said to have increased more than £150,000 over the last 25 years. The average house price is now five times higher than it was in 1995.

Average prices in Northampton stand at £273,000. It is believed that further price growth will occur with regeneration plans afoot. If you are based in Northampton or the wider parts of Northamptonshire and you are wondering whether equity release is a good option, our experts will be delighted to talk with you about your options.

Our Northamptonshire equity release mortgage advisors can search from hundreds of lifetime mortgages

There are two main types of equity release: Lifetime mortgages and home reversion schemes. With a lifetime mortgage, you do not need to repay the money you release from a property until the last named homeowner moves into residential care or you pass away. The interest rate usually remains fixed for the duration of the mortgage and it will run until you move out or die. The property will remain in your name and you will have the right to live there for as long as you wish. Lifetime mortgage plans are very flexible and there are different ways you can receive the capital – some people opt for a lump sum, whilst others receive regular payments from a ‘drawdown’ facility. You may wish to service the interest monthly so it does not roll up alongside the original loan but you do not have to do this.

We are FCA-regulated and we are also members of the Equity Release Council, which is the industry body that represents the equity release sector and promotes high standards of conduct and practice. This includes only advising plans that carry a ‘no negative equity guarantee’, which means that you will never owe more than the value of your home. If you wish to move home, subject to meeting certain terms and conditions, you can  usually transfer the lifetime mortgage to the new property.
