Time Heals All Wounds

Aug 23, 2008
The current mortgage and loan market has undergone a period of turmoil recently that has been felt all around the world. The full damage from the fallout from the turmoil has yet to be assessed and this is partly because the pattern of behaviour in the lending market is somewhat different to what it should be.

Home owners who are hoping to refinance their properties in the near future have been waiting patiently for the mortgage market to finish correcting itself so some appropriate products will be available for use. This is particularly the case for adverse credit remortgages which have all but disappeared from the home loan market. However the market is acting strangely and is not repeating the patterns of behaviour conducted in the past when the property market experiences a slowdown.

After an initial phase of falling property prices and restrictive mortgage lending it is customary for interest rates to fall and home loan products to become more widely available again. The lower price of home finance would spark an upturn in the property market as existing home owners would be able to find appropriate products to remortgage their homes with and first time buyers would be able to afford to take a first step onto the property ladder.

However interest rates are not falling and there is no spark setting off a recovery in the mortgage and property markets. This has left many home owners with poor credit histories unable to find adverse credit remortgages with which to refinance their homes. Even home owners with good credit have been turned away by lenders who were previously scrambling for their business. The home loan market has been brought to a standstill and the stagnant cost of finance is to blame.

There are many factors which influence interest rates. One of the main factors in the UK is the Bank of England's use of the base rate to keep inflation in check. Prices of many consumer good have been rising in recent years which have been pushing inflation above the maximum target. So despite the fact that the mortgage market could use a boost from lower interest rates the Bank of England is being forced to at least keep them steady because of the rising cost of living from consumer products.

This leaves many home owners scratching their heads, wondering when the home loan market is going to loosen up and begin to offer them an appropriate product with which they can remortgage their home. Some analysts believe that time itself will be the most likely saviour of home owners. It is unlikely that any single macroeconomic factor is going to rescue the mortgage market. Rather it is more likely that the market will sort itself out as many different interacting factors become more favourable to home owners.

The simple fact is that lenders want to lend money and this rings true for adverse credit mortgages as well. Lenders are not holding onto their money for any reason other than fear. They are likely to begin loosening their rules again once the fear leaves the market.
