What will it take to kickstart the UK property market?

The UK property market is still under serious pressure this evening despite a number of false dawns over the last few weeks and months. With very little follow-through from recent hopeful signs of recovery it seems almost inevitable that the sector will move lower before finally recovering. But what will it take to kickstart the UK property market?

One of the main ingredients for a recovery in the UK property market is confidence, as this is what will make buyers return and this is what will increase transaction numbers. If a potential buyer knows that the price of a property is unlikely to fall significantly over the short term they are more likely to follow through with their buying plans. If however the short-term course of the UK economy is unknown with a possible further downward lurch then no buyer is likely to step forward.

Liquidity in the mortgage market, realistic property prices and a stable employment market are also vital but confidence is the foundation of any recovery in the future. Without confidence any short-term bounce would be relatively fragile and likely to weaken and disappear until significant confidence does return.
