Conservatives win 2015 election

The Conservatives have reached their goal in winning power for the next 5 years in the general election 2015. No one really expected this,' says Dominic Agace, chief executive officer of Winkworth estate agents.'Now that the result is known, people will be putting their house on the market.''We are especially pleased that the prospect of an increased mansion tax under Labour has been avoided, as well as the idea of increased rent controls and obligatory three-year tenancies. All of which would have put pressure on the private rented sector, and served to put off investors.' 'What people don't take into account is the fact that overseas investors are extremely important both to the property market and to the economy. They spend a huge amount of cash in buying UK services.' Dominic Agace continued to state 'Now that the election is out of the way, though, I do think the Tories need to ensure that more houses get built. I would like to see them making moves to get homes built on brownfield sites that they have identified.' The Conservatives have not only promised to build 100,000 new homes with 20% discount for first time buyers under 40, but are also implementing help to buy ISAs with the government adding 25% of the amount saved up to the value of £300,000 for first time buyers. 'Expect increased transactions', says Dominic Agace.
