The end of the year saw an eight per cent uptick in mortgage approvals, which is below the long term average but an 18% improvement on the start of 2023.

Belvoir Corby managing director Bobby Singh Braich said: “While we have certainly seen a boom in recent years, the housing market is starting to steady. For the first time in a long time, average house prices in the town have seen a slight downturn and it is good to see that mortgage approvals have improved in the last year.

“Getting on the property ladder is becoming less of a dream and more of a potential reality for some, and with the fantastic new builds that have gone up in the town over the past few years, even with the slow down, there is still plenty of choice out there for house hunters.”
