Is 2024 a good time to be a first-time buyer?

In some senses, 2024 could be a good time to be a first-time buyer.

If sellers continue to find it hard to find buyers and homes continue sitting on the market for longer, some sellers may feel increasingly desperate and more willing to consider lower offers.

In fact, this already appears to be happening. Last month, Zoopla reported that one in four sales are being agreed at 10 per cent or more below the asking price.

It's also worth remembering the only alternative for many aspiring first-time buyers is to remain in an under-supplied lettings market, paying ever-higher monthly rents.

Buying may still be the best option for those that can afford to.

For home movers, what house prices are doing shouldn't necessarily matter, if they are selling and buying at the same time.

In fact, for anyone upsizing to a more expensive home, falling house prices can even work in their favour.
