Untapped potential in the latest house building figures says Aldermore

Commenting on the latest DCLG figures on house building released today, Simon Knowles, Head of Property Development at Aldermore said:

“The eight per cent increase in house completions in Q4 2014 compared to Q4 2013 is an encouraging figure. With annual housing starts up by 10 per cent in 2014 compared with 2013, the construction industry is picking up after a tough few years since the financial crash.

“There is still a great deal of untapped potential in the house building market, with skills shortages and lower lending to smaller developers dampening construction levels. It is more important than ever that house building keeps pace with demand, as this will increase affordability and ensure that more people can get onto the housing ladder.”
