According to the Abbey National falling house prices may be an interesting opportunity for some homeowners who can see the chance to get a bigger property at a smaller price.
The figures held by Abbey National indicate somewhere in the region of 2 million homeowners are considering a move as house prices drop. Around 1.2 million of these people are hoping to trade up to a larger house, feeling they will get a relative bargain.
As a spokesman for Abbey National Mortgages reaffirmed, a market where house prices are falling is not always bad news. It creates opportunities and bargains that some people can make the most of.
