Time will tell
While confidence overall seems to be steady soon after the vote, some of you seem to be a little more wary. We found that 31% of you believed that house prices might fall in the next 12 months as we start to become a little clearer about what Brexit means for the UK.
This wariness also seems to extend into home insurance, as 22% of you believe that your premium might rise because of the result. A survey we conducted before the vote showed that this uncertainty was entrenched during the campaigns as almost three quarters (73%) of you believed that neither the ‘Remain’ nor ‘Leave’ campaigns had explained the impact on personal finances of leaving the EU. It’s hoped that these concerns will soon be put to rest.
These findings are based on an independent survey, conducted by Onepoll on behalf of comparethemarket.com. We surveyed 1,000 UK adults that are either in the process of buying or selling a home (in early stages of viewing homes / getting their home valued to put on the market, or later). The poll was undertaken between 18th July and 1st August 2016.
