The price of Barclays shares has dropped significantly over the last five days, as seen on the chart (approximately 5 pounds). However, if we look at the data for 6 months, we can see that the price has maintained reasonably consistent, so on December 14, 2020, the price was 142.36 pounds, and it is currently 181.90 pounds.
Potential UK first-time buyers have been unable to purchase a home due to the coronavirus outbreak. According to a new NerdWallet study, three out of ten potential homebuyers have put their plans to buy their first house on hold due to COVID-19. The survey of 600 Britons who do not presently own a home aims to find out that 24% of those polled plan to buy their first home within the next year. CAVID-19 has caused over a third (30%) of potential first-time buyers to postpone their plans to buy a home, yet 70% of hopeful purchasers are sure that they will buy a home within the next ten years.
Meanwhile, 57% are considering or planning to employ a government-backed mortgage with a 95% loan-to-value ratio. Banks in the United Kingdom have announced a new government-backed plan aimed at assisting first-time buyers and current homeowners in obtaining a mortgage with as little as a 5% deposit. With 95 percent of mortgages, first-time buyers or current homeowners can acquire a mortgage for a home valued up to 600,000 pounds ($846,450) with just a 5% down payment. Based on these factors, we can expect BARC.L shares will rise soon as a result of the new mortgage loan.
