Advantages of spread betting on house prices
Spread betting on house prices gives you exposure to fluctuations in the housing market, with several advantages compared to purchasing property directly:
- No red tape, expenses or delays
- No stamp duty
- No capital gains tax
- No need to put up the full value
How do you measure house price bets?
Our bets are based on the Halifax House Price Index, the premier and most widely publicised indicator of the UK housing market. So, whether you want to profit from predicted market shifts or hedge against the value of property you already own, you can back your judgement against nationally recognised housing figures.
We offer bets on the average house price for the UK as a whole, with prices offered on the nearest four quarters. Our prices are given in points per £1000. You simply 'buy' if you think the average price is set to rise or 'sell' if you think it will fall. To learn more take a look at our house prices example.
Our introduction programme for new clients gives you two weeks of reduced minimum bet sizes, so you can deal in smaller sizes as you build up your confidence. You'll also receive our comprehensive spread betting guide, to help you improve your dealing knowledge.
Spread bets are leveraged products. Spread betting may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
