End of help to buy

What are your thoughts on the end of help to buy in 2023? Do you think it’ll affect house builder stocks like taylor wimpey or barratt?

Apparently 200k+ houses have been bought with help to buy since it started.

Personally I don’t think it’ll have much of effect if any. There won’t be a replacement to Help to buy but there are already LISAs set up to help people with their first deposit which seems a better offer anyway.

Yes. The main beneficiaries of the scheme have been the house builders. They price of new builds will have to fall when the support is taken away, and that will massively hit profit per new build. Stock price will suffer unless this is already built in.
