First Time Buyer Mortgage Advice
Being a first-time buyer can be both an exciting yet daunting time. Having finally made the decision to take those first steps onto the property ladder, where do you start? There are so many options when buying your first home and you want to make sure you make the right decisions.
With so much information to take in when buying your first home, particularly in this current climate, lenders are far stricter with their lending criteria for first time buyers, you can rely on Asset Harbour to provide a professional service and honest & transparent advice.
As a First Time Buyer what do I need to know?
The first thing you need to know before going out and choosing your dream home, is ‘how much can you borrow?’ This allows you to then know what properties you can and can’t afford. Generally, you can borrow around four to five times your annual salary on a mortgage, but you will be required to pay a deposit.
The deposit you need can vary but generally you’ll be looking at around 10%. There are 5% deposits available but you will need a very good credit rating to get one, bearing in mind that the higher the deposit, the less you have to borrow and the lower your monthly payments.
Once you receive an Agreement in Principle which is a statement from a mortgage lender stating how much they would be prepared to loan you, you can start to look for your new home, although once you have found a suitable property you will still need to complete a full mortgage application.
