Helping you find
your first mortgage

Mortgages and
First Time Buyers

The thought of buying a house for the first can be a daunting experience, looking for your perfect home, saving for a deposit, organizing a solicitor and that is just the start of it.

Generally house prices are rising and some lenders are tightening up their lending criteria which means buying your first home is no easy matter. As a first-time buyer, there are probably hundreds of mortgage deals available for you to choose from.

The mortgage market can be very confusing for both first time property buyers and experienced home movers alike and that’s one of the main reasons why first time buyers may seek out the help and support from a qualified mortgage advisor who understands how stressful it can all be.
If you are about to buy your first home, there are probably many questions that you would like to be answered:

  • How do I go about getting a mortgage?
  • Should I use a broker or go it alone?
  • What type of mortgage is best for me?
  • Should I go for a fixed rate or variable rate interest?
  • How much can I afford to borrow?

Our free First Time Buyer Guide, which can be downloaded below, has been produced to help you answer these questions and hopefully guide you through the mortgage and process.
