Buying your first home is a pretty momentous occasion. But as exciting as this big step is, making such an important investment – and commitment – can be daunting, too.
Maybe you’ve already seen your perfect property, or you’ve just started thinking about buying your first home – wherever you are in the process, discovering how much you can borrow can be a real game changer.
The sooner you find out how much you can spend, the sooner you can make an offer on your dream home and begin the negotiations.
What Are The First Steps To Getting A Mortgage For First Time Buyers?
You can get an instant estimated borrowing amount from providing some basic information such as your deposit amount, annual income, debt information and spending. It’s important to note that whilst this is a good indicator, the mortgage product you finally select will ultimately decide how much you can borrow.
If you are looking to take the next steps, then we will help you organise an Agreement in Principle (AIP) which gives you an indication of how much a lender could be willing to offer you based on the information you have provided. Most estate agents will need to see this in order to ensure that you are in fact a serious buyer, before they can proceed with your property search.
Securing The Best Mortgage Deal For You
At Bower, we know that a mortgage is a huge financial commitment and that for first time buyers it can be especially daunting. Once you have found a property you want to buy then our knowledgeable and experienced advisors are on hand to help find you the best mortgage deals for first time buyers.
There are thousands of mortgages out there and many banks and building societies offer special deals and incentives to first time buyers in order to try and get them on board. This can include things such as cash back which can then be used to reduce the amount of interest that would accumulate, lower fees or even a contribution towards your legal costs. With so many different types and deals available, it can be confusing for first time buyers to cut through the jargon and choose the right lender to go with.
Our mortgage experts will conduct a comprehensive search of various types of mortgages on your behalf and navigate through them in order to find the most suitable and competitive mortgage deals for your individual circumstances.
