First Time buyers, Getting on to the property ladder
Home Movers are often in two minds whether to move or not (e.g. “I like this house but I’d like an extra bedroom or a conservatory or a larger garden). First Time Buyers if you ask them, simply, would like to get on the property ladder one day. As such, they are often undeterred by external factors such as ongoing political events. Whilst the housing market can suffer peaks and troughs, this hardly ever stops people want to get onto the property ladder. Buying a home is a long-term investment, over time house prices can fluctuate and whilst it on occasions house prices can drop value, history suggests that when that does occur the prices go back up in the long run.
Buying a home. Is it always better than renting?
Not necessarily. We will often encourage young people to rent when they first move out of home, especially if they are a couple. Whilst paying rent obviously makes it harder to save for a deposit, renting first allows you to get used to living together, managing finances, paying bills etc. It is a good idea to get used to living in your own home and getting used to what it actually means and to see that you can live with each other! Getting out of a mortgage can be difficult and sometimes expensive so you have to be as certain as you can be that things are going to work out ok.
5% deposit mortgages
95% mortgages are more readily available now than for several years, so if you are maybe halfway having the 5% deposit saved it’s worth trying to get a Mortgage Agreement in Principle on your mortgage ready and in place to check that you will be eligible for a mortgage when the time comes.
