Read below to learn why there are many reasons why now’s a great time to make your move...
Competitive mortgage rates
With lenders competing in the marketplace, mortgage rates remain competitive.
- Less expensive borrowing costs mean that lenders are able to offer lower rate mortgages.
- And, if you fix your mortgage repayments you’ve got the added reassurance of knowing what your repayments will be.
Take at look at our handy Home Buying Guide for help navigating the home-buying process.
Property values have been going up
The demand for property in the UK continues to outstrip supply. The average house in Britain will be worth £220,000 this year - up £9,000 on 20162 - which, combined with the low cost of borrowing, could make buying an additional property not only more affordable, but also a great investment for the future.
There’s more choice of mortgages
In recent years, many more mortgages have come onto the market for buyers with smaller deposits. This has made it easier for people to buy the home they’ve always wanted. With competition between lenders still fierce and interest rates remaining low, this trend seems set to continue. We’ve created a handy step-by-step to prepare for your mortgage application.
We can get you moving with a range of different schemes
Help to Buy
Thanks to the UK Government’s established Help to Buy scheme, homeowners and first-time buyers can buy a home up to the value of £600,000 with just a 5% deposit.
Help to Buy makes it easier to move up the property ladder without having to save a large deposit. And because the Government loan is interest-free for five years, you’ll save on repayment costs during the early years of your mortgage, making your family home more affordable.
