First Time Buyer Mortgage Advice

The steady increase in the cost of renting accommodation over recent years is attracting many people to consider purchasing a property for the first time. For first time buyers, mortgage hunting can be stressful and confusing particularly with the stringent requirements of the lenders nowadays.

With Search Mortgage Solutions you will talk to a mortgage expert who can review your eligibility for the many different schemes designed to help you with the first difficult step to becoming a home owner. Terminology such as shared equity, affordability, credit profile, lending criteria, fixed rates, trackers, etc, are confusing for most first time buyers and professional help is strongly advisable.

Undoubtedly, the internet is a great source of information on all types of mortgages but to try to navigate through the myriad options without expert advice and assistance is really daunting and a potentially dangerous task.
