Rising house prices have made this process a daunting prospect for many First Time Buyers, but there are a range of mortgage products available in today's market:
What type of Mortgage Should I look for, Fixed or Variable?
Many First Time buyers take out a fixed rate mortgage so they know their monthly payments are stabalised. Tracker rates open you up to much greater repayments if interest rates rise.
What could Go Wrong
If rates increase and the property market falls away, you could find yourself in a negative equity situation. Which means you owe more than the value of the property. This is a big risk factor to seriously think about and discuss with other parties to the mortgage before signing on the dotted line.
Many First Time Buyers purchase their property with a partner, friend or family member and some lenders will allow up to 4 people to be party to the mortgage.
Some First Time Buyers receive financial help from family and some lenders will consider close family members as guarantors.
