Often those looking at purchasing a long-term Family home have spent a large amount of time searching for the perfect property, so the last thing you need is to then be held back and delayed by the mortgage arrangements.
If it is a high demand area, especially within the catchment area of a desirable school, then speed can often be of the essence.
As far as the mortgage is concerned, purchasing a property as expectant parents or with a young family has enough stresses and strains, so a smooth transaction is highly desirable.
Of course there are also the usual questions, such as the type of loan you should go for — fixed or tracker, for example — but in the current market lenders are far stricter with their lending criteria. Because of this, the knowledge and contacts of a professional mortgage broker such as Coreco can be the difference between a costly mortgage and a competitive one.
When applying for a joint residential mortgage, it’s vital to not only get a competitive interest rate but also to find a product that suits your lifestyle and needs.
Things To Consider
- How much can we borrow?
- How much deposit do we have?
- How are we going to pay the loan back?
- Do we want the security of fixed monthly payments or something more flexible?
- Can we keep our existing property and let it out?
- What happens if one of us takes time off work?
- How much will we need to pay in fees?
- Can the mortgage lender move quickly enough to secure the property?
- How do we protect our home and family?
Luckily, help is at hand. That is where obtaining professional advice and a hand to hold throughout the whole process can address all of these questions and more, as well as ensuring that that any deadlines to secure the property are met.
