HOW MUCH OF A DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED?
It is possible to obtain a mortgage with a deposit of as little as 5%. In general, 10% and occasionally 15% are more common. You should keep in mind that lenders prefer borrowers who have a higher deposit due to the lower risk, resulting in a better deal and a better interest rate.
For those with lower deposits, there are many schemes and products available to help you. Let us assist you in determining which options are available to you.
HOW MUCH YOU CAN BORROW?
In determining a loan amount, lenders use an income multiple. It might be four times your income or it could even be four and a half times.
As well as your expenditures, any existing credit obligations, and whether you have any dependents, they would also take these factors into consideration.
In terms of affordability, it is the same regardless of whether you are a first-time buyer or not. Fortunately, there is a lender who has released enhanced affordability criteria specifically for first time buyers and is offering up to five times your income as a down payment.
