Mortgages for First Time Buyers in Winchester

Many First Time Buyers may require a high loan-to-value (LTV) mortgage and often these types of mortgages can have higher than average financing charges and rates of interest - so make sure you talk with a local trusted mortgage broker such as The Mortgage Hut to ensure you get the most suitable deal! Contact the Mortgage Hut, Winchester to arrange an initial discussion.

First Time Buyers - the right deals?

With many deals and mortgage options to choose from, selecting the most suitable first time buyer mortgage can be a bit daunting. As a first time buyer you can take advantage of various money-saving opportunities such as bonuses, rewards/money back and fixed rates for a range of periods - depending on the lender and current availability.

Our aim is to find the right first time buyer mortgage products and rates that best suit your requirements. Our service can find you the very best mortgages from the a wide range of lenders.

Which type of Mortgage for a First Time buyer?

As a first time buyer, you will undoubtedly have a number of questions about ways to get a mortgage and which type of mortgage and insurance fits you best. For instance, should you choose a fixed rate, a discount rate, capped or tracker mortgage? 

Many First Time Buyers need a high loan-to-value (LTV) mortgage. These are mortgage products designed for first time buyers who may have a low deposit amount. We can help you understand the differences between various offers, and ensure you secure a mortgage that fits your situation for both now and in the future.

Examples of the main mortgage types available include:

  • Fixed – pay a set rate of interest for a pre-determined term or period
  • Tracker – your rate of interest tracks the Bank of England base rate and can increase or fall
  • Marked down – offers a price reduction on the lender’s basic variable interest rate
  • Capped – your interest rate will not increase above an agreed level for a set time period
  • Bank account – combine a bank account with a mortgage, enabling you to make overpayments
  • Offset – your various other loans with the same lender to achieve savings and offers
Stepping onto the property ladder is becoming increasingly more difficult - especially for young people. There are several types of contracts aimed at first time buyers. Choices include shared ownership, guarantor plans, and the government Right to Purchase & Help to Buy Mortgage Schemes - ask us for details.

Help to Buy Mortgage Scheme (Winchester)

Many house prices in Winchester have seen big increases in recent years so it is no surprise that many find it a struggle to get on the housing market or make that next step to a more suitable property in this area. 

For those eligible, the Help to Buy scheme can help you make that move with just a 5% deposit along with an equity loan or mortgage guarantee from the government and a normal mortgage. Contact The Mortgage Hut in Winchester for mortgage help and advice, including details on this excellent Government backed scheme.

A mortgage supported by the Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme works in exactly the same way as any other mortgage except that under the scheme the Government offers lenders the option to purchase a guarantee on mortgage loans. Because of this support, lenders taking part are able to offer home buyers more high-loan-to-value mortgages (80-95%). You will still be fully responsible for your mortgage repayments. So if you have a 5% deposit, you will need to take out and pay back a 95% mortgage.

Details of this excellent Government backed scheme can be found on the Help to Buy (South) website.
