The number of people getting their next mortgage online, as opposed to face-to-face, is set to double in the coming months and years, according to a new survey.
HSBC has found that while 16 per cent of homeowners went in-store to get their current home loan deal, 33 per cent indicate that their next one will be done on the internet, with almost two-thirds (63 per cent) of these believing it to be a quicker option.
That`s not the only thing that online mortgage purchases have going for them, with more than half (54 per cent) noting that it`s more convenient than having to go into the branch and 43 per cent believing it to be a less costly option.
The consumer direct lender found that younger homeowners are more likely to buy online, with 53 per cent planning on doing so, while regionally, Londoners are the most likely to sort out a deal from the comfort of their own home.
