Buying a property can be daunting, especially when it comes to choosing a mortgage to buy a house. At First Choice Finance, we can help you find the right mortgage with our unique combination of people and technology. First Choice Finance makes borrowing faster and easier, while giving you the personalised service you deserve.

To help you get started consider these eight factors when applying for a mortgage to buy a mortgage.

1. How much can you afford to borrow
The first step is to work out how much you can borrow. Look at your income and all expenses, debts and regular bills to work out how much you can put towards repaying your mortgage. Most lenders will base the size of your mortgage on your capacity to meet the repayments. Use our calculator to find out how much you can borrow.

2. Deposit amount
For most lenders, a minimum of 5% of the purchase price is required as a deposit. However, the more money you can save for your deposit the better off you’ll be. Repayments will be reduced and you’ll save money over the life of your mortgage.

3. Savings history
Lenders require proof of savings history in the form of bank statements that show regular deposits.
