Today's three quick links are for first-time buyers
Link 1 - a video from the BBC on ‘How to buy your first home’.
Link 2 - before you even think about buying you need to work out how much you can actually afford in terms of monthly repayments. And I like this mortgage calculator as it also shows the repayments you’d have to make if interest rates hit 12% (as they have done previously). Obviously actually obtaining a mortgage is your next and biggest hurdle
Link 3 - but should obtaining a large enough mortgage be a problem here are a range of schemes that could help you buy your first home.
