What costs are associated with buying your first home?
To ensure you don’t end up exceeding your budget when looking to purchase your first home, it is important that you have a clear understanding of all costs and fees associated with a home purchase. By identifying these costs, you can make them a part of your budget.
Our experts at Remortgage Fast can provide you all the information you need concerning said costs and help you navigate how to go about ensuring you don’t pay more than necessary when purchasing your first home. Below are some common fees and costs you might come across.
Mortgage fees. These are the fees that will be requested by a mortgage lender in order to process your mortgage application. Certain mortgage lenders charge less than others and operate transparently by not inserting any hidden fees. We can inform you concerning which mortgage lenders offer the friendliest fees that will help you save on costs.
Surveyor and valuation costs. These costs will come about during the process of appraising the value of the home you intend on taking a mortgage on. By knowing the value of the property, it will be easier to determine the maximum mortgage you can take on it
Legal costs. This refers to fees that will be paid to solicitors for drafting contracts and facilitating the home purchase and mortgage process.
Insurance. The cost of home insurance is something else to take into consideration. Asides from insurance, there are other bills from the new home to take into consideration such as electricity and water bills.

What mortgage deals are available for first time buyers?
The sort of mortgage deal a first time buyer can sign up for is entirely dependent on his/her needs and preferences. There are several types of mortgage deals to select from and the best way to determine which is best is by considering what the homeowner intends on achieving by taking a mortgage loan.
You can opt for a fixed rate mortgage loan whose interest rate will not change during the entire duration of the mortgage agreement. This means that the same interest rate you agreed to at the start of the loan is the same you will pay till the end. The advantage of this is it removes all uncertainty and lets you know exactly how much needs to be paid each month.
On the other hand, you could opt for a variable rate mortgage deal. Variable rate mortgages differ from fixed rate because the amount of interest that will be paid monthly is prone to changes. Said changes can lead to you paying either a higher or lower interest rate in subsequent months depending on changes in the market. The advantage of this is you could end up paying significantly low interest rates for a majority of the duration of your mortgage loan. But there’s also the chance of paying very high interest rates in the event of unexpected surges. Some mortgage lenders offer borrowers the option of a capped rate mortgage which puts a limit on how high the interest rate can rise. By opting for this option, you can protect yourself against paying unsustainably high interest rates.
