Independent advice for first time buyers

If you are a first time buyer looking for a mortgage, it’s usually a good idea to get independent advice based on your unique situation. At Watts we are independent advisers able to research the whole market to help you find the right mortgage, as we’re not tied to one provider. Our team can offer advice and recommendations, as well as answering any questions you might have about choosing a mortgage.

We would often recommend that you save as large a deposit as possible, as it could help you get a better deal at a lower interest rate. It’s also important to keep within your means, making sure you don’t overstretch yourself on mortgage payments. As a first time buyer, it’s really important to understand your budget, as well as the type of mortgage to choose. There are two repayment methods: repayment mortgages and interest-only mortgages. For a first time buyer, a repayment mortgage would be a much more suitable choice.

At Watts, we can provide independent advice on mortgage products and help you to feel more at ease, ensuring the process is enjoyable and exciting!
