Get Mortgage Ready!
Time to Get “Mortgage Ready”
Potential home-buyers receive alerts to new property listings much earlier than ever before. This is thanks to the highly addictive apps from Rightmove and Zoopla. There’s no waiting around for the weekly local “Property Guide” to come out anymore! Therefore, it’s likely that you will end up in competition with other potential purchasers. Even if the property is new to the market.
So how can you put yourself ahead of the competition to secure the property of your dreams?
One of the ways is to make yourself “Mortgage Ready”. This means having your mortgage “Agreed in Principle” prior to making an offer. An Agreement in Principle is where your mortgage application is pre-approved and credit scored by the Lender we recommend for you. The Estate Agent will then know you are in a position to proceed and will communicate this to the seller. You’ll only be behind a cash buyer in the pecking order.
Whether you are a First Time Buyer or a Home Mover, it’s a great idea to get ‘Mortgage Ready’
In order to obtain an Agreement in Principle on your behalf, we’ll need to take some initial information about you. We will then guide you through the different options available to you before recommending the right mortgage for you.
