First Time Buyers Rejoice! 95% Mortgages are back, and better than ever!

Posted in: Latest News

This month saw the new 95% mortgages hitting the market. The announcement of these mortgages a few weeks ago during the Spring Budget 2021 was met with plenty of praise and the property market has been awash with talk about them from both buyers and lenders alike. Customers have been keen to find out more about them and mortgage providers have been incredibly busy getting prepared to offer them to buyers.

Here at NewHome4U, we have been busier than ever. With first time buyers looking to buy their first property, the news of 95% mortgages couldn’t have come at a better time for them. It can be quite stressful to get together a decent deposit in this day and age and it may require plenty of sacrifices, especially to get your foot on the property ladder for the first time. Many lenders usually ask for a deposit of at least 10% but the higher the deposit is, the more positive it seems to be viewed. This means that people try to get a rather large deposit together which often pushes their home-buying plans back. With these mortgages now available, they can buy their homes much quicker than they originally anticipated.

These new mortgages allow people to buy a property with a much smaller deposit than before and as you can imagine, many people are keen to take advantage of them. With plenty of potential buyers browsing the market, we have also been busy with people wishing to sell. There has never been a better, quicker or easier time to sell because there are so many potential buyers out there. A busy property market is always a good market.

But what are 95% mortgages?

The announcement of 95% mortgages was fairly recent so you would be forgiven for not knowing all about them yet. However you are probably very keen to take advantage of one if you have a fairly small deposit, so it is important that you know a little more about them.

A 95% mortgage is a mortgage that enables you to borrow up to 95% of the purchase price of the property you want to buy. Your deposit makes up the remaining 5%. It is designed to help potential buyers get onto the property ladder sooner rather than later – meaning they don’t have to spend time-saving a larger deposit. These mortgages can either be fixed-rate mortgages or variable rate mortgages.

The Government announced the new 95% mortgage guarantee scheme in the Spring Budget of 2021. What is even better is that it is also available to all home buyers – not just first-time buyers – with many lenders agreeing to participate from April. This is a positive step forward for potential buyers – and is good for sellers too as many more buyers flood the market looking for their perfect property. With plenty of lenders on the market offering these mortgages, there could not be a better time to buy the house of your dreams.
