First things first, you need to decide how much you are prepared to spend. Take the time to work out how much of a deposit you have – include any savings, gifts from relatives and the value of your existing home (if applicable).
Also, you’ll need to enquire about getting a mortgage. There are a number of different mortgage products available through a variety of lenders, so to help you make an informed choice, Anthony David & Co will put you in contact with a number of experienced mortgage experts in the local area.
Bear in mind that although you can’t get a mortgage before you buy, you can get a mortgage in principle which will put you in a stronger position when you bid for a property.
