How to get the most from your investment

The key to making a buy-to-let venture work for you is finding the best possible mortgage deal. That’s why it’s so important to take impartial advice – especially in today’s market.

While buy-to-let mortgages are similar to residential home loans, there are some very important differences that our expert adviser can help you get to grips with.

For example, buy-to-let mortgages require a larger deposit than regular loans (typically 25%), and you’ll need to show the lender that the rent will cover your interest payments on the mortgage by at least 125% – in case the property stands empty for a while or needs maintenance. You should also set money aside for arrangement fees, which can be as much as £2,000.

Sizing up the benefits of buy-to-let

On the bright side, buying a property to let out offers the appealing prospect of a potential rental income, plus the possibility of equity to unlock later if property values increase. In fact, the right investment can give you a gross return each year of between 5 and 10%. That’s well ahead of what any savings account will currently give you, albeit with more risk attached.

And while average property prices across the UK have been flat in recent years, rents have been on the increase. Acting quickly, with confidence, is the key for buy-to-let, but don’t act alone.

First time buyer

Let’s face it, the road to owning your first home is a bit scary.

That’s one reason why more first time buyers now trust the impartial personal adviser at Hampshire Hill Group to cut through the marketing jargon, help work out what they really need, and then comb the market to reveal the very best deals available.

Your starting point is probably deciding how much you can afford to pay each month, we can show you exactly how much you can afford with a ‘Financial Data Plan’ looking in depth at your income and expenditure outlining any shortfalls you may come across. You’ll also need to raise a deposit – usually 10% of the property’s value or more.

But with interest rates still attractively low, Hampshire Hill believe we can quickly seek out deals that are perfect for our customers – even those with more specialist needs – while making sure they don’t rush into any costly mistakes.

Could you save money by re-mortgaging?

Re-mortgaging need not be a hassle. In fact, it’s something we should all think of regularly to make sure we’re still on the best mortgage deal.

If your current mortgage deal is about to come to an end, it’s important to start shopping around for a new offer before you get transferred onto your lender’s standard variable rate (SVR) – this could be higher than your current rate.

Why not let Hampshire Hill’s Mortgage Adviser do some of the hard work for you, and make sure you’ve got the very best mortgage for you.

New home, new mortgage
