When you are looking to buy your first home, getting as big of a deposit as possible will put you in the best position and many lenders will consider you if you have a very good deposit. This is because a lender will have to think about the challenges you might face during the life of the mortgage, this may include unemployment or a period of less disposable income for example if you decide to have a child. Also, a bigger deposit will also mean that you won’t have to pay as much each month and will become more affordable. You also want to set some money aside for moving costs and buying things for the home, it is always useful to have a budget for unforeseen expenses.
The government may also have some help to buy schemes available for you to purchase where they can lend up to 20% of the purchase price of the property. This means with a 5% deposit from yourself you will only have to have a mortgage for the remaining 75% of the purchase price of the property.
