Looking for a house in Sheffield? Get a mortgage offer ready!

If you are actively looking to buy your first house in Sheffield or looking to move up the Sheffield property ladder then Belvoir Sheffield can help you be prepared to act quickly

If you are actively looking to buy your first house in Sheffield or looking to move up the Sheffield property ladder then you need to make sure you are ready to move quickly.  

In the current market this means getting yourself financially ready. As moneysavingexpert advises, “few lenders offer actual mortgages if you've no property in place - they offer a ‘mortgage in principle' (MIP). This provisionally lets you know how much you can borrow, subject to finding a suitable property in a specified time. 

Proof of your deposit and MIP can give you a big advantage when putting in an offer. It may mean a credit check, though one mark on your file isn't too big a deal. It's best to talk to a decent mortgage broker who'll often be able to help give an idea of what you can borrow. Do bear in mind MIPs give absolutely no guarantees - they are subject to valuation. Mortgage rates shift daily, so always check whether a better deal's become available.”

It is also advisable to register with one of the credit reference agencies such as Experion so you can see the current state of your financial circumstances from the point of view of what the mortgage lenders will see. This may also flag up any issues that you need to address. Knowledge of this and taking the appropriate steps can make sure that you avoid any disappointments down the line and that you are ready and confident when you find the right property.
