Working out your mortgage budget

It’s a good idea to know approximately how much you’ll have to spend before you start house hunting. The Melton’s mortgage advisors will help work out an affordability budget with you to give you an indication of how much you may be able to borrow.

Saving for your deposit

Opening a savings account can be a good way to save up for your deposit. Take a look at our range of savings accounts.

Finding your first home

Make friends with the agents. Calling and visiting your estate agents regularly will help ensure you’re the first to know when a hot new property hits the market.
Put aside a whole day, and do a number of viewings (six is the suggested maximum). Go on a weekday if you can – estate agents will give you more time than at the weekend.
Take your own pictures. These are much more useful than glossy agents’ shots. Film your visits on your phone, too. That way, you have something to refer back to.
