This guide explains when it might be the right time to remortgage.
First-time buyer five-year fixed rate mortgages are those that are specifically aimed at first-time buyers and are fixed for five years. They’re typically available at 95% LTV, meaning that buyers need only provide a 5% deposit to get their foot on the ladder. Not only that, but these mortgages are ideal for new buyers who are keen to manage their finances over a longer period by knowing exactly how much their mortgage will cost them each month for half a decade. Five-year mortgages often come with a higher rate than shorter-term deals – particularly at higher LTVs – however they have the advantage of fixing the rate (and therefore repayments) for longer, so for many, the trade-off is worth it.
Our first-time buyer five-year fixed rate mortgage comparison chart is a simple and easy way of comparing all the five-year fixed rate mortgages for first-time buyers that are currently available on the market. If a mortgage can be applied for directly through our website, it is shown at the top of the chart (as highlighted by the ‘Go To Provider’s Site’ button) and the mortgages below are arranged to show the best rates first. The results can be easily refined by changing the filters above the comparison table – searchers can change the amount they want to borrow, the property value, how they want to repay and the overall term, as well as the region they’re looking to buy in and any specialist refinements (such as if it is a self-build property).
When choosing the right five-year fixed rate mortgage as a first-time buyer it is important to decide if this term is the right option, keeping in mind that better rates could be found by fixing for a shorter period. If a five-year term is the right choice then it is important to look at all areas of the mortgage deal including the rate, any initial charges and whether flexible features (such as payment holidays) or incentives are included in the package to decide if it is the right choice for your circumstances.
Before you apply for a mortgage it's important to check your credit score.
