How to set your Budget for buying a house
The first step to buying your home is starting to save your deposit. As a first-time buyer, you will usually face a 90% limit on the mortgage you can get. So, the deposit you will have to pay will be a minimum of 10% of the overall cost of your new home. Use this to estimate how much you need to save. If you are a second time buyer the deposit has been changed to 10% also. Saving for a deposit can take time, luckily, we can help you. At Alpha Wealth, we tailor savings advice to suit your circumstances. As well as this, we beat the low interest rate environment which the banks currently occupy, by giving you access to a wider market. It is our goal to help and advise individuals through their different financial life cycles enabling them to live comfortably now and in the future.
Fed up of low interest rates?
When you decide to not use your money for more than a day, you should ask yourself what interest will you receive in return for doing this. Our objective is to offer a broad range of savings and investment solutions so that when you do decide to save, it will earn the best return for you.
Whether you are a regular saver or a deposit saver, it is important to know what various forms of tax treatment the savings accounts are subject to. This is an area which we can contribute to by advising on accounts which are either tax free or subject to a lower rate of tax. We endeavour to bring a little investment nous to how you structure your savings, and consider a portfolio approach to ensure they get spread across the various savings accounts on offer.
