Taking out a mortgage is one of the largest financial commitments many people make in their lives and it makes sense to get the best deal possible. Despite the wealth of products on the market, the overwhelming choice can make it difficult to find the right product in the mortgage maze.
For this reason, Britian's best property portal Home.co.uk has teamed up with Moneyextra, the web-arm of independent financial services giant Chase de Vere and part of Europe's largest IFA association AWD Group plc, to bring customers a wider choice of personal financial products from mortgages to credit cards, savings accounts to car loans.
Customers will now be able to search around 400,000 properties for sale across the UK to find their new home, and explore their mortgage opportunities at the same time on the same site, with Moneyextra's unbiased financial expertise, products and services. Anxious home buyers can apply online for a quick mortgage agreement in principal, rather than having to wait weeks for appointments and applications at high street building societies and banks. And because applications can be made before the property is found, buyers know the actual amount they can comfortably borrow, avoiding disappointment or financial overstretch at a later date.
Customers can compare, browse and buy from their desktop 24/7, fitting the house buying process around their other commitments and reducing the stress normally associated with moving. Existing mortgagees can use the site to run comparisons against other products on the market to ensure that their current mortgage or loan is still competitive. Over 300,000 comparisons are made every month, reassuring mortgage-seekers and holders.
Home.co.uk and Moneyextra's united vision brings together comprehensive mortgage choices with comprehensive property choices, so that house-buyers have all the information guidance they need at their fingertips before taking their decisions.
