Moving? Do you know how much you can afford?
Buying a home can be a struggle and overwhelming. It pays to get some professional help and advice early; it will save you money, be easier and quicker, and keep your stress levels down.
Do you know, for instance, the cost of moving?
Have you considered:
- Legal fees?
- Mortgage fee?
- Stamp Duty fee?
- Surveyor’s fee?
- Estate Agent fee?
Do you know how much you can afford?
Before setting your heart on a particular property, it is crucial you not only know the costs involved in moving but also how much you can afford. Do you have the upfront funds you require and can you borrow the additional money you’ll need? Are you eligible for a Help to Buy Mortgage?
It may be that you can afford enough for that house you previously thought out of reach.

Preston Baker helps family get right mortgage for Fife move
“Jenny Porter and Paul McGrath from the Preston Baker Financial Services’ team have been absolute saints in our opinion. They have always been available, even on their days off and been very, very supportive in getting us the right mortgage.” – Neil Campbell
When Neil Campbell and his wife Catriona Campbell-McAra came to sell their flat in Street Lane, Leeds, following a new job offer for Catriona in Fife, Scotland, the couple chose Preston Baker to sell it, with the stipulation that they needed a quick sale to facilitate their move. When it came to getting a mortgage for their onward move Neil said they did at first try a high street bank but then found it was far easier to use the mortgage services offered by Preston Baker.
“Time was of the essence for us when we wanted to move and Preston Baker Estate Agents helped us sell our Leeds flat quickly and find a great mortgage deal to allow us to buy our new house in Fife, said Neil.
He added: “We bought the flat through Preston Baker originally and had a good experience so when it came to selling it we thought we would use Preston Baker again.”
“We were very happy with the sale and the price we got. The time constraints on us were the most important thing and the flat sold straight away from the Preston Baker Property Launch event, which was great.
“We have been really pleased with the service throughout from Preston Baker, particularly from Elle Pheasey who has been so good and approachable, doing everything she could to get the sale over the line for us.
“We would 100% recommend Preston Baker; the whole team has been great throughout.”
Neil and Catriona, who are both Scottish, are now living in Fife with their seven-year-old son Soren, and are loving being closer to family.
