Help to get financially fit

Before you get your heart set on a property, it’s helpful to know how much you might be able to borrow.

The B@Home app helps you look at your finances, looking at what you earn and spend (and how much you think you can save every month) and gives you an idea of what you may be able to borrow—and how close you are to being able to buy your new home. Whatever the result, you’ll be able to see hints and tips to help you spend less and save more, helping you prepare for a mortgage application.

Support to save a deposit

Saving for a flat or house deposit can be the most intimidating thing for first-time buyers, but B@Home can help. The app calculates your deposit target based on the asking prices of your favourite properties and your current savings.

This section of the app ties in with the financial fitness part too, weighing up your earnings and outgoings compared to how much you could save for your deposit.

Best of all, the app’s free, so it doesn’t cost anything to give it a go. Download the app now.
