When taking out a mortgage to purchase a property in the UK you usually pay back the amount borrowed, plus interest over a certain period. Typically the period lasts around 25 years. The payment will be taken from your bank account in monthly instalments.
There are several types of mortgages including fixed rate, variable rate, interest-only, offset mortgages, plus many more. Each type of mortgage comes with pros and cons and should be researched carefully before selecting the mortgage type that works for you.
All mortgages are secured against the property until paid in full.
There are several aspects that are considered when borrowing for a mortgage including, salary, credit score, existing debt, and monthly outgoings. These are a select few but an extensive list will vary per provider.
Just like a loan, a mortgage allows you to borrow a certain amount of money that will be repaid over a given period of time. The capital is the total amount paid for the property and the interest is the extra amount charged for the privilege of borrowing.
Interest rates vary depending on several factors including the type of mortgage and the provider. You can view some of the best fixed-rate mortgage deals from money.co.uk in the mortgage section.
Our Lustworthy Listings Explorer will take you behind the scenes of the UK’s most extravagant houses, so you can really see how the ‘other half’ live. What’s more, the tool lets you search by your own postcode, so you can feed your fascination and snoop on the most budget-busting properties in your neighbourhood right now.
In each section, you’ll find the fanciest pads, all updated in real time so you can keep coming back for more. Looking for something more than a three-bed semi? We’ve got country mansions, seafront homes and more envy-inducing properties from around the UK.
To coincide with the launch of Lustworthy Listings and to understand a little more about our obsession with expensive homes we surveyed 2,000 of you*, to find out the extent of the nation's property vices.
More than half (56.6%) of the UK spends their free time browsing property portals like Zoopla and Rightmove, spending up to 75 minutes every week lusting over listings.
Interestingly, those aged 16-24 spent the longest, almost two hours (108 minutes) per week - that’s almost four full days a year!
We also asked how realistic those property searches were, and almost all (81.8%) admit they use the sites as a form of escapism, and were searching for homes priced ‘significantly higher’ than their top-end budgets.
If you search #interiors on Instagram, you’ll find 28.4m posts to swipe through, and our survey reveals that it’s one of our most pleasurable pastimes.
Over a quarter (28%) said they follow these aspirational accounts for inspiration when decorating their own homes, with homeware, bedroom design and colour themes ranked as the top three areas inspired by Instagram.
And it’s not just social media that’s influencing our property preferences. Altogether, Brits watch shows like Location Location Location, Grand Designs, Homes Under The Hammer and Escape To The Country, an average of 10.36 times per month!
Almost two fifths of Brits (37%) would consider moving to another area of the UK if it meant being able to afford a property more aligned with their idea of the perfect home, with a further 23% unsure at present of whether they’d be able to make such a significant life change.
Unsurprisingly, more than half (51%) of those living in the notoriously expensive region of Greater London would be happy to relocate in order to find a more affordable home, while just a fifth of people from the North-East of the UK feel similarly (22%).
