How affordable is buying?
We asked Westexe Mortgage Solutions what deals would be available to a couple looking to buy their first home in Exeter.
We took as our example a 25-year-old couple with a joint income of £40,000 and a clean credit history. They want to buy a two-bedroom home in Exwick costing £159,950.
They have an £8,000 deposit, meaning they require a 95 per cent loan-to-value mortgage, which they decide to repay over 35 years.
Here's what they came up with:
