How Much Can I Borrow?
We look forward to looking after you.
Most home buyers use a combination of mortgage facilities and savings or help to buy schemes to buy their new home.
First time buyers can take out a mortgage of up to 90% of the purchase price of a home.
Second time buyers can take out a mortgage of up to 80%.
When arranging mortgages we need to satisfy lenders that can comfortably afford the repayments on the mortgage. In this regard we look at evidence of consistent savings and also history of rental payments.
Mortgage Calculator- How much can you borrow?
The normal maximum mortgage level is capped at 3.5 times your gross annual income. For example, if your gross salary is €80,000, the maximum mortgage would be €280,000.
This calculator gives you an estimate of the maximum amount you will be able to borrow.
Currently exceptions above this level are not available. Exceptions are generally used up by lenders at the start of the year, with some lenders opening up for a small level of exceptions in or around October.
