Thinking of buying a home? One of the first steps is to work out how much you could raise as a mortgage loan. We have created a simple mortgage calculator to indicate what a monthly mortgage repayment may be and estimate the household salary requirements could be for the purchase.

First Home Scheme
The First Home Scheme is a government affordable housing scheme based on an equity share model. The First Home Scheme will finance up to 30% of your new property. This will reduce to 20% for those who are also participating in the Help to Buy (HTB) scheme.
The First Home Scheme is open to first time buyers for newly built developments.
Under this new First Home Scheme, the purchase of a newly-built home is to be jointly funded by the State and participating mortgage lenders.
