PTSB will get you moving on your home buying journey

When it comes to buying a house, PTSB is here to support you at every stage of your journey. Whether you’re just getting started saving for your deposit or have found your dream house and are looking for mortgage approval, PTSB is bringing the best of technology and people together for a mortgage experience that works for you. With the new online mortgage portal and a dedicated mortgage team, PTSB can help get you moving to your first home or your next home.

Saving and your budget

As a general rule of thumb, you will need a deposit of at least 10% of the house price as a First Time Buyer and a Second Time Buyer. You’ll want to get into the habit of saving a regular amount every month to demonstrate your repayment ability. Through paying rent or saving the equivalent of your monthly mortgage repayment amount, you can show that you can repay your proposed mortgage repayment.

Use the PTSB Mortgage Calculator to check how much you could borrow and how much your monthly repayments would be.
