How to Get the Best Mortgage in Dubai

Being an expat in Dubai gives you a great opportunity to start building towards your investment portfolio, growing your funds and securing a stable financial stance for your future. One such investment is getting on the property ladder in Dubai.  A mortgage is one of the most common and popular long-term investments.  So how can an expat be sure they are getting the best mortgage deal available to them, and what things do they need to consider when buying their first property? Future Expenses Prior to seeking mortgages and loans to purchase properties, it’s important to consider any expenses you may face in the future – especially when deciding how much you can afford to pay. Some of the most common questions lenders will ask applicants include:
  • Are you planning to have children?
  • Do you see yourself starting a business/venture?
  • Will you need to put elderly relatives or parents into care?
  • Are you planning on further studies?
Affordability The approval of a mortgage application depends on assessing your ability to make repayments within the agreed timelines. This will help you determine:
  • The most suitable mortgage deal
  • How much you should borrow
  • Length of the mortgage term
Interest Rates Lenders will also consider whether you could handle the interest rate applicable for the borrowing amount. As this is part of the financial assessment, it will help you see how any fluctuations in the rate would impact on your monthly repayments. This allows you to check whether you could still afford the selected mortgage deal if rates rise. Holborn Assets Mortgage Hub Getting on to the property ladder doesn’t have to be difficult.
