It has never been harder to get your foot on the property ladder. With house prices spiralling upwards, fewer properties available and wider economic uncertainty many people simply can't buy a home.

Specifically, the book will show you: How to identify your current buying status; How to enhance your status ranking; The definition of buying power and ways to increase it; How mortgage companies really work; How to increase your credit worthiness; How to raise your your first deposit quickly; All the mortgage companies, with their criterias for First time buyers including 125 per cent LTV and high income multiple mortgage lenders; How to get value for money in property; How to deal with estate agents and negotiate effectively with them; Where else to look for that bargain property; How to increase your salary!
