KBC Galway to Host Mortgage Week.

KBC Galway is hosting a Mortgage Week (26th – 30th May) where its Eyre Square team will be on hand to talk to first time buyers, those trading up or looking to switch mortgage providers. Mortgage Week will feature a Mortgage Customer Evening on 29th May from 5.30pm to 7.00pm which will provide top tips in purchasing a new home and an overview of KBC’s extensive mortgage offering. KBC will have a number of mortgage advisors on site to deal with individual queries and provide approval in principle in minutes to interested buyers.

Recent research by KBC has shown that almost three in ten (29%) homeowners are thinking of trading up, but the majority (72%) of these homeowners haven’t done anything about it. KBC’s property owners’ survey also found that 16% of savers are saving for a house and 17% are saving for home improvements. 23% of property owners said they plan to stay in their property for between one and five years, while 36% plan to stay there long term (over 26 yrs). Of those who wish to move property, 45% want to move to another location, 24% have outgrown the house and 17% said it is easier now to trade up.

Discussing Mortgage Week, Keith McDonagh, KBC Hub Manager Galway said: “Our research shows that saving towards a property or home improvements is a common aim, and about a third of property owners are hoping to trade up, but a large proportion of these still haven’t taken any action around it. Our Mortgage Week aims to equip prospective homeowners with the information and practical advice they need. With increased mortgage switching products available and better value for prospective home owners, there has never been a better time to research your options.”
