Before you start looking for a new home, you should have an idea of how much you can afford to spend on a property. Most buyers will require a mortgage/ or cash in order to purchase a home.
You can typically borrow a multiple of your household income and this amount will be influenced by your credit history. Have you managed credit well in the past? You will need to approach the banks in Guyana, to assess your affordability and establish exactly how much you can borrow. You will also need to make a contribution towards the purchase of the house as the banks will not provide 100% mortgage.
The larger your deposit or contribution , the more favourable the mortgage deals you are likely to be able to access.
