What’s going on in the first time buyer market?

This week FTAdviser reporter Jane Matthews is joined by Will Rice, chief executive of specialist mortgage lender Gen H and Lewis Shaw, owner of Riverside Mortgages, who explain what innovation is currently taking place in the first-time buyer market and outline their views on where they think the market is heading.

Both guests acknowledge that one of the main issues for first-time buyers trying to buy a home these days is that while often they have the income to afford it, they do not have the capital for a deposit. 

Shaw gives an overview of some of the innovations that are currently available in the market and shared his view on what ones offer the best route to homeownership.

Rice, whose company launched in 2020 and specialises in lending to first-time buyers struggling with affordability issues, also outlines his view of the market and shared his own experience of recently becoming a homeowner.
