Bank of Ireland is "open for mortgage lending"
If you think that buying a home is difficult, then think again. Bank of Ireland is making it easier for anyone who wants to get on the property ladder for the first time or to move into a bigger house.

If you think that buying a home is difficult, then think again. Bank of Ireland is making it easier for anyone who wants to get on the property ladder for the first time or to move into a bigger house.

The bank has approved more than €1.2 billion in mortgage finance since last October and has now introduced a new €2 billion fund for first-time buyers and movers due to customer demand.

“We are seeing strong evidence that residential property prices are continuing to stabilise, and positive signs of improving confidence, as more of our customers want to buy a home,” says Marney O’Regan, branch manager in Bank of Ireland Thurles. “I’d like to invite anyone interested in buying or moving to come in and talk to one of our qualified mortgage advisers about getting a mortgage.”

As well as helping first-time buyers, Bank of Ireland also has options to support customers who may want to move home but are in negative equity, and for tracker mortgage customers who are considering their options.

Anytime, anywhere, nothing beats the personal touch when it comes to discussing life-changing decisions such as buying a home. That is why Bank of Ireland has an extensive network of qualified mortgage advisers in more than 250 branches across the country.

A Bank of Ireland mortgage adviser will give you practical advice on how to prepare for taking on a mortgage. This includes advice on setting up a regular savings account; making sure your day-to-day finances are in order, and how to review existing borrowings.
