Frequently Asked Questions
How much can you borrow for a mortgage?
As a general guide first time buyers applying for a mortgage can borrow a maximum of 3.5 times their salary. So for a single earner earning €35,000 per annum, the maximum you can borrow would be €122,500.
For two income application we combine both incomes so applicant one is earning €50,000 and the second applicant is earning €35,000 we have total earnings of €85,000 so we can borrow €85,000 x 3.5 = €297,500.
