First-Time Home Buyers Face Many Challenges - Including These Hidden Obstacles
For many years I have seen first hand the challenges first-time buyers face. What used to be a friendly supportive industry is now a much more digital experience, which as a result has left first-time buyers on their own trying to figure everything out.
Many of us enjoy searching on websites like Rightmove or Zoopla and this has become the main activity many people focus on.
However, it can be easy to get stuck just browsing properties online and not taking the next steps. Often because of fears or challenges that are stopping us move forward.
For many of us buying a home is a big deal. It is unlike anything we have purchased before in our lives and so this can lead to it feeling daunting and at times a bit overwhelming or confusing.
House prices have made it more difficult to buy
Added to it is the challenge of house prices. Over the last 8 years the average cost of a first home has climbed a lot! Making it hard for first-time buyers to reach a point where they can actually secure a mortgage on the home they want.
This increase in house prices has led to you needing to save an even larger deposit to meet the mortgage lenders minimum deposit requirements.
And deciding where you should compromise can be hard as this is your dream.
Many buyers sensibly try to save money, but equally it can be easy to forget the mistakes can be expensive too so not all savings are good.
And then there is the competition. With so few homes available to buy we can find ourselves struggling to find a home that is suitable for us and often competing with other buyers for the best homes.
It can be hard to know who to trust
When I first started out buying my first home I assumed the estate agent was not only working for the seller but was there to help me. Little did I know at the time their main aim would be to push the price up. Likewise as first-time buyers we get many recommendations for people who can help but it can be hard to know if you are speaking to the right people and they have your best interests at heart.
I thought there has to be a better way to start your journey and that’s where the Move Engine service began. As an independent voice supporting you the first-time home buyer.

Read some our recent reviews
Hi, my name is Tom the founder and head first-time buyer coach at Move Engine. I’ve personally been in the property industry for over 17 years. It was both my personal experiences buying houses and the lack of support in the industry for first-time buyers that led me to start Move Engine. Having gone into the buying process with such high expectations, I was disappointed with the lack of help and support available.
So Move Engine was created and I went out started to find the best partners in the industry to help you. In the last year I have personally helped over 50 first-time buyers with the next step of their journey. Our website had over 17,000 visitors in the last year and is continuing to grow.
If you are struggling to get started or have some questions holding you back, then let’s chat it through together so that you can move forwards. There are no silly questions when it comes to buying your first house and we are here to help you.
We want to be clear and upfront so here are our Terms and Conditions
The information in this page is intended for guidance and you should always seek professional one to one advice where possible.
