Discover our new first-time buyers programme

Have you almost saved your deposit for your first home? Are you confused or worried about the process ahead?

"Your mission should you choose to accept it is to create your first home success blueprint, so that you can confidently start looking at properties you know you can afford and trust they will give you a lifestyle you can enjoy in 6 weeks or less."

Hi, I’m Tom from Move Engine. We offer first-time buyer coaching and online training to first-time home buyers who are about to start the house buying process.

Why do we need first-time buyer coaching?

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, that doesn’t cover the other important side of buying which is guiding you away from the many pitfalls and mistakes that are easy to make.

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 things even worse

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, meaning every additional cost or expense when buying eats into your ability to invest that money in your new home. But equally many people forget the mistakes can be expensive too.

I thought there has to be a better way to start your journey and that’s where my coaching service began.

That’s where our “first home success blueprint” comes in to help you

Our signature system to help you focus on what matters to you

  • Knowing you can afford not only the mortgage but all the ongoing costs
  • Being confident to buy a home that you enjoy and gives you a lifestyle that makes you happy for several years to come
  • Getting a good mortgage deal that is right for you and understanding them and how they work so you can manage them yourself in the future


It also helps you build up the right skills so that you can:

  • Carry out your viewings so that you can avoid surprise costs and expenses
  • Build up your knowledge so you feel more confident and ready to go out and buy
  • Save money on the many move costs by being prepared in advance


But before you are ready for that you are likely to have questions or challenges standing in your way.

Which is why I invite you to a ‘Complimentary Next Steps Coaching Session’:

After searching the web for any assistance as a first time buyer I found all of Tom’s knowledge really useful and his advice is fantastic for someone looking for their first step on the property ladder. There wasn’t any questions he couldn’t answer, definitely recommend!!

Having had several conversations with my sons looking to purchase their first property in London, I felt concerned that as it had been some time since I had been directly involved with the house buying process, was I really equipped to give the right advice? Tom, CEO and founder of Move Engine, ... scheduled a call and they were both really impressed. Totally recommend his company to all parents of first time more

About me

Hi, my name is Tom and I’ve worked in the property industry for over 15 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.
