The Story

In the intricate realm of mortgage financing, Fox Davidson has once again demonstrated its prowess by successfully assisting first-time buyers in securing an offset mortgage. The clients, self-employed with substantial tax savings earning minimal interest, sought a solution to minimise their mortgage payments. This case study delves into the details of the transaction, showcasing how Fox Davidson’s specialisation in offset mortgages for first-time buyers provided a tailored solution for clients with significant savings, particularly those who are self-employed and strategically manage their tax savings.

Our clients, eager first-time buyers navigating the complexities of the property market, were self-employed individuals with a commendable track record in their respective professional fields. Their financial portfolio included substantial tax savings that, until then, were earning minimal interest in traditional savings accounts. Motivated by the desire to minimise mortgage payments while optimizing the use of their savings, the clients turned to Fox Davidson for our expertise in offset mortgages for first-time buyers.

The Challenge

Substantial Tax Savings with Minimal Returns:

The clients, being self-employed, had accumulated substantial tax savings over the years. However, the traditional savings accounts they utilised offered minimal returns, prompting them to seek a more lucrative and strategic investment for their hard-earned money.

Minimising Mortgage Payments:

As first-time buyers, the clients were keen on minimizing their mortgage payments to ensure financial stability during the initial stages of homeownership. They sought a solution that would allow them to leverage their savings to achieve this objective without compromising on long-term financial goals.

Understanding Offset Mortgage Benefits:

The clients, having heard about the benefits of offset mortgages, approached Fox Davidson to gain a deeper understanding of how this financial product could work to their advantage. They were particularly interested in exploring the potential for reducing mortgage interest payments.
