Fast Track Mortgage Deposit in Less Than A Year

Mortgage Goal

So we never really had a decisive time-frame on when we wanted to move exactly, however when we returned home from travelling around Europe for 6 weeks, the following day, our car was vandalised. This was the straw that broke the camels back as they say! Time for Operation: £0 to Mortgage Deposit In Less Than A Year! How I don’t know, but it’ll be done!

We have literally no idea how we are going to pull this one out the bag, but we know with determination and the drive we can achieve this within 12 months from this post. I don’t know how you can go from £0 to getting a Mortgage for a dream home but what I do know, is that when you have a strong drive behind you, I believe you can achieve anything! We have set ourselves a target of saving approxamitely £20,000 ~ £30,000 which will be used as a house deposit for our Mortgage when the time comes around (within 12 months *fingers crossed*). We are quite fortunate living up north in the UK that we have the lowest property prices in England. I couldn’t even begin to imagine what it’d be like living in the Capital and trying to buy houses.

We’ve been searching around for the best advice to assist us with the mortgage process so have been looking into clearing up any short term debt. The aim is to have this cleared within the next month. From here on in, it’ll be a case of earning plenty of pennies online to achieve our goal! We are actively searching out any other advice from professionals online that can help us with the mortgage process.

The target is to earn and save between £1,6000 – £2,500 a month, to fall in line with our 20-30k 12month aim. Ideally, the more we save each month, the faster we can move in theory.

The goal line has been set, can we make it who knows!? Be sure to keep an eye over the coming 12 months, as I’ll be doing monthly roundups of how we are progressing as-well as any methods we have found to earn money online from home.

Do you have any suggestions for making £30,000 online over the next 12 months? Let me know in the comments section below

  • I have no idea but this is a great idea – good luck with it!

  • fashion-mommy

    I have absolutely no idea, I am so useless at saving, I spend and splurge!

  • Such a good goal! If you don’t already have one, apply for a help to buy ISA – I have one, it’s great, and the government give you an extra 25% on what you save (up to a certain amount)!

  • I hope the savings go well! I think as long as you’re keeping a close eye on your accounts it’s possible.

  • So sorry to hear your car was vandalised! Definitely time to move, for sure. Good luck with the money saving! I have no tips, I’m afraid.

    • It was totally just the end of the line for us, but its spurred us on to buck our ideas up fast

  • that’s a serious amount to save in a year time, im sure there are (legal) ways to make that amount of money online , but trying to develop a new business are make it produce that doesn’t make things esier

  • Harriet @ Toby&Roo

    Check out From Aldi to Harrods, she has some amazing tips for saving moola. You definitely live in the right place, I have always hated living up here and would kill to move down south but I’m sad to say the quality of property and, and ultimately due to that with three kids, life up here is so much better!

    • Thanks Harriet, will take a look! Yeh, if I was living in London i’d have no chance of getting another house aha

  • Tanya Brannan

    Wow! What a target to try and reach. When you want something badly enough, it’s amazing what you can achieve! Good Luck

  • Good luck with this goal and hope you achieve it, I want to do the same next year

  • beautykinguk

    I am wishing you well with your savings, that is an impressive amount of money to save!

  • Good luck, it can be done. I follow the lovewanderers (I think that’s what they are called?) and they saved up as much as they could in a year to travel the world.
    Think of everything you don’t need, the newspaper, the gym, the extra pair of trainers and save every penny that you don’t need for bills and essential food and it could be done.
    Good luck. Sorry to hear about your car!
