Share this article

First time buyers, house hunters and mortgage movers in the Lisburn area could benefit from a major new campaign launching at Danske Bank.

Danske Bank branches in Lisburn, Hillsborough and Ballynahinch are inviting local consumers to a dedicated Danske Bank Mortgage Week from Monday, May 12.

The in-branch activity is particularly suited to anyone interested in finding out more about the ins and outs of buying a home or moving mortgages and finding out what support Danske Bank can offer them. The branch teams will also be on hand to provide a quick mortgage quote without an appointment.

Katherine Morrow, Senior Branch Manager, Lisburn branch said: “The housing market in Northern Ireland is beginning to show signs of recovery, with average house prices and transaction levels both increasing.

“The latest data from the Office of National Statistics shows house price inflation of 2.8% in Northern Ireland in the year to February 2014. Danske Bank is forecasting house prices to rise by 4.7% this year.

“At Danske Bank we want to help take away some of the worries and costs typically associated with buying a new home.

“That’s why we are continuing to offer 95 per cent loan to value mortgages for both first time buyers and mortgage switchers, and are offering £500 cashback to customers when they take out a mortgage with us.

“There is clearly an increase in the number of people looking to take out a mortgage, especially among first time buyers.

“And we have money to lend to people in the Lisburn area looking for a new mortgage, whether it’s their first mortgage, for a house move or switching from another mortgage provider.

“In a first for Northern Ireland, we have also started offering our customers the option of online mortgage appointments where meetings are held over the telephone and a PC with qualified mortgage specialists.

“This is already proving to be a really convenient way for customers to have an appointment with us from the comfort of their own home, particularly for those customers who prefer an evening or weekend appointment.”
