Barry Seymour

Mortgage broker

Barry Seymour, aged 67, has a background as a mortgage broker which basically means he is the middle man between the customer looking for a mortgage and the financial institution offering the mortgage. He will firstly go through all the information with the customer so he knows what they require and then find them the best deal he can. He will then send them all the paperwork required and then just wait for move in day and the money will be in the customer’s account, ready to pay for the property. He has done for over 30 years so knows the trends in the market and what to expect when regarding rates going up, best time to buy, which is best, tracker, fixed rate, repayment or interest only. Hence why he was able to come up with a mortgage calculator for the site which we hope you will all no doubt find very useful. This will help you find out in seconds how much your mortgage payments would be a month depending on how long you take the mortgage out for and how much you want to borrow etc. He is a father of 3 and a grandfather of 5 and loves to play golf and loves to play it abroad even more!
