pierPotential first-time buyers would have lower monthly outgoings if they bought a property than they do renting, according to new research from Santander Mortgages.

In every region of the UK, average monthly rental prices now surpass those for the average mortgage repayment.

According to the bank’s research, would-be buyers could save themselves £2,300 a year if they were able to purchase their own property. The average monthly rent in the UK is currently £995 per household compared to monthly repayments of £805 for the average first-time buyer household, meaning homeowners could save an average of £190 a month or £2,300 a year.
