What Mortgage Value Can I Get for £500 a Month?

Are you trying to find an affordable mortgage within a £500 a month budget? Our expert advice will showcase the necessary salary levels and eligibility requirements to secure a mortgage at the right level.

About your mortgage

Error: Yearly income income must be between £1 and £10,000,000.

Error: Regular bonus must be between £1 and £10,000,000.

Based on your yearly income, you may be able to borrow:


Most lenders will let you borrow 4.5 times your annual salary so, as long as you have a standard 10% deposit, you should be able to borrow this much.


Depending on your personal circumstances, some lenders may let you borrow 5 times your salary.


Lenders usually cap the amount they lend at 5.5 times your salary, so it’s unlikely you’ll be able to borrow more than this.

This calculator is an estimation of how much you could borrow. If you’re ready to take out a mortgage, speak to a Revolution brokers to see what options are available.

What Mortgage Value Can I Get for £500 a Month?

Trying to understand what sort of mortgage you can get for your budget is a tricky process. Without knowing what kind of interest rates you'd be offered, it's almost impossible to calculate what any mortgage size would cost per month - and often this depends on multiple criteria.

In this guide, the Revolution Brokers team has summarised what sort of factors will impact your monthly mortgage cost, and what you might be able to borrow for a budget of £500 per month.

What Mortgage Can I Borrow on a Budget of £500 Per Month?

The exact amount you can borrow will vary between lenders, and rely on lots of different assessments.

As an indication, if you had, say, a 20% deposit and have £500 a month to spend, you could borrow around £75,000 to £120,000 depending on what interest rates you are eligible for.

To illustrate this, if you borrow £112,000 over a standard 25-year term and are offered a rate of 2.5% interest, you'd be paying £502.45 per month on a repayment mortgage.

If that were an interest-only mortgage, the same borrowing would cost £233.33 in interest.

How Can I Calculate what Mortgage I Can Afford at £500 a Month?

Every lender has different affordability criteria, so it is vital to use an experienced broker who can recommend the lenders we know will accept your application.

The total you can borrow depends on factors such as:

  • Employment - what sort of employment you have, and whether it is permanent.
  • Income - how much you earn, and any other earnings outside of a regular salary.
  • Loan to Value - how much you wish to borrow as a proportion of the property's cost.

What are the Eligibility Criteria on £500 a Month Mortgages?

Again, the criteria depend on the lender and their policies. Each provider would consider things, including:

  • Your age - if you are retired or approaching retirement, a specialist lender is usually the best option.
  • Net disposable income and any other debts you have.
  • Credit score - clean credit history is a less risky bet, and if you have an adverse credit history, it may be advisable to seek out a niche bad credit lender.

How Long a Mortgage Term Should I Apply for on a £500 a Month Loan?

The typical UK residential mortgage runs for 25 years - but this can be shorter or longer.

If your mortgage is too expensive per month, but you need to borrow a specific value, then stretching out the term to say, 30 or 35 years might make it affordable, although you will pay more interest over a longer-term.

What are the Average Interest Rates on a Mortgage at £500 a Month?

It isn't straightforward to estimate interest rates since these are unique to each application. Published rates might only apply to applicants who meet every eligibility criteria perfectly, and you could be quoted significantly different rates from two lenders.

The higher a deposit you can offer, the less risk attached to the loan and the lower the interest rates you're liked to be quoted.

Other circumstances also impact the interest charge, including bad credit and properties that aren't standard construction.
