Famous Movie Homes the Characters Could Never Afford

Famous Movie Homes the Characters Could Never Afford

Author: Pete Mugleston - Mortgage Advisor, MD

Updated: June 22, 2022

As we immerse ourselves within fantasy worlds of cliffhangers and ‘happily ever afters’, it’s easy to forget how unrealistic these scenarios would actually be in the real world. We conducted some research to find out whether these well-known characters could actually afford their famous movie homes, or if, behind those rose-tinted glasses they would be hiding a low credit score and needing a mortgage with bad credit.

In order to calculate the debt, we researched the following for each character:

– Estimated income before tax

– Property value

– Monthly mortgage payment (based on a 30 year deal, 4% interest rate and 10% deposit)

– Monthly rent (if not buying)

Lender criteria and policies change regularly so speak to one of the advisors we work with to confirm the most accurate up to date information.

Some types of buy to let mortgages are not regulated by the FCA. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. As a mortgage is secured against your home, it may be repossessed if you do not keep up with repayments on your mortgage. Equity released from your home will also be secured against it.
