In 2020, IRN Research estimates that FTBs borrowed 7.2% less to purchase their first homes, compared with 2019, mainly due to the impact of COVID-19. In 2020, the number of new mortgages taken out fell by 12.6%, again the decline reflecting the impact of COVID-19 on the market. At the end of December 2020, FTBs collectively owed £289 billion on outstanding mortgages, which represented a 7.1% growth over the amounts owed at the end of 2019.
