Buying a house is the single biggest transaction that most people will ever make. It’s stressful. It’s fraught. There’s lots of room for mistakes. For many people, it seems too big a challenge to even contemplate. But, with perseverance, planning and the benefit of some good advice, we’d like to show you that it may be closer than you think.

Financial journalists Sam Brodbeck and Laura Miller will be on hand over the next twelve episodes with a bumper course of no-nonsense explanation and expert advice on everything from investing in stocks and shares to dealing with bank fraud and going freelance -- and starting today with the big one: getting on the property ladder.
In this episode, join Laura, Sam and property expert Henry Pryor as they explain - in simple steps - how to save for a deposit, find the right mortgage, and avoid the painful mistakes that most first-time-buyers make.
