Please review the attached wireframe and logo design.
The page should also contain the strap line 'Independent, honest and money saving advice - all under one roof'.
The homepage needs to grab attention in terms of what the site is for, with the main call to action being the 'How much can you afford' box. This box will grab basic mortgage quote details within this page. For now, please design to capture a user's salary (or salaries for 2 people). - example : http://www.moneysupermarket.com/mor…alculator/
The checklist is to encourage people to click through to the 'Steps in buying a house' page.
Newsletter needs to be a name and email address sign up.
The Find the best mortgage also needs to be a strong call to action.
Latest news will highlight (with images) the last 3 new items
Example competitor sites : http://www.firstrungnow.com/ (although poor design, you get the idea about news articles and getting people to click through and give their details).
Over all, a fresh clean and friendly site that looks much better than the competition.
The wireframes have been designed to contain enough information on the homepage without it appearing cluttered. With the main call to actions being the main menu and mortgage advice.
