Home Buying Checklist



A Home Buying Checklist will help you identify some of the most important buying factors buyers need to consider when buying a home. A checklist helps you know what to expect so there are no surprises. You’ll also speed up the process by already having your documents collected.

  • Decide how much you can spend
  • Check your credit reports to find out your status
  • Get an idea of how much you can borrow
  • Shop for a mortgage lender
  • Consider getting preapproved for a loan
  • Find a real estate agent
  • Research potential neighborhoods
  • Make a list of features you want in a house
  • Go house hunting
  • Make an offer
  • Get an inspection
  • Consult a lawyer if you desire, or if it’s required in your state
