Printable Home Buying Binder for the First-Time Home Buyer

This year has proven to be a hard year for many of us, but surprisingly, it's been a year that many people have become first-time home buyers. With interest rates at a record low, it makes it an ideal time for buyers to enter the market in 2021. Though buying a home, especially for the first time, can seem challenging, it can be one of the most exciting and rewarding milestones in life.

To help make buying a home an easy and smooth process from start to finish, FHA Loans created a printable home buying binder, perfect for those looking to start their journey to homeownership. 


The binder includes: 

  • Questions to ask your mortgage lender checklist: this will help you understand what questions to bring up to mortgage lenders when shopping around for a good mortgage rate

  • Homebuyer preparation checklist: to help you stay on top of your credit score, down payment savings goal and other tasks before shopping for a home 

  • House hunting checklist: to help you narrow down your options, this checklist allows you to check off your favorite features, list pros and cons and rate each home on a scale of 1 to 5

  • Closing checklist: to help you stay on top of tasks before closing on a home like inspections, appraisals and making an offer.   

  • Address change checklist: to help you keep track of who to notify with your new address
