So you want to buy your first home??? The CHFA First Time Hombuyer Guide is a great place to start.

Common First-Time Home Buyer Mistakes

1. They don’t ask enough questions of their lender and end up missing out on the best deal.

2. They don’t act quickly enough to make a decision and someone else buys the house.

3. They don’t find the right agent who’s willing to help them through the homebuying process.

4. They don’t do enough to make their offer look appealing to a seller.

5. They don’t think about resale before they buy. The average first-time buyer only stays in a home for four years.

Lender Checklist: What You Need for a Mortgage

□                Lender, loan number, and amount owed on other installment loans, such as student loans and car loans.

□                Addresses where you’ve lived for the last five to seven years, with names of landlords if appropriate.

□                Copies of brokerage account statements for two to four months, as well as a list of any other major assets of value, such as a boat, RV, or stocks or bonds not held in a brokerage account.

□                Copies of your most recent 401(k) or other retirement account statement.

□                Documentation to verify additional income, such as child support or a pension.

□                Copies of personal tax forms for the last two to three years.
