The Homebuyer's Journal (Digital)

Welcome to the digital version of the Homebuyer's Journal, brought to you by The Homebuyer Coach.


Buying a new home can be a very overwhelming experience, and it can be difficult to know where to start. This journal was created to help guide you through the homebuying process, from saving your deposit to collecting your keys.


The Process

In this section, we'll lay out the main stages of the homebuying process. To make it easier, we've included areas where you can check off these stages as they are completed.


Budget Planner

Use the budget planner to work out how much you'll be able to save each month. It's also a good way to work out how much you'll be able to afford when looking at properties.



Here you'll find helpful deposit trackers to be updated every time you put money away towards your deposit.



There are various costs involved when buying your first home. In this section we have provided some of the more common costs to expect.



The exciting bit! Now you're ready to start viewing properties! Here you'll find your Viewing Log section, where you can track when viewings are booked and narrow down your favourite properties. You can also keep track of offers you've made with the Offer Log to strategically plan your negotiation.


Mood Board & Shopping List

Start planning your future home! Use the shopping list to plan your decor and furnishings to make your home truly yours.


Moving Checklist

In the days and weeks building up to your moving day, you need to be as prepared as possible. Use the checklist to make sure you don't forget any of the essentials.



A list of commonly used words and phrases that you'll come across during the buying process.

    Think carefully before securing other debts against your home

    Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

    There may be a fee for mortgage advice. The actual amount you pay will depend upon your circumstances. The fee is up to 1% but a typical fee is 0.3% of the amount borrowed.
