Introducing the BoostUp Home Buying Checklist

1 min to read

At BoostUp, we’ve spent the last year talking with potential home buyers, most looking to purchase their first home. One thing we’ve consistently heard is the confusion around the processes leading up to a home purchase:

“Is 20% required for a down payment?”

“Do I need to check my credit score?”

“How do I know how much home can I afford?”

“Do I need to get pre-approved?”

“How do I find a good real estate agent?“

Based on this feedback and the lack of a true helping hand to these future buyers, we are excited to launch our interactive Home Buying Checklist. The purpose of the checklist is to be a valuable guide to people as they journey toward their first home purchase.

We’ve assembled some of the best partners in the real estate industry to help future buyers answer the above questions through our checklist. These BoostUp partners are people we trust and who share our mission for helping consumers. They include Credit Karma, NerdWallet and Quicken Loans.

The Home Buying Checklist is now incorporated into a BoostUp saver’s dashboard experience. We will provide on-going notifications to our savers to keep them on track as they approach their home purchase goal date. We hope this on-going guidance will empower more first-time buyers and give them the confidence they need to make the right decisions on buying a home.

As always, we can’t improve and provide the best down payment experience for people without feedback. We would love to hear from you in the comments below, through chat on or via email at
