    Resources to Prepare for Your Home Buying Journey

    by Nathaniel Fremdon 11th February 2019

    Buying a home is one of the most exciting things you’ll ever do. It can also be a long and complex journey. Sometimes it can even be confusing with all of the different terms and financial hoops to jump through. That’s why at® we’re focused on helping home buyers understand the home buying process.

    We’ve recently launched a new video series to do just that. Whether you’re heading into the buying process for the first time or are a repeat buyer, our latest YouTube series, The Home Buying Process from A-Z, is designed to answer many of the common questions we hear: “Should I rent or buy?” “How big of a house can I afford?” “How do I choose the right home?” “What’s the difference between pre-approved and pre-qualified?” and more. The main theme we continue to hear is homebuyers wish they knew more before they started looking at homes. With that in mind, the series will cover a broad range of topics.

    Are you a first time home buyer? With so many choices to make and rising home prices, entering the market can feel especially intimidating, so preparation is crucial. And® offers a number of resources to help you throughout the journey.

    Last year, we followed BuzzFeed’s Ned & Ariel Fulmer as they bought their first home. They quickly learned that identifying needs versus wants is a critical starting point. Utilizing® features such as the mortgage calculatorSign Snap, and Find a Realtor were key steps in helping them start their journey and ultimately find their home.

    Our First Time Home Buyer Resource Center also provides useful guides that will help you ace your home buying adventure. Check out secrets from industry professionals to land a loan and find your dream home. Sift through the myths and truths about buying your first home so you know what to expect at every stage.

    Another necessary consideration as you prepare is to take account of the real estate landscape. In our 2019 National Housing Forecast, Chief Economist Danielle Halle provides insights on market trends and how to enlist partners to be successful in buying your home.

    Even if you’ve bought a home before, preparing for the home buying journey is an extensive undertaking. These resources serve as a great starting point if it’s your first time or a helpful refresher in case things have changed since you bought your last home.

    We’ve put a lot of time and effort into finding experts who can help explain the process from an unbiased standpoint and help you make an educated decision when buying your home. Our resources tap the expertise of real estate professionals, loan officers, product managers, and even people who’ve been in a number of real estate markets for decades — all sharing their knowledge with you. Happy home buying!
