Homeownership Resources for Your Clients
Getting Ready to Buy
As your clients prepare to look for homes, make sure they know how much they can comfortably afford. Also, they'll want to know how their credit and the type of mortgage they choose can affect their monthly payments and overall cost of the loan.
Understanding the Mortgage Process
It is important that your clients fully understand the mortgage process and what to expect. Point them to our resource pages to learn more – from applying for and getting a mortgage to what to expect at closing.
Invite your clients to watch our videos, download our brochures, and read our web pages – our resources can help them at every stage of the homebuying process and homeownership.
If your clients are interested in finding out how much money they might be able to borrow for a home purchase or learning more about the financial differences between fixed- and adjustable-rate mortgages, we have a variety of free calculators they can put to use today.
For help tracking their expenses and building their budget, our worksheets can put your clients one step ahead.
