START YOUR FIRST HOME JOURNEY!
We are 100% unbiased. Most homebuying education has a hidden agenda - perhaps to retain you as a client, or refer you out to "preferred partners" for a referral fee that you won't know about. First Home Journey does not act as your Realtor or your lender, and we don't refer you out to them either. We are strictly here to mentor you and provide you with as many paths to success as possible. This program is also donation based so you are able to pay what you can for our unbiased advice. We just ask that you pay what you think is fair so we are able to continue to offer this resource for free.
We will help you figure out how much money you can spend on your new house, what you can truly afford, as well as what you are comfortable paying for housing.
Do you know your credit score? We'll walk you through how your credit score will affect your home buying journey and give you tips on how you can improve your position.
There are many options available for first-time homebuyers but they aren’t
always automatically offered. We’ll give you pointers on where to look and the
right questions to ask your lender.
Finding a quality Realtor is key to buying any home. We'll walk you through when to get one, what to look for, and what to avoid when picking this trusted advisor.
We share tips on putting together a competitive offer and help you understand, and effectively navigate, the escrow process.
Preparing to buy that first house can take time. We are here for you along your journey. Any questions? Always feel free to reach out!
First Home Journey is a neutral third party. As mentioned earlier, we are not affiliated with nor do we promote any particular service, Realtor, or lender. We don't represent you in any transaction to purchase property. By separating ourselves, we are able to provide you with truly unbiased advice on how to navigate your home buying journey. This is about you, your journey, and your options. First Home Journey exists solely to educate you, empower you, and give you as many options as possible. Your situation is as unique as you, and First Home Journey wants your ultimate decisions to be the best ones possible for you.
Our library of videos are designed to be a self-paced roadmap with an accompanying comprehensive workbook that will arm you, the homebuyer, with all of the information needed to make informed and empowered decisions towards the purchase of a home.
