Our Story

Streamlining financial aid for homebuyers

Home-buying assistance programs have been around for a while, but over 75% of people that qualify aren't even aware that they exist.

Getting through the home-buying process with financial aid also tends to be confusing and tedious.

We realized that if we could build a one-stop-shop that made it fast, simple, and easy to buy a home with financial aid, we could help a lot more families afford a home.

So that's what we're doing. We're honored to be helping working-class families afford a home.
