Start your journey towards your new home

The Journey Homeward is where you should get started. Here you will be guided through a step-by-step interactive experience to help you learn more about home buying and prepare at your own pace and convenience. Through a series of in-depth questions that asks you to consider many different aspects of a home, you will discover what matters most to you.

If you run into questions along the way Funiversity is chock full of content, videos, and quizzes on everything involved with buying a home.

Break down your budget and discover what you can afford

The True Affordability Tool will help you with the daunting task of identifying just how much you can truly afford, and gives you the ability to plan your budget down to the penny. You can even plan for future events like marriage, joint incomes, military loved ones returning home (what a great digital date!) or upcoming raises and retirement.

Once you finish entering your actual expenses, the True Affordability Tool will calculate three price ranges based upon your entries — Conservative, Balanced and Aggressive. With this personalized information you’ll be empowered to make more informed decisions about which price range makes the most sense for your next home.
