The App I Wish I’d Had A Year Ago: HOME By Fannie Mae

Oct 26 2015

When I began the homebuying process, I searched everywhere for an app that would help me navigate through this totally overwhelming experience. I did an enormous amount of research online. I regularly visited 5-10 websites to read articles and find financial calculators. But, like everything else in my life, I really wish I’d had a good app that I could look at throughout the day or during my morning commute. Well, now I do!

Fannie Mae recently launched HOME by Fannie MaeTM, a homebuying app. The app offers first-time homebuyers resources to learn about the homebuying process, estimate what they can afford, and prepare for the financial responsibility of maintaining their home after purchase.

I received a preview of the app during development, and I was so excited to play with the calculators. Finding reliable calculators was the hardest part for me when I was starting to look into buying a home.
