Since the foreclosure crisis began, consumers have been looking for simple answers to a complex problem. Common questions we hear at the BBB include how one can avoid foreclosure, how to differentiate between different kinds of mortgages, where to get advice, and what steps to take when buying a first home.
While there have been many news articles written on the subject, I’ve been looking for a one-stop source for first-time homebuyers that will provide simple answers to our questions. I’ve finally found a great collection of answers and resources on the following sites. Learn if you’re ready to buy your first home, learn steps to take to get there, sign up for courses with counselors, and learn all about closing. And if you have questions about a particular company or offer, contact your BBB.
