When a hero works with our mortgage, title and inspection specialists, on average that hero will save on lender fees, on title service, and on a home inspection.

If I buy a home, how does the savings work?

When you work with our real estate specialist to buy a home, you can save 0.7% of the home purchase price, or $700 on every $100,000 of the purchase price. After closing on your new home, Homes for Heroes will mail you a check so you may purchase what you need for your new home! Plus, if you work with our mortgage, title and inspection specialists, you can save so much more! If you’re looking to sell a home let us know for more potential savings!

What if I’m not ready to buy, sell or refinance?

If you’re not ready, that’s OK. It’s still a good idea to speak to a real estate specialist if you’re simply thinking about it. They can provide good insight on preparation and steps to take before you even begin the buying, selling or refinancing process. Contact us to speak to our local real estate or mortgage specialist to learn more.

What if I have credit issues?

Our mortgage specialists can help you move in the right direction. Contact us and we will connect you with our local mortgage specialist. They follow all federal and local lending guidelines, and can provide the most accurate information and guidance on your ability to obtain financing.

This sounds too good to be true, what's the catch?

The only catch is that you have to work with one of our agents to get the savings.
