Use these tools to tap into the growing market of first-time homebuyers.
Our first-time homebuyer resources help you build better borrowers by preparing them for the homebuying process, while you build relationships with them.
Whether they’re first-timers or have been around the block a few times, the better educated your borrowers are about homeownership, the more likely they are to be successful. This is the place to start. Readynest.com breaks down the homebuying process into bite-size topics, and backs up the facts with true stories that bring it all to life.
At Readynest, borrowers can study for our Homebuyer Education Test, find calculators and other tools, and read approachable, first-person accounts of the homebuying process.
Show your first-time homebuyers that while waiting to save for a 20% down payment can save money in some areas, it could cost money in others. Our Buy vs. Wait calculator, located on Readynest can help determine whether buying a home right now might be the better choice.
Share the calculator on your social sites. Look for share icons located below the page title on any Readynest page to post content directly on your social platforms.

Program highlights include:

Please note, while our program meets Freddie Mac Home Possible® homebuyer education requirements, it doesn’t meet Fannie Mae HomeReady® requirements.
MGIC mortgage insurance is the original down payment assistance program. We know borrowers sometimes need a little extra help, but they don’t know where to find it. In fact, less than a third of consumers are familiar with low-down-payment programs.
And for lenders, keeping track of all the down payment assistance (DPA) programs out there and how to make the most of them can seem like a Herculean task.
That’s why we’re partnering with Down Payment Resource (DPR), the only national database of eligibility criteria and benefits information for down payment assistance resources, grants, bond programs, Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCCs), employer assistance and other homeownership programs – updated monthly with the most current information.
