4 more ways to become their go-to guru

According to NAR’s 2022 Home Buyers and Sellers Generational Report, 30% of buyers aged 23-31 said that understanding the process is the most difficult part of buying a home. At MGIC, we recognize the pivotal role you play to educate and guide first-time homebuyers through the entire process. That’s why we’ve created resources you can use to help your borrowers understand financial readiness, the mortgage process, mortgage insurance and more.
