We’re changing the home financing industry
The current process of buying a home or selling your property lacks a human connection. Today’s process involves several intermediaries within a single transaction. This ends up prolonging the process, results in expensive fees, and is complicated.
HonestDeed is redefining how people finance their homes. Our mission is to simplify the complex home financing process, facilitate collaboration and a partnership between home buyers and sellers.
We created a platform that transforms the current process by directly connecting the seller and the buyer to eliminate the intermediaries.
We empower people to build wealth
HonestDeed believes everyone should have the opportunity to build wealth for their future and future generations. We want to help people build equity by offering options outside of today’s traditional home financing framework. The current process makes it harder for families to invest in a home.
“Home ownership rates have declined 2.1% from 2009 to 2019” (Movity). Yet, “79% of Americans want to own a home” (Movity). We’re here to help them achieve that dream.
We also provide sellers with an option to increase their wealth through sellers financing and the benefits of maximizing the sale value plus the additional income they will receive from the interest rate.
Our services go beyond being transactional. We are committed to you and your family’s future. We offer person-to-person help and safety checks throughout your agreement’s terms.
We Believe In The Long-Term, Societal Benefits Homeownership Provides
At HonestDeed, we believe homeownership bolsters societal benefits and creates stronger communities.
Putting young families into homes
We make it easier for young families to purchase a home by providing flexible terms, safety nets for those unforeseeable life events and live support when you need it.
Stability in communities
Home owners tend to remain in their homes longer, they are more invested in their community and provide a degree of stability.
Building stronger communities
Research has shown that homeownership improves children’s education, increases civic and volunteer involvement, enhances health care outcomes, and lowers crime rate.
