Homebuying Guides

Even before you begin looking for a home, the homebuying process requires diligent preparation. Buyers who have been preapproved for a home loan often have their offers taken more seriously by sellers. With advance preparation, you can tackle the process of acquiring the financing you need with more confidence. To help you on the path to homeownership, the Fannie Mae Foundation offers free step-by-step guides that can help you get closer to achieving your dream:

  • Knowing and Understanding Your Credit
  • Opening the Door to a Home of Your Own
  • Choosing the Mortgage that's Right for You
  • Borrowing Basics: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You

These authoritative homebuying guides (in PDF format) are available in nine languages, including English, Chinese, Haitian-Creole, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese. You can download a guide or order a print version online from www.HomeBuyingGuide.org, a Web site run by the Fannie Mae Foundation.

The Fannie Mae Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization devoted to affordable housing and the revitalization of communities. The foundation has provided free, step-by-step homebuying information to more than nine million people.
