Online Budgeting and Financial Tools
The first step of buying a home is securing financing. Fortunately, there are numerous online tools that can help you develop a home-buying budget, calculate your mortgage rates, and get your financial prerequisites in order without leaving the house.
Working with an Agent
If you’re going to do most of your house buying process virtually, you’ll need an agent you can trust. The right agent will do everything they can to help you find a home on your family’s schedule, without risking your health.

Buying a home with kids in tow has always been stressful. While you may have to adjust your house-hunting strategy, you shouldn’t have to put your home-buying plans on hold completely due to health concerns or unavailable childcare. Use online tools like financial planners, budget calculators, repair estimates, and video chat to continue your search without leaving the house… mostly!
