Radian Guaranty Inc. recently announced the relaunch of its consumer-focused website, www.achievethedream.com. The newly enriched website, prepares and arms homebuyers with the tools and in-depth knowledge they’ll need to inform one of the most important financial decisions they’ll make – buying a home.
“We developed the original achievethedream.com because we heard from loan officers across the country that home buyers are entering the real estate market without the necessary knowledge to capitalize on their buying opportunities,” says Brien McMahon, chief franchise officer, Radian. “In order to meet increasing online demand and actively support educated decisions about home buying we redeveloped achievethedream.com. With its amplified content, we’re confident our new website serves as a unique and helpful information hub to aid consumers in making smarter home buying decisions, and can provide valuable information for real estate agents as well.”
With newly enhanced interactive tools, achievethedream.com arms prospective home buyers with the knowledge they need to navigate the often complicated process of purchasing a home. Included in the range of content provided, the new site features:
- Interactive guides that compute the projected opportunity cost of renting versus buying, how long it is expected to take to save for a down payment, expected monthly payments, as well as tools to project home equity and appreciation.
- Informative editorial that takes consumers from the beginning of their home buying process, including how to find a trustworthy real estate agent, all the way to what to expect at closing.
- A plain English explanation of what to expect during the financing process, including explanations of the various loan options, a mortgage application document checklist, and a guide to understanding credit.
In addition to these invaluable tools and resources, the new achievethedream.com provides visitors with a free credit score and credit consultation through iQual’s ApprovalGuard program.
Commented Jeff Mandel, President and CEO of iQual Corporation, provider of the ApprovalGUARD Service: “We are excited to be part of Radian’s new Achieve the Dream platform. Purchasing a new home, establishing good credit and securing financing are all complicated and stressful. We, at ApprovalGUARD, fully support Radian’s efforts to provide educational tools and resources to help simplify the home buying process and promote every American’s dream of homeownership.”
Adds Zoe Devaney, senior vice president, marketing and customer experience, Radian, “Buying a home is one of the most important decisions many of us make in our lifetimes. With the easy to navigate achievethedream.com we’re putting the power of information in the hands of consumers so they can gain confidence in how the process works even before they start looking for a house.”
