Hello First Time Home Buyers Nation!! How are you doing today?
My name is Laura and I am your host and the founder of HomeFlow, a platform that provides education and tools for first time home buyers!
I decided to start the podcast because I want to empower others to face one of the most overwhelming, stressful, and expensive decisions in your life, buying a home. But why is it so hard to buy a home?
Well, first, you have to make a huge amount of decisions in a very short period of time. And at the same time it is really hard to know who to trust because the real estate sector is opaque and full of professionals with misaligned incentives.
So, my goal with the podcast is to make sure that your home buying experience is AWESOME and I can do that by interviewing the best professionals that are going to give you information that will empower you to buy your home safely and help you save time and money as well.
I will help you protect yourself with objective, insightful, and comprehensive information to empower you and to hold the professionals that you work with accountable.
I am also going to give you a step-by-step path that you can follow to buy your home and make sure that you are not missing any important steps.
Also, I am your biggest fan and I really want you to ENJOY and HAVE FUN while buying your home! This is why I am always going to cheer you up and bring you engaging content with stories from real home buyers, the good ones, and the bad ones as well.
I am going to release 3 episodes per week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The episodes will last 30 minutes. In each episode I will interview a successful homebuyer or a real estate expert who will share their secrets for a great home buying experience.
These experts include real estate agents, mortgage lenders, home inspectors, real estate attorneys, insurance companies, title agencies, credit repair companies, contractors, movers, and many many others.
So why am I interested in helping home buyers?
I moved to this country 7 years ago and not too long ago my husband Josh and I decided to buy our first home. I was super excited and looking forward to it but this turned out to be the most overwhelming, and stressful experience ever! Not to mention the most expensive one too and I couldn’t believe the lack of technology or objective education about it.
I did some research, I found many others like me and this is why I decided to leave my full time job at an education technology company called Chegg, to start HomeFlow.
I am obsessed with real estate because I love financial freedom, and believe owning a property is a great way to get there.
I really hope you enjoy the podcast and I am looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks so much for being there and I hope you have a really wonderful day!!
