Join the Down
Payment Movement

We are starting a movement in 2018 to inspire people to save for a down payment to buy a home. Americans of all ages frequently cite the down payment as the biggest hurdle to home ownership, so we want to give you the support and inspiration you need to save up and buy a home. Our goal is to save $1 Million dollars together!

You’ll get custom tips from personal finance and housing bloggers from across the United States, all aimed at helping you save up for a home. You’ll also get our 12-week course with all the info you need to successfully buy a home.
