Doorsteps helps you buy a home smarter, better, and faster. First time home buyers can learn about house hunting, negotiating, home inspections, and more.
Doorsteps was created to help every person in the market for a home make the best possible decision with that huge purchase. The site assists with everything from finding agents, moving companies and every thing else you may need to complete the purchase of a home or the actual moving process. It aims to make this typically stressful process much easier and more stress-free. The service has organized the home buying process into six levels, “Visualizing Home Ownership,” “Assessing Your Buying Power,” “House Hunting In Earnest,” “Making An Offer & Negotiating,” “Preparing for Closing,” “Closing & Moving In.” Each of these steps, according to Doorsteps, is necessary in ensuring that the home buying process.
Doorsteps is entirely free to use for anyone interested in buying a home, and the site guides users through its six-phase process by distributing information written by industry insiders. The site also offers up-to-date listings for homes, which are pulled from realtor.com. Agents are also using Doorsteps, so the site can link potential buyers with sellers. Although the service is free for those that are looking to buy, agents have to pay $25/month (although the first month is free). The site has tons of information that clearly breaks down the many steps involved with the big task of purchasing a home. Although taking those steps can seem daunting, Doorsteps only makes things more rewarding by keeping everything clear and easy.
