Purchasing a new home can be stressful and emotional for everyone involved. There are many steps in the real estate journey from finding a trusted realtor to researching neighborhoods. Before beginning the journey, prospective homeowners should gather their financials. A new partnership between CreditUpdates.com and ScoreApprove will help streamline this preliminary step in the home-buying process. Using the ScoreApprove web application, agents are able to invite their prospective homeowners to a free Home Affordability Assessment. Upon completion of the assessment, a Home Affordability Certificate is given with an estimate of the customer’s home-financing capabilities and TransUnion credit score provided by CreditUpdates.com. This new partnership offers some relief in an often long and strenuous process.
