CFPB Launches Owning A Home

The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau is launching their Owning a Home tools! They developed these tools with the goal of helping homebuyers and homeowners like you feel more confident, become more informed, and make smarter decisions about mortgages.

These could be good tools for the real estate investors to share with potential buyer clients to help them understand more about buying and owning a home.
