Editorial Guidelines

Last updated: Jan. 28, 2022

Homebuyer is the mortgage lender designed for first-time home buyers. We provide first-time home buyers with unbiased, easy-to-understand information to help them on their home buying journey.

We do this by creating content free of jargon, solutions-based, and painstakingly fact-checked down to the smallest detail.

To ensure we meet these guidelines, all of our content is:


Our writing is direct, and we hate jargon. We do, however, love de-mystifying complicated topics. If we have to read through a two thousand-page piece of congressional legislation to find one piece of information that will help your life easier, we will.


We’ll never present a problem without a solution for the reader. (If we do, tell us in the chat.) We aim to help you understand the home buying process because we know that a well-informed home buyer is the best kind of home buyer. We also know that buying a home might not be the solution for everyone right now, so we’ll never pressure you to buy one.


An industry expert writes each post, and it is then edited and fact-checked to ensure that we are providing accurate information for our readers.

Our CEO, Dan Green, leads our fact-checking team.

Dan Green is a former mortgage loan officer and an industry expert. He’s appeared on NPR and CNBC and in The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, along with dozens of local newspapers. Dan has helped millions of first-time home buyers get educated on mortgages, real estate, and personal finance. Have mortgage questions? Ask Dan in the chat.

How We Source Data

We believe that it is our duty, as content experts, to ensure that we are correctly citing information and that the data quoted is trustworthy. So, we’ll never link to a piece of data that we haven’t vetted ourselves.

Our sources are primarily government websites or industry leaders that we know have as high editorial guidelines as we do.
