How we’re changing things
We believe homeownership should be fast, transparent, and low-cost. For everyone.
Homeownership is a huge part of our economy. Housing overall is a $33 trillion business, and mortgages account for $15 trillion. Yet home finance operates in the same way it has for decades — through opaque systems and expensive intermediaries whose interests are misaligned with consumers’.
That’s why Better.com is redefining the homeownership process from the ground up. We’re using technology to make it faster and more efficient, and humans to help make it friendly and enjoyable.
