Our Story: Helping First-Time Buyers Since 2005

We have been publishing home buying tips and tutorials for first-time buyers since 2005. HBI began as an email newsletter service, before launching this website in 2005. That's more than a decade of offering tips on buying a first home! Where has the time gone?

Today, HBI is one of the most frequently visited, and widely cited, websites catering to home buyers and mortgage shoppers. We have received literally thousands of questions over the years (if only we had the staff to answer them all). As a result, we know what questions you have, as a first-time home buyer. Our website is designed to answer those questions in a clear and helpful manner. Here's to another ten years of helping buyers.

We publish new home buying tips on a weekly basis. Currently, our online library contains more than 500 tutorials. Most have been updated within the last year, to make them more useful and relevant. The most recent lessons can be found above. If you're a first-time buyer, you might want to start with these featured articles.
