About Homewise

Why We Do What We Do

Since 1986, Homewise has been helping people achieve their homeownership goals. We do this by focusing on our customers and placing their long-term financial wellbeing as the highest priority. We share in our customers’ challenges and successes, using those experiences to build a better way to buy a home. We believe that strong homeowners help build healthy, vibrant communities. And with the right tools and support, people can be empowered to change their lives.

How We Do What We Do

A better way to buy a home means buying a safe, high-quality, affordable home with low-cost financing, equipped with knowledge and solid financial habits. Homewise brings all the steps to buy and own a home under one roof. Our services and products empower our customers with knowledge and financial skills, provide them with affordable homes and lending products, and support them as partners both before and after the home purchase.

Our Mission

The Homewise mission is to help create successful homeowners and strengthen neighborhoods so that individuals and families can improve their long-term financial wellbeing and quality of life.
