What is HomeTraq?

In the same way you use Uber to quickly find a driver to get a ride, you use HomeTraq to quickly find a real estate buyers agent to show you ANY home for-sale and are delivered down payment assistance options for that specific home. The social impact of HomeTraq focuses on low-to-moderate income areas, minorities, and specifically serves disinvested neighborhoods. Through partnerships with local financial institutions and community development organizations, HomeTraq improves access to homeownership & down payment assistance in all communities while connecting buyers to local real estate agents, instead of chasing them for mortgage customers.
