The Change Company and its subsidiary Change Lending, LLC (“The Change Company”), America’s Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) have announced their partnership with Framework Homeownership (“Framework”) a homeownership education company that aims to expand homeownership opportunities for communities everywhere.  

According to the National Association of Realtors the demand for homeownership has seen a surge in the past decade. However, many potential homeowners face significant barriers to homeownership, including limited access to affordable housing, lack of credit history, and high downpayments.  

The Change Company and Framework plan to address these barriers to homeownership by providing education and resources to potential homebuyers. Framework Homeownership offers their customers online courses that cover the entire homebuying process, including, budgeting and credit, selecting homes, and even obtaining mortgages. The courses are interactive quizzes, videos, and other resources to help users learn at their own pace.  

“The Change Company is proud to partner with Framework to provide financial literacy and NIS-Endorsed homebuyer education to credit-worthy prime borrowers who have been excluded from the financial system for non-economic reasons”. This partnership is allowing the dream of owning a home become a reality for those who face some of these barriers. Omar Esposito, President and CEO of Framework says “We are thrilled to partner with The Change Company, America’s largest CDFI, as we work to make smart homeownership the new norm nationwide by leveraging technology to reach a new generation of homebuyers and homeowners” By combining education and financing options, The Change Company and Framework are working to create an easier path to homeownership for first-time homebuyers.
