Sacramento’s Rapid Growth Highlights Need for Enhanced Homebuyer Education

Jul 1 2024

In 2023, Sacramento was recognized as one of the fastest-growing cities out of the ten largest cities in California. It highlighted the need to scale homeownership support to new aspiring homeowners quickly. We’re proud to welcome NeighborWorks Sacramento to our partner network and provide the Framework platform as a quick, scalable, and robust solution that meets the growing demand for homeownership content and support to empower the aspiring homeowners.

This June, during Homeownership Month, we released our 1st annual Homeownership Confidence Report, where we found homebuyers consistently wish they had homebuyer education earlier in the homebuying process. In fact, 62% of homebuyers wish they had homebuyer education when they were just thinking about buying a home. With a rapid influx of homebuyers to Sacramento, the Framework Homebuyer Education course within the Framework platform will be critical for NeighborWorks Sacramento to get homebuyers the support they need to start making smart financial decisions and understanding the homebuying process.

  • For nearly 40 years, NeighborWorks Sacramento has served its community with the resources, support, and financial guidance needed for homeowners to prosper and thrive. But just as communities needs can change, responsive organizations often adapt to meet those needs.

    So, we are humbled and honored to be a part of NeighborwWorks Sacramento’s change and refocus of homeownership services that began at last year under Lauretta’s bold leadership. 

    In addition to expanding their education impact with our partnership, the team also leverage an extensive retraining that has been levered to reach even more first-time homebuyers. We cannot wait to see how this partnership continues to grow and help the Sacramento community thrive!
