Framework Homeownership LLC was founded in 2012 by two nonprofit leaders in homeownership – Housing Partnership Network and Minnesota Homeownership Center – both HUD-approved housing counseling intermediaries.
In 2012 we observed that while both the market and the homebuyers within it had changed, the way people approached buying (and owning) a home had not. Plus, the research was clear: informed homebuyers are more likely to be successful homeowners.
And so we did what needed to be done. We dedicated ourselves to making smart homeownership the new norm nationwide by leveraging technology to reach a new generation of homebuyers and homeowners. We’re doing this with a superior curriculum, the latest technology, dedication to our customers, and innovative relationships with lenders, brokers, and a network of nonprofit partners.
The first plank in our platform for smart homeownership is a state-of-the-art online course that meets the needs and expectations of today’s homebuyers. Our course has a comprehensive curriculum that meets HUD guidelines and exceeds National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling, and is wedded to best practices for adult online learning. It works equally well on desktop, tablet, or phone, and has an interactive user-driven design homebuyers love to boot.
We also assembled a network of nonprofit counseling partners that makes it easy for homebuyers and homeowners to get objective, one-on-one advice whenever they need it. And now we’re building out our platform to provide ongoing education and advice that support a lifetime of smart homeownership.
Homebuyers and homeowners trust Framework because we’re the social enterprise of two leading national nonprofits whose bottom line is to help build strong communities. And in the end, that's what it's all about: building strong communities through the stabilizing force of homeownership. In other words, making the world a better place.
