Our goal

We believe homeownership should be better for all Americans. It should be fast, transparent, and low-cost. Our mission at Better.com is to make that happen.

This is a huge, important part of our economy. Housing overall is a $33 trillion business, and mortgages account for $15 trillion. Yet home finance operates in the same way it has for decades — through opaque systems and expensive intermediaries whose interests are misaligned with consumers’.

That’s why Better.com is re-engineering the homeownership process from the ground up. We’re using technology to make it faster and more efficient, and humans to help make it friendly and enjoyable.

Join us in making homeownership simpler, faster — and most importantly, more accessible for all Americans.

The $15 Trillion Problem

Mortgages are a $15 trillion industry.

For such a massive and critical industry, home finance has avoided technological advancement for decades. Traditional systems are confusing and slow, and they aren’t aligned with your best interests.

Our platform puts you in the driver’s seat, providing you with full transparency into the process and saving you time that would have been wasted through inefficient and sloppy practices.

We’re making it better.
