Being away from home is tough. Whatever the reason, whether you are deployed, working with medical teams in impoverished nations, or teaching English in rural villages across the globe, we at Homes for Heroes understand the unique set of challenges that being overseas can present: missing family and friends, missing out on American holidays and traditions, and more.
While you are overseas, serving not only your country but also the many people that are in need of support, it may seem like an impossible fete to be able to purchase a home while you are away. Some of you may be separated from your spouse, and from your children, so the idea of being able to provide a home for them may seem like it is out of reach.
Homes for Heroes is the most significant agency of affiliated real estate professionals. We have affiliates in every state and can work with you to find a home in the area you are wanting to establish some roots through purchasing a home.
Who We Are
Homes for Heroes, established after the September 11th attacks on the United States, believes in helping our nation’s everyday heroes by giving back to them through the home buying process. Homes for Heroes not only allows heroes to save money when purchasing a home, but additional savings are can also be earned through selling a home or through refinancing. If you are a hero in one of the following fields, you qualify:
- Healthcare Workers
- Military (Active, Reserve, Veteran)
SIGN UP on our website today. It’s a no-cost obligation. We will merely start your home buying journey with a simple phone conversation to get to know you better and to partner you with one of our thousands of affiliate agents across the nation.
Communication is vital in the homebuying process. Homes for Heroes has a chat option available. Being overseas, we understand that internet and phone service can be spotty. That’s why we offer several mediums of communication to get in touch with us so that we can better serve and partner with you in the home buying purchase while you are helping your country on a distant shore.
The chat option on our website is accessible and user-friendly. The ability to chat with one of our team members helps break down any barriers via instant communication. Our chat professionals are thoughtful, engaging, and are there to answer any questions you may have. Sometimes, it’s helpful to have that instant connection with someone, and we can meet that need through our chat services.
Email communication is the backbone of communication nowadays. With situations where you may not be in an area where you have access to the internet, email is a great and easy way to check in when you can. Our dedicated agents are committed to helping make the homebuying process as stress-free as possible for you while you are overseas.
The internet is a beautiful thing. Online active listings make searching for properties remotely a much more comfortable process than it used to be. Buying a house “sight unseen” does sound like a frightening proposition. However, with tools like virtual tours, slideshows, and, in some listings, three-dimensional walkthrough features, your agent can work with you to view the houses as many ways as possible. Communication programs like Skype and FaceTime are also ways that our real estate professionals can allow you to “put eyes” on the properties you are considering, even if you can’t put two feet on the property.
Once you are in contact with your affiliate agent, we will work with you to establish the mode of communication that works best for you and your unique needs while you are overseas. We understand the difficulties that technology and service areas can present while you are in another country.
Experts in Their Area
There are other creative ways that your affiliate real estate professional can work with you to make sure you are buying the home that is right for your family, and also in the right location. If you are moving to a town or larger metropolitan area, it can be difficult to ascertain what the pros and cons of each neighborhood or district are. That is the beauty of working with a Homes for Heroes affiliate agent.
Each agent that we pair you with is a professional in their location. They will know the best school districts, best places for commuting to and from, homes located near parks, and cultural events in the area, among other things. When you are moving to a new place while you are overseas, knowing that you have a professional that is in your corner working to find you the perfect home in the neighborhood that works for you is essential.
Another way that our affiliate agents go above and beyond is by helping you navigate utilities and who to contact to set up essentials like water, internet, garbage, and whatever other services apply. If you are buying a new build, our trusted agents can help you with final walkthroughs and the key pickup for move-in.
Homes for Heroes is dedicated to making the home buying, selling, or refinancing process as stress-free as possible for you while you are overseas. Utilizing our vast network of affiliated agents across the United States, we will find the right agent in the right town for you. We see your service while you are away from your family and serving overseas.
Having a home to return to while you are on leave or returning home for good is so important to us. We want to honor your work and service to your country and community by offering savings, excellent affiliate agents, and by helping you come home to your own home.
Contact Homes for Heroes today. We are available via our website to sign up, instant chat, and through email or phone. We would love to help you find your dream home, no matter where in the world you are serving your country. We look forward to working with you.
