Broker launches first-time-buyer education site

Lessons include step-by-step guides, videos

A Portland, Ore.-based real estate broker has launched a national homebuyer education website.

FearlessHomebuyer.com walks first-time homebuyers through the real estate transaction process, from deciding whether or not to buy, to obtaining financing, to estimating fix-up costs. Husband and wife Dave and Darci Axness, principal broker and office manager, respectively, at Axness & Kofman Real Estate, launched the site in October.

The site’s content is based on a first-time homebuyer class Dave Axness teaches at Portland Community College as well as the couple’s own experience buying their home.
