Putting the Love in Home Search
Local is a concierge service though mortgage lender Keystone Funding, and its real-estate agency affiliate, First Keystone Realty. Local helps educate prospective home buyers, helps to get them pre-approved, then connects them with a proven real estate agent in their local market.
The goal of Local is to be a one-stop-shop for buying, financing, and selling a home; providing a quicker, easier, more cohesive experience than the traditional home purchase process.
Local builds on Keystone Funding’s proprietary financial technologies to provide an end-to-end digital home buying experience that offers convenience and simplicity. Prospective home buyers can search the local real estate market on their mobile device, ask questions about properties, apply for financing from their mobile device, even access their bank accounts and upload support docs. Real estate listings on the Local website come directly from the MLS, so you are sure to see every home listed for sale.
The process is simple:
- Get pre-approved for a home loan. Work with your Local concierge to understand your purchasing power.
- Search homes for sale on Local website
- Setup search criteria and register to receive listing alerts of properties of interest
- Ask your Local concierge any questions about properties, or the home buying process
