Beehive Guide to Homeownership
The Beehive Guide to Homeownership, created by the global nonprofit One Economy, is a multilingual self-help web site for homeowners and people preparing to buy a home.
The Beehive Guide to Homeownership, in English and Spanish, is divided into four chronological steps: Prepare to Buy, How to Buy, After You Buy, and Prevent Foreclosure. The content educates vulnerable and first-time homebuyers about the process of buying a home and helps them avoid foreclosure and predatory subprime lending. The Beehive debunks myths about the barriers to homeownership and ensures that new homebuyers understand their rights, and uses creative media tools and storytelling to make the issues accessible and easily understood to a lower literacy audience.
