ORLANDO, FL, July 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When an Orlando Realtor presented his client's offer for $30,000 over asking price in order to compete with private investors and hedge funds using all cash to buy a home, he never knew that the idea he had that day would become a reality. Now the local Realtor is making his way into the crowdfunding industry to help potential homeowners raise the down payment they need in order to buy a home with HomeFunded.com.
"Who would have thought that on a day when a client had to offer $30,000 over the asking price just to be in the game would also bring hope for potential home buyers" states Realtor Aaron Mighty. He has started what many would have thought unlikely in the current improving housing market, an opportunity for those with less resources, building a crowdfunding site from the ground up all on the simple premise that home buyers should come first not hedge funds.
Not only will HomeFunded.com provide qualified home buyers an opportunity to put down more on a home to compete against hedge funds, who seemingly are buying up every quality home on the market for rental purposes, but it will also open up more opportunities for homeownership to working class families who have been struggling to bridge the gap between renting and owning.
HomeFunded.com will work by bringing together home buyers who will start a down payment campaign by sharing their stories of what homeownership would mean to them with their social network via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and the HomeFunded.com community to attract contributors who will gift funds in increments of five dollars to help them reach their down payment goals.
On July 4th, HomeFunded.com will have a soft launch allowing the first 100 who sign up to learn more about the home buying process, down payment assistance and attend a webinar to learn how to effectively start and run a successful down payment campaign.
"We thought it was only fitting to launch on the birthday of American to show that the future of the American dream of homeownership has never been brighter," says Mighty.
