The Home Buyer's Toolkit

Your Home Buying Guide

Buying a home is a big decision—and a very personal one. To feel confident and prepared, you need the right tools.

To assist you and other home buyers, REBAC created a unique and valuable resource—the Home Buyer's Toolkit. This comprehensive home buying guide walks you through each step in the buying process, with personalized guidelines and worksheets that will help you find a home well-suited to your needs. And best of all, it’s free!

First-time and seasoned home buyers alike will appreciate the Home Buyer's Toolkit. When you order yours, we’ll also send a Referral Report of local buyer’s representatives. There are many good reasons to work with a qualified real estate professional—especially a trained professional who has earned the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation, representing best-in-class buyer services. 

When you look for an ABR® before you look for a home, you’ll be served, not sold. Your interests become their interests. And you’ll be working with someone who has gone the extra mile by completing specialized training in delivering the best in buyer-representation services. Find a buyer's rep in your area.
