When buying a home, it’s important to be ready


Through the NEA Home Financing Program, with financing provided by Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, NEA members, their parents and children have access to a wide range of home loan options to meet a variety of needs and receive a special benefit after closing.

If you’re thinking about buying a home, Wells Fargo wants to make sure you’re prepared so that the process goes smoothly. If you’re buying your next home, you can find out more about today’s homebuying process — some things may have changed since you last bought a home. And if you’re looking for your first home, you can learn more about what’s needed to become a homeowner.


Whatever your situation, these dynamic resources may help.


Get prepared

The My FirstHome® online interactive learning experience is for anyone who wants to learn more about finding, financing, and owning a home. Find it at wellsfargo.com/myfirsthome.


Find the right home loan for you

When you’re ready to start exploring home financing options, look to our Home Loan Shopping Tools. Buyers can find their home price range, review different scenarios and loan options, and translate a list price of a home into a monthly payment. Find these tools at wellsfargo.com/mortgage/planning.


Take charge of your home financing decisions

Find a clear path through the homebuying process to the loan closing and beyond when you visit the Wells Fargo Home Lending Learning and Planning Center. Customers can access on-demand tools and easy-to follow information to help them take charge of their decisions. Find it at wellsfargo.com/mortgage/home-loans.


Know where you stand throughout the loan process

Track your home loan’s progress from your computer, smartphone, or tablet and stay on top of every step in the process with yourLoanTrackerSM. You can receive, review, and securely upload documents, plus sign select documents electronically. Wells Fargo can help determine if a specific home loan is available with yourLoanTracker features.


Whatever stage of the process, these tools can help you learn more and make decisions along the way.

And remember, after closing on a loan through the NEA Home Financing Program, you’re eligible to receive a My Mortgage GiftSM award from Wells Fargo approximately 6 weeks after closing — $500 for buying a home, or $300 for refinancing your home – for use at participating retailers. 1
