We created a third option between renting and owning
We started ZeroDown because we felt there should be a third option -- a way to test drive a home before you take the plunge into homeownership.
Now, you can pick the home of your choice (any home on the market), move in now, pay rent for a bit, and buy when you're ready -- in 30 days, in 3 years, or any time in between.

Is this the right choice for you?
Here are some of the scenarios where ZeroDown makes a big difference.
Powerful cash offer to
beat out the competition
I don’t want to risk missing out on my top-choice home. I’ll win the home with ZeroDown and buy it right away.
Move up your schedule
a few months or years
I have a down payment, but it's just short of the home I want. I'll use ZeroDown to secure the home now, and save up a bit longer before I buy it for myself.
Stressed about the
I'm nervous about putting so much of my savings into a home right now. I wish there was a way to move in but wait longer to pull the trigger.
Our monthly payments are around the median amount for 3 bedroom homes in your market. If this feels different, it’s because it is. We found a way to make ‘home’ happen for a lot more people a lot sooner without paying any crazy amounts.
Our company makes money in 2 ways:
1. The transaction
We split commissions with realtors for home transactions (note: this $ doesn’t come from you).
2. The home value
You buy the home from us at the price-of-that-time (i.e., 3% increase per year). More info
If you leave the home we’ll find someone else to love the home, and sell to them at the current home value.
Is it 0% down?
It's 0% down payment to move into the home (we do have a starter fee of $2,500). If you choose to buy the home later, you'd go out and get a mortgage, and would likely do a down payment then.
Is this a loan/mortgage?
No, it's something totally different. Let us tell you more.
What does it mean to make a "cash offer" and why do sellers often prefer this?
Sellers prefer this because it reduces the risk of the transaction falling out. Let us tell you more
Does ZeroDown give you a better chance at getting your offer accepted?
Yes! Let's dig into why.
