Maybe you’ve started dreaming of homeownership lately, but you’re not sure what comes next. How much house can I afford? How much do I need for closing costs — and do I truly need a full 20% down payment? How does one actually obtain a mortgage? Wherever you’re at in your homebuying journey, we’ve got answers (and some strong opinions on paint colors!).   

Ellevest’s money coaches are here to help you make that homeownership dream a reality — and make a budget with that goal in mind. 

What to expect

  • You’ll tell us about yourself ahead of time so you can get the most out of every session
  • One 50-minute call (plus another 30-minute call, if you want) with a money coach
  • Help deciding what size mortgage you can afford and how to look at mortgage options
  • Guidance on how to save for a down payment and closing costs
  • A one-page personalized budget, emailed to you after your call

How it Works

Check your inbox for a link to book your first call. You choose the best day and time for your schedule.

Fill out a quick pre-session questionnaire. Your coach will use it to prep for your call so the two of you can hit the ground running.

When it’s time, your coach will call you on the phone.

After your call, your coach will follow up with action steps, resources, your personalized budget plan, and a link to schedule your next call (if you opted for two).
