Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Zillow partners with Down Payment Resource

Rob Chrane, CEO of Down Payment Resource

Zillow Adds Down Payment Assistance Information to For Sale Listings

“Millions of people may be more qualified to buy a home than they realize, and partnering with Zillow is a great opportunity to help guide these individuals from dreaming to reality,” said Rob Chrane, CEO and founder of Down Payment Resource. “We’ve worked for many years to curate the most expansive list of affordable homeownership resources available. Nearly every community is served by some type of assistance program, and it’s our mission to get this information into the hands of those that need it.”

I had a chance to talk with Rob Chrane on my Listing Bits podcast about his journey with DPR (Down Payment Resource). It’s a great story to hear how Rob has manifested his vision to bringing this kind of data to help more families purchase homes.

So inspirational when you can match social good with such a great entrepreneurial spirt. Well done Rob, congrats to your team and Zillow.

  1. Rob and DPR have created a resource that amplifies the potential for Realtors to help people get into homeownership where they might not be able without access or awareness about the programs available.
    Any Realtor organization professing the need to close the ownership gap that isn’t making DPR a core service is doing a disservice to their members and those buyers in need of a leg up.

  2. DRP is an amazing resource that should be captured by all. In an industry where we give platitudes to affordable housing, one thing that can easily move the ball forward is making sure everyone knows which properties are accessible. The ability to use these as search criteria will help a lot of people find a home that works for them.
