we believe in the power of home


helping you find a place to land

Birds know all about finding their way home. Think of the tiny arctic tern, who makes a 44,000 mile round trip annually during migration. Or an eagle, who returns to the same aerie year after year. The nests of terns and eagles are very different — but they both mean home.

Unlike most birds, people aren’t just born with the knowledge we need to find a nest. Finding home can be a little more complicated for us humans, with our opposable thumbs and complex economy. That’s where Readynest comes in.

Buying your first home (or your fourth home, or even your summer home) can be daunting. We’re here to break down the process for you in plain English, so you feel ready to spread your wings. We hope our tips, tools and stories will help you find, afford and love a home of your own.
