Homes.com Joins Hit TLC Show to Help Couple Find the Perfect Home

Homes.com, leading online real estate listing site and lifestyle resource, has partnered with leading cable network, TLC, to help a St. Louis couple find the home of their dreams. The Rennie family used the Homes.com website and mobile app as they scoured the city’s neighborhoods for a home to call their own. Taking advantage of tools and resources on the site, the Rennies felt better prepared for the investment of homeownership. Their entire journey was captured on the hit TLC show, My First Home.

With access to search options such as zip codes, high quality listing photos, and a newly designed user interface on Homes.com, the Rennies were well-armed with knowledge and resources during the house-hunting process. Using the Homes.com commute calculator, James and Megan Rennie were able to calculate commute time to and from key locations -- an important factor for their active lifestyles. Homes.com’s neighborhood information with each home listing, including price history, estimated values, and relevant property records, helped the Rennies make an offer decision with their real estate professional.

Excited about buying their first home, the Rennies contacted area Realtor® Allen Brake to help them throughout the search process. Torn on their idea of the perfect dream home, they turned to Allen for his expertise and insight regarding their thoughts on a single family home versus an investment property. Interested in keeping monthly payments to a minimum, James was intent on properties with the potential for rental units. Using the Homes.com Mortgage Calculator was key, as he utilized it to determine how much monthly payments would be before and after renting out their property.

“Buying your first home is an exciting and confusing time,” said Brock MacLean, executive vice president, Homes.com and ForRent.com. “However, tools and resources available on Homes.com, such as the mortgage calculator and the assistance of a trusted real estate professional, can help ease the stress of the decision-making process and arm homebuyers, like the Rennies, with the knowledge needed to make the best decision.”

“TLC and Homes.com share a great partnership and nothing makes us prouder than being able to utilize one of our shows to provide opportunities such as this to help the Rennies find a home,” said Josh Trager, vice president, advertising sales, TLC.

Thanks to Homes.com, Allen Brake and TLC, James and Megan Rennie were able to find their ideal St. Louis home. Their entire journey can be viewed on Saturday, April 26 at 12:30 p.m. on TLC’s My First Home.
