Are you interested in submitting a guest blog post? Read on to find out what we are looking for and our guidelines.

Blog focus

The Down Payment Resource blog is designed for the first-time or entry level homebuyer. We aim to educate buyers about home financing, down payment programs, working with lenders and agents, homebuyer education and the home buying process.

We are expanding to include content on other related topics, like DIY, mortgage insurance, moving and more.

Where the content appears

Guest posts appear on our blog and potentially in our newsletter, The Down Payment Lowdown. We have thousands of subscribers who are homebuyers, lenders, agents, housing counselors and housing industry executives.

What we are looking for

Our readers expect engaging, easy to read posts. Home buying can be overwhelming and we want to empower them with useful, money saving information. Think about how you would share your information with a friend over a cup of coffee. We aim to educate in a relaxed fashion and then give them some simple ways to take the next step.

We’re looking for original content. It won’t be great for your SEO if we republish something that’s appeared elsewhere. How can you reimagine your content for our audience?

What we are NOT looking for

We aren’t looking for an ad for your product or service. These posts aren’t great for the reader or you. Think about your area of expertise and what helpful information you could share with a prospective homebuyer.

How to submit

Here’s what we need to get started:

  • 1. Your guest post (500 to 1,200 words)
  • 2. Infographics or images for your post, if applicable.
  • 3. Your name, title and company
  • 4. A short, 40-word-ish bio with links back to your site
