Yelp in the know: New homeowners edition

It’s no secret that the housing market is a little bonkers right now. Whether you just purchased your first home, you’ve been looking, or you’re interested in starting your search soon, we’re here to let you know that Yelp can help make the process a wee less stressful. Turn this milestone experience into an exciting one by finding the help you need on Yelp!


When it comes to working with a mortgage broker, real estate agent, or any of the other professional services needed during the process of buying a home, trust is a must. That’s where Yelp comes in. You can find all of these types of businesses by doing a search on Yelp. Reading reviews, viewing photos, and business owner responses can help you find the best business to work with. Start your search for a lender here.

So you’re officially a homeowner — congrats! After your well deserved celebration, setting up your utilities, getting insurance, and treating your new home to a deep clean is probably next on your to-do list. At this point, you’re likely saying to yourself, “I can do all of this on Yelp!” And you’re absolutely correct. You can even request-a-quote from a home cleaner near you in order to ensure you get the best pricing. 

Next, don’t forget to get your locks changed and your address updated. While these aren’t the thrilling parts of home ownership, they are necessary. Sometimes going to the department of motor vehicles or hiring a locksmith just must be done. Find the closest post office to your new home or the best one to visit according to Yelp Elites in your community with a quick search on Yelp.


While we know that purchasing a home can be an exhausting and stressful process, Yelp is here to help lift the weight by connecting you to local businesses to assist in all your home-buying needs. Be sure to try out Yelp’s free request-a-quote tool too. Save time connecting with a variety of businesses and find the right one within your budget. Happy house hunting!


Always stay in the know!
