Movie star, Elizabeth Banks, exhibits her inner-funny-woman for Realtor.com’s recent ad campaign. You may have seen some of the 30-second TV commercials. But you probably haven’t seen this whole series of Elizabeth explaining the home buying process in plain English. If you have about 10-12 minutes, watch below:

Episode 1: Knowing When You’re Ready

Get advice on how to know when you’re ready to buy. Find out what you need to get a competitively-priced loan. Let Elizabeth show you how to find the perfect home. Learn what you should know before making an offer. And get tips on how to master the closing sale.


Episode 2: Mortgage Lending 101

Unless you have a boatload of cash under your mattress, buying a home usually costs more money than you currently have. First, you’ll need a competitively-priced loan.


Episode 3: The Search

You’re really doing it! You know what you can afford and you’ve got your pre-approval letter. But before you buy the home of your dreams, you’ve gotta find it first.


Episode 4: The Offer

Here you are, ready to make an offer on your first home! And since you’re about to part with an insane amount of money, it’s time to get close to your REALTOR®.


Episode 5: Closing the Sale

There is nothing more awesome than taking ownership of your new dream home. But before you do that, you better loosen up your writing hand. Did someone say paperwork?
