SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Realtor.com® today unveiled The Big Move, an original video series that tells the story of a young military family as they search for and make their dream home become a reality. The series, sponsored by Veterans United Home Loans, follows Air Force Veteran Kameron and wife, Brianna, on their journey to find a new home as they move their family of four to Florida from Georgia.
"We knew we wanted a place where we could flourish as a family, but didn't know where to start," said Kameron Carver. "Thanks to realtor.com and Veterans United, we discovered resources we wouldn't have found on our own and were able to focus on finding and perfecting our dream home, knowing that we had professionals supporting us every step of the way. It was so nice to have everything we needed in one place."
The Big Move's six episodes capture pivotal points of Kameron and Brianna's home search as first-time homebuyers, including:
- Browsing realtor.com®'s listings
- Deciding on dream home requirements
- Learning about VA loan eligibility and benefits and securing pre-approval
- Working with a real estate professional to find and make an offer on the dream home
- Remodeling their new home
"Our ultimate goal is helping Veterans and service members find a place to call home," said Kris Farmer, chief marketing officer at Veterans United. "It was so fulfilling to watch Kameron and Brianna's story unfold as they transitioned out of the military and started a new life in a new state with a new job and a new baby. It was an honor to walk them through the process of using their VA benefit and we loved being a part of their Big Move."
