Making real estate more accessible since 2017

Clever was founded in 2017 with a singular mission: making selling or buying a home easier and more affordable for everyone. We’re constantly striving to help consumers achieve their goals and get more value from service providers along the way. And we’re obsessively building the most comprehensive and authoritative library of educational real estate content on the web.

The guides, reviews, and educational content we publish represent thousands of hours of in-depth research by our team of expert writers and editors. You can read more about our contributors on our author biographies page. Clever has been featured in leading publications like The New York Times, USA Today, LA Times, Forbes, Fox Business, NBC News, Chicago Tribune, Business Insider, Yahoo! Finance, and many more.

Our editorial policy and how we make money

At Clever, we strive to be the most trusted real estate education resource on the web. Real estate transactions are notoriously complicated, stressful, and expensive. Our content aims to quickly guide you to better choices.

Our guides and reviews involve weeks — sometimes months — of focused research. In addition to relying on our team’s own expertise, we conduct numerous interviews with subject matter experts, including realtors, property investors, attorneys, mortgage professionals, data scientists, and more. We also gather our own data via surveys, partnerships, and extensive mystery shopping. And we dig deep into customer reviews of real estate services to understand what matters to people and how different offerings stack up.

Clever values editorial objectivity. We give advice that we would follow ourselves or offer to family and friends. Sometimes one of our products will line up with a reader’s needs so they’ll sign up and we’ll earn a referral fee. We believe in the quality and value of our offerings, but also recognize they won’t always work for everyone. In these cases, we point readers toward vetted, third-party solutions and earn nothing.

There’s zero incentive for us to make bad recommendations. We only get paid if you successfully sell or buy your home. And when we give bad advice, we get bad reviews and lose readership, which hurts our bottom line.

We encourage our readers to fact check our pieces. If you see something that’s incorrect or missing, please let us know.

Reach out if you have a specific question about a real estate problem you’re grappling with. Our Concierges will do their best to help you figure out the best solution.
