Quiz: How much do you know about the home-buying process?

A Zillow survey found that the majority of people tested know more about celebrities than real estate. How do you compare?

It’s one of the most consequential financial decisions of our lives, yet many of us begin our home-buying journey unprepared. Do you know more about celebrity love lives and football than you do about real estate? If so, you’re not alone. In a recent Zillow survey, participants were quizzed on their knowledge of the housing market versus pop culture trivia. The result? Nearly 51% percent of those surveyed knew more about kickoffs and breakups than appraisals and pre-approvals 

If you’re considering homeownership, going in with knowledge of the industry could help lessen the stress of buying. Take the following quiz to see how your real estate know-how compares to your knowledge of pop culture topics.

No matter your results, Zillow can help you find and win a home. Here are some helpful links to get you started:
