New website to serve as a one-stop hub for information and resource for home financing needs

RESTON, Va., Feb. 28, 2018 - Guidance Residential, the leading U.S. Islamic home financing provider is making it easier for consumers to understand alternative options for financing a home. The company launched a new website that has resources for customers at all stages in the home financing process - whether they're in the planning stage, ready to apply for financing or are existing customers.

"The home financing process can be very complex," said President and CEO Khaled Elsayed. "And, when you add the need for it to comply with Shariah principles, it can get even more complex." The new website provides information that not only simplifies the process, but also clarifies what characteristics are needed for a home financing contract to truly be Shariah-compliant.

Because Muslim Americans make up an underserved market of faith-conscious consumers, there is not much information about Shariah-compliant products and services available. One goal of the new website is to address that need for more information. Another is to inform other consumers, who may not identify as Muslim American, about the option for a more consumer-friendly product.

While website visitors will find standard home financing website features, such as estimation calculators and home finance application checklists, new features will give them more insight into the Guidance Residential brand and the company's expertise in the industry. The Knowledge Center, which consists of content in multiple forms - such as e-books, podcasts and white papers, to name a few - is a new feature saturated with educational content about Islamic home financing. Customers can look into News and Events to gain a better understanding of the company and its community footprint.
