Specialization


Guidance Residential specializes in Shariah-compliant home financing in the U.S. Our unique Declining Balance Co-ownership Program was created under the guidance of seven globally renowned Shariah scholars and eighteen U.S. law firms to ensure it meets strict adherence to legal jurisprudence of the Islamic faith and conforms to U.S. legal and regulatory requirements.

Differentiation

Guidance Residential's Declining Balance Co-ownership Program is based on a partnership model rather than a lender-borrower relationship. Unlike traditional home financing, homebuyers enter an equitable, Shariah-compliant partnership contract and enjoys benefits of home ownership without compromising faith-based principles.

Real Estate Agent Services

Guidance Residential partners with its sister company, Guidance Home Services, to connect pre-approved buyers who do not have a real estate agent with highly qualified local realtors from among their network of pre-screened agents. After matching a buyer with the right agent, Guidance Home Services uses a concierge team to monitor the relationship to ensure progress is being made and the overall experience of our buyers is an enjoyable one.
