Products and Services[edit]

ZeroDown uses an algorithm to determine the buying power of a given customer. Based on this buying power calculation, ZeroDown shows previews of homes that best fit that customer’s profile. ZeroDown then buys the desired home, allows the customer to move in and pay as they go, building up credits they can use to purchase the home.[9]

Starting after year 2 and up to 5 years, a consumer can buy the home from ZeroDown using the credits they have built up.
