Presented by the Federal National Mortgage Association, this 1973 promotional film informs viewers on how to buy a new home. Shot in Austin, the film was produced by the Motion Picture Center of the Radio-Television-Film Department at the University of Texas at Austin and features university students and faculty. The film follows the story of a newlywed couple and their struggles, often comedic in nature, with finding a place of their own. As first-time home buyers, they find themselves lost and overwhelmed. However, they follow various steps outlined by a voiceover narrator to facilitate the process. This short film brings a lighthearted element to a serious topic and even includes a police chase, motorcycle gang, and eccentric real estate agent.
