Pre-Purchase Counseling​

Following the completion of the Home Buyer Education class, we offer the one-on-one credit and/or financial counseling sometimes needed to prepare for the purchase of a home.

We offer up to 3 hours of assistance in the preparation of obtaining a mortgage. In order to best use this time we ask that you provide the documentation needed for our certified counselors to be prepared for your meeting before your meeting.
