HOME BUYER EDUCATION

Our Home Buyer Education Workshop should be your first step on your road to homeownership. Home Buyer Education Workshops are held monthly and satisfy requirements for a homeownership education certificate to qualify for down payment assistance provided by local and state agencies. Each class lasts a total of 4-8 hours and covers topics such as how to select a realtor, types of mortgages and how to choose the right one for you, property taxes, the right home for you, home maintenance, and more.

  • Classes cost $30 per participant

  • In order to receive a certificate, all participants must register for the class separately under their own name, sign in and out of the course, and complete all four hours of the class session.

  • If you have a hardship that prevents you from being able to afford the registration fee, please contact our office at 517-575-5833.
