About Home Buyers Round Table
Home buying is a stressful process that benefits from a helping hand. This fact caused founders to organize the Home Buyers Round Table of Dane County Inc. (HBRT) in December 1997 to help would-be homeowners overcome two significant barriers to home ownership:
- Limited knowledge of the home buying process, and
- Lenders unfamiliar with down payment assistance programs.
HBRT continues these efforts today. We strive to meet the needs of low- to moderate-income potential home buyers through education, counseling, and support of both home buyers and industry professionals, and through targeted programs that increase knowledge of the home-buying process.
We provide meaningful, current education through monthly member meetings, free education classes for potential homebuyers and annual down payment assistance training for lenders and REALTORS®. We offer Lender Down Payment Assistance Training in partnership with the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Association every February and Realtor Down Payment Assistance training in partnership with the REALTORS® Association of South Central Wisconsin every March.
The Home Buyers Round Table of Dane County is a collaboration of housing industry representatives that promote homeownership through education and counseling to low and moderate-income families. We believe homeownership will increase family stability and financial security; stabilize and strengthen communities and neighborhoods; and generate jobs and stimulate economic growth.
