Home Buyer Classes – Series of 2
August 8, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Home Buyer Education, particularly in-person, is proven to increase the likelihood of successful homeownership. Home Buyers Round Table and Movin’ Out invite you to join us: learn all the aspects of the home buying process from local experts in a safe environment.
With 7 hours of classroom instruction presented over two consecutive Tuesday nights by industry experts, as well as 1 hour of individual counseling with certified housing counselors, this program prepares you for a successful home search, purchase and ownership experience.
Night 1: Content experts teach you about: credit, money management, down payment assistance and mortgage lending. Learn how credit works and how to improve your score, how to be sure you’re not buying too much house, what down payment you might be eligible for, and all about the lending process.
Night 2: Experts include realtors, home inspectors, insurance agents and closing agents. Learn how to choose a realtor, shop for a home, hire a home inspector, choose insurance, and what to expect at your closing. You’ll actually see some of the documents you’ll be signing – and have them explained.
Housing counseling: to complete the program, you’ll sit down with an experienced housing counselor who will help you bring all of this information and focus it on your situation.
This home buyer education meets requirements for down payment assistance and lending programs.
