First Time Homebuyer Education 

The purpose of First Time Homebuyer Education is to teach potential homeowners about the process of purchasing a home. The successful completion of a First Time Homebuyer Course is often a requirement for many down payment assistance and loan programs. This is a great program for both new and experienced home buyers and provides a good opportunity to become a more educated home buyer and homeowner.

Topics include:

  • Budgeting for your household and determining affordability
  • Understanding and evaluating your credit and how to use credit wisely
  • Understanding the title insurance and closing process
  • Working with a real estate agent who really grasps your needs and price range
  • Understanding the scope and value of home inspections
  • Choosing insurance policies
  • Maintaining your home so it continues to be an appreciating asset
