how to select the right home for your family and budget,
preparing to qualify for a loan and finding the financing that best meets your needs,
navigating the technical aspects of the process such as reviewing the purchase contracts, working with the inspector and reviewing the appraisals, and
the types of down payment assistance available,

CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION
All clients will receive their Homebuyer’s Certificate on class day, upon successful completion of the First Time Homebuyers’ Class.
Included in the cost of the class is the opportunity to attend Individualized Homebuyer Counseling. Counseling sessions are held Monday-Friday and are usually available for the week immediately following each class. You will have an opportunity to sign up for your counseling session during your class. After completing counseling, please provide a Loan Estimate to your counselor.
Please note that beginning in 2019, we will be providing soft credit pulls to all counseling clients at no cost. This new addition to counseling will provide each client with a full Tri-Merge Credit Report and all three Credit Scores from the three Credit Bureaus. This credit pull will be for counseling purposes only and will not affect a client's credit score.
