Preparing For HomeOwnership Workshop

April 3 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

$60

THIS COURSE IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO INCLUSIONARY HOUSING BUYERS WHO CLOSE ESCROW PRIOR TO APRIL 18.  FOR ANYONE ELSE INTERESTED IN THE COURSE, WE WILL ANNOUNCE OUR NEW COURSE SCHEDULE IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

Please note that the cutoff date to sign up for this class will be on: March 31ST at 5PM

Preparing for HomeOwnership is an 8 hour workshop for prospective homebuyers planning to purchase a home ideally, within 6 months. Many loan programs accept this class to satisfy their homebuyer education requirement. We cover a range of topics, including understanding affordability, budgeting, mortgage insurance, home improvement, upkeep, refinancing, closing costs, down payment assistance, and more.

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the health and safety of our community and our
staff continues to be our highest priority.  Still, we are committed to providing housing and
education services in every capacity possible.  In order to be least disruptive to our customers,
we are transitioning to offer remote, virtual counseling options. We are going to use Join.Me to
conduct your Preparing for Home Ownership course.
