Virtual Preparing For HomeOwnership Workshop: Saturday November 14, 2020

November 14 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


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, we have moved to a virtual platform called Join.me for this Workshop
