First Time Homebuyers

MHAGH offers a monthly eight-hour homebuyer education program that is strongly recommended for those who desire a more thorough understanding of the home buying process, as it increases the likelihood of a successful homeownership experience. An individual consultation prior to attending the first class is required to determine readiness.
