Pre-purchase Homebuyers

This comprehensive course will teach you what it takes to become a successful homeowner, from seeking pre-approval for a mortgage to making an offer, to the closing process.  Individual One-on-One counseling sessions are also available as part of this class.

This course is highly recommended to any potential homebuyer who is considering the purchase of their first home.

Individuals who complete this course will be provided with a Certificate of Completion to verify that they may have satisfied the education requirements of their mortgage loan financing.


Course Overview

In a step-by-step format, participants examine their housing needs, analyze their financial situations, and learn strategies to improve financial management, in an effort to better prepare for home ownership.
