First Time Home Buyer Class
The Housing Council believes that home buyers, facing the largest single investment they will likely ever make, should have access to as much information and technical assistance as possible.
The Housing Council provides training to educate prospective home buyers on key elements of the home purchase process, including: household economics and budgeting, the wise use of credit, working with real estate agents, evaluating mortgage products, home inspections, and household maintenance and upkeep.
The education class is open to ALL homebuyers;
