Homebuyer counseling agencies are your trusted guide to become a homeowner. As we reinvest in our neighborhoods to address the impact of widespread foreclosures, it is critical that buyers are truly prepared for the responsibilities of homeownership.
YOUR HOMEBUYER COUNSELOR
It’s important to take the time to understand how to manage the financial obligations before you. Each the counselors listed offers a variety of classes and trainings, as well as one-on-one counseling. Several agencies offer the NSP-required, HUD-certified, eight (8) hour homebuyer education class, while others refer clients to their peers for classes. These agencies are primarily supported by grants, so you can benefit from their services with little or no cost to you. We encourage you to ask each agency how it works when you make your call.
