Home Buyer Education Workshop

This 8-hour homebuyer workshop guides participants through the complex, confusing and sometimes overwhelming process of purchasing a home. We believe educated buyers are less likely to become victims of predatory lending, fair housing discrimination, or to become a foreclosure risk. Topics include: finding the right mortgage product; understanding the costs of ownership; and preparing for closing.

Essentials for Buying Your First Home

Available at www.clearpointu.org/firsthome, this 8-hour, online pre-purchase program is designed to prepare and position first time home buyers for lasting success as a homeowner. The six hour education component includes twenty-one courses, a pre-test, post-test and certificate of completion. The two hour counseling component allows participants to complete a comprehensive, online pre-purchase housing counseling session with a certified housing counselor.
