Homebuyer Education

Turn your dream into a reality

You know that buying a home is one of the most important investments that you will ever make. The question is–where do you start? Being a first-time homebuyer can be stressful and downright scary. Neighborhood Housing Partnership (NHP) understands how intimidating this process can be and works with new homebuyers everyday.

NHP has developed a comprehensive, eight-hour class to help prospective homebuyers learn about the homebuying process and avoid many of the common pitfalls. The course typically consists of three weekday evening sessions with a qualified instructor. Participants learn in a fun and upbeat atmosphere while forming bonds and sharing tips and experiences with one another. In addition, each participant will have a confidential one-on-one session to review their credit report and counseling to address any credit problems. The cost for the program is $50.00 with a nominal charge for instructional materials and credit report. If you are thinking about buying a home, contact our office to find out how you can become an informed homebuyer.

What you will learn:

  • Money management and budgeting
  • How much can I afford to spend for a home
  • Shopping for a home
  • Selecting a realtor
  • Selecting a lender
  • How to avoid a predatory lender
  • What to expect at closing
  • Home maintenance
