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 every day.  We offer a comprehensive homebuyer education class in a fun and supportive atmosphere.  The course meets on Tuesday evenings virtually or at our main or satellite office.  The fee for the class is $50; scholarships are available for income-eligible Clark County households.  In addition, a counselor can schedule an optional one-on-one session with each student to review their budget and personal credit report.  The counselor can also assist students with credit repair.  Clients pay only for the cost of a credit report, if ordered. 

What you will learn about: 

  • Money management and budgeting
  • Is homeownership for me
  • How much can I afford to spend for a home
  • Shopping for a home
  • Selecting a realtor and putting in an offer or contract
  • Selecting a lender and what is needed to get approved for a loan
  • How to avoid a predatory lender
  • What to expect at closing
  • Home maintenance


What Prevents People from Buying a Home?

  • Lack of Knowledge about Home Buying

             NHP conducts comprehensive homebuyer education classes.

  • Lack of Funds for Down Payment and Closing Costs

             NHP provides down payment assistance for eligible homebuyers when funding is available.

            Unfortunately, this is not currently funded. Call 937-322-4623 for other options and more information.

  • Poor Credit / Money Management

             NHP provides homebuyers with financial coaching and financial fitness workshops.

Homebuyer Education graduates say:

“If you want to know how to buy a home, call them! It will make the process easier.”

“You need to take this class, not only for buying a home but for the credit education.”

The class is excellent; you learn a lot and gain confidence.”

“The staff are friendly. It was a safe place to express my concerns without being judged.”
