Knowledge is power. That is especially true in home buying.
Benefits: Knowledge of the home-buying process breeds confidence in buyers. It may be preparing the buyer to adjust their budget to unforeseen expenses, bring light to understanding the loan qualification and programs or make a specific decision about their home insurance policy. It will mean saving time, reducing stress and it could even mean saving some money. Ultimately, the buyer will have the obligations of being a home owner such as paying the mortgage and maintain their home. The classes provide information and resources to make sure the buyer becomes a happy home owner.
What you will learn: The class shows the buyers how to become purchase-ready, familiarize themselves with the loan-qualification process, understand basic concepts of the real estate transaction and become ready as a homeowner. Topics include the pros and cons of being a homeowner, establishing a budget, fair housing laws, loan disclosures and programs, obligations of a real estate agent, inspection, foreclosure prevention and much more.
Time commitment in the classes: In-person classes are free so the buyers’ only investment is time. They run about 6 hours and the duration also depends on class participation and discussion.
