Buying a home can often feel overwhelming and it doesn’t need to! To bring some ease to the process, we highly encourage prospective homeowners to participate in our NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions (NHS) Homebuyer Education Classes. These classes are incredibly valuable and helpful to anyone seeking to purchase their first home.
During this eight-hour training, we introduce first-time homebuyers* to information needed to successfully purchase their home, including choosing a realtor, finding the right home, repairing credit, securing financing, home inspections, insurance, and maintaining a home. The class also provides information on the range of programs and financing resources available to first-time buyers.
The NHS homebuyer education course has received a Seal of Approval from the Massachusetts Homeownership Collaborative, enabling participants who receive a certificate of completion to access several special mortgage products.
Whether you’re ready to buy now, or hope to be ready within a couple years, this class will provide information and support so you understand your realistic options and what’s possible to achieve.
*Anyone who has not owned a home in three or more years can be considered a first-time homebuyer.
