Attending homebuyer education is a great first step to owning a home—and being smart about your future. Whether you are looking to buy or already own a home, housing counseling agencies provide the tools you need to make responsible choices to address your housing needs.
Homebuyer education typically consists of an 8-hour class and an individual appointment with a housing counselor. (Online classes are available.)
