Free (Virtual) Homebuyer Education Classes

Buying a home is a big decision, and it’s essential to be prepared before you start shopping. Home buying education classes can help you understand the process, from getting pre-approved for a mortgage to making an offer and closing the deal. They can also help you avoid costly mistakes.

Home-buying education classes help you understand your finances and determine how much you can afford to spend on a home and how much you’ll need for a down payment. Classes can also teach you about common pitfalls to avoid, such as overpaying for a home or not getting a proper inspection. Some lenders also offer down payment assistance programs to buyers who complete home-buying education classes.

Finally, you’ll gain confidence. The more you know about the home-buying process, the more confident you’ll feel when you’re out there shopping for a home.
