Description

Thinking of becoming a homeowner? Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley is here to help! Purchasing a home for the first time can be daunting for anybody. Where do I start? Can I afford to buy? How do I qualify for a loan?

To help answer these questions and more, Habitat is proud to offer a First-Time Homebuyer Class. This is a HUD-certified class designed for anyone thinking about buying or ready to buy a first home. A certificate of completion for the class will be issued.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Advantages and disadvantages of homeownership

  • How much home can I afford?

  • Credit and credit scores

  • Negotiating the purchase

  • Shopping for a loan and the loan process

  • Closing process and documents

  • Obligations as a homeowner

  • Household budgeting
