Opening the Door to Homeownership

Ready to buy a home, but don’t know where to start?


Opening the Door to Homeownership is exactly what you need to make the home buying process easier to understand. This course will help you determine whether you are ready for homeownership and prepare you for all aspects of purchasing a home. You’ll get information about what is involved when buying a home including the kinds of loan programs available, what lenders consider when deciding if you are a creditworthy buyer, and types of fees included in the process.

Make sure you are prepared financially to handle a mortgage before you purchase a home. This program includes follow-up financial counseling with a certified credit counselor. Over a six month period, the majority of our clients experience a 10% reduction in debt, 10% increase in savings and credit score.

Classes are limited to 20 and fill up quickly. Lunch is included in the cost. Participants will receive a workbook and be eligible to receive a certificate upon completion of the course and a Pre-Purchase Counseling session with one of our counselors. There is a $100 fee for the Pre-Purchase Counseling session which is conducted on a separate date than the class.

Our goal is to make certain you are mortgage and home ready!

Course fees:

Opening the Door to Home Ownership (6.5 hr. In-person course) free of charge. Lunch included due to the generous sponsorship of UnitedOne Credit Union.
