Homebuyer Education Counselling & Workshops

Our homebuyer education is available to any Ohio resident. Meet one- on-one with one of our certified counselors to discuss your personal housing goal, your budget, your credit score, downpayment assistance programs which might work for you and set up an action plan specific to your situation. Homebuyers who are ready to learn more about the process of purchasing a home, and the importance of each professional individual and step in that process, may go on to attend one of our Homebuyer Education Workshops. Our workshops are conducted by one of our HUD Certified housing counselors and often include presentations by other professionals in the housing industry. Those who complete the individual counseling, and the workshop are one step closer to qualifying for downpayment assistance. Our participants often report back to us how grateful they were for the information and the confidence it gave them when buying their first home.

Our Homebuyer Education topics include:

Foreclosure Prevention Orientation

Are you at risk of foreclosure or just behind on your mortage payments? Attend our foreclosure prevention orientation to get one-on-one assistance and guidance. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their situation and options available to them. Our counselors are fully trained to provide you with assistance in avoiding foreclosure, including working with your lender, preparing you for mediation, and discussing other available options. We offer an orientation that provides general information about the types of resources and assistance that are available to prevent foreclosure from happening.

Please bring to the Orientation your most recent mortgage statement, information that will assist you in completing a monthly budget worksheet, and a hardship letter if you’ve written one to your lender.
