Homebuyer Education

Home Stretch Workshops 

 Gain the confidence you need to buy a home of your own! 

Home Stretch is an educational tool and should be number one on every first-time homebuyer's "to-do list". Workshops are taught by local housing professionals with up to date information on the world of home buying and homeownership. Our volunteer's instructors come from a variety of housing backgrounds to include: mortgage lenders, realtors, credit counselors, loan closers and home inspectors. The greatest benefit to Home Stretch participants is having the opportunity to ask important, relevant questions that will help them in their home buying process.

Workshop curriculum includes:

  • Budget and spending plans

  • Different mortgage products

  • Shopping for a home

  • Home inspections

  • The closing process
