Attending our homebuyer workshop is the first step for many individuals in the process. The workshop is based on a comprehensive curriculum developed by NeighborWorks America, and segments are delivered by guest speakers such as lenders, realtors, insurance agents and home inspectors.  Participants leave the workshop with an understanding of the mortgage loan process, credit reporting, how to find a home, insurance, home inspections as well as information about various downpayment assistance options.  Workshops are typically held monthly (15 per year) and last a minimum of eight hours.  Certificates are issued at the end of the class.

DHIC counselors can provide guidance as to when might be best for you to participate. Attending the workshop is a required step of our counseling process and is also required by several providers of first-time homebuyer loan products.

An online homebuyer education option, eHome America, is also available for clients who prefer to complete the course at their own pace.
