First Time Homebuyer Counseling & Group Education
As a HUD-Approved housing counseling agency, HDSW’s Neighborhood Preservation Company offers individual and group counseling sessions to renters interested in purchasing their first home.
The goal is to help participants understand the home purchasing process, how to budget, resolve pending credit problems, and most importantly, avoid predatory lending and mortgage scams.
Anyone interested in receiving pre-purchase counseling must first attend a Homebuyer Counseling Orientation. The Orientation covers the following topics: Down payment and closing cost assistance, mortgage products available for first time homebuyers, Budget and Credit, and an overview of the closing process.
