Homebuyer education course

Buying your first home? Prepare with a homebuyer education course.

A homebuyer education course can offer invaluable help as you prepare to buy a home. Whether you are purchasing a property for the first time or you're getting back into the housing market, a homebuyer education course can equip you with the tools to prepare financially for this major life decision.

A homebuyer education course provides a wealth of information that can help you save money and make smarter decisions when it comes to purchasing a home. A home buyers course offers special help for first time home buyers, clearing up confusion over mortgages and providing information about special programs for first-time buyers. And all buyers will benefit from detailed information about credit reports, home inspections, home insurance and other aspects of purchasing a home.

The most important time to take a homebuyer education course is before you start looking for homes or applying for a mortgage. If you're thinking about purchasing a home, contact American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC). Our friendly credit counselors will connect you with the right homebuyer education course for your situation.
