Help for first time buyers
ACCC provides valuable help for first time buyers.
First time house buyers need a lot of information, and American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) offers convenient help for first time buyers through related courses, counseling sessions and free educational materials.
Buying a house is a big deal. The process is complex, the decisions are hard and the transaction involves a lot of money. First time buyers are often overwhelmed by the details and almost always wish they had more information before they started the process.
At ACCC, we're a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping consumers achieve financial health. Along with credit counseling and low-cost debt management services, we offer help for first time buyers that enables you to make smarter decisions as you enter the real estate market.
Our counselors provide advice for first time buyers on a wide range of topics, from organizing your finances and managing your credit rating to reviewing mortgage offers and determining how much money to put down.
We also offer a homebuyer education course that provides help for first time buyers as well as seasoned buyers who are getting back into the housing market again.
