Home buyers guide

Looking for a home buyers guide? ACCC can help.

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions you'll ever make, so it makes sense to consult a home buyers guide before you start the home buying process.

A home buyers guide can provide advice for first time buyers as well as buyers who are getting back into the market. Buying a house isn't something you do every day, so even if you've purchased homes in the past, it makes sense to take advantage of the home buying tips, strategies and homebuyer education a home buyers guide can offer.

From information on complicated mortgage products to a breakdown of the steps involved in purchasing a property, a home buyers guide can help you get a handle on everything you need to know to make smart decisions as you realize your dream of homeownership.

When searching for comprehensive advice as you jump into the housing market, American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) offers a home buyers guide that's available both online and in-person.
