First-time Homebuyer Workshop

We offer a comprehensive pre-purchase education program to help consumers through the entire homeownership process, equipping homeowners with knowledge to make sound decisions regarding homeownership.

The Pre-Purchase Orientation workshop educates clients on the following topics: the homebuying process (including discussion on the role of the buyer/seller and the various professionals involved), questions to assess readiness to buy, preparing for home purchase, understanding credit, mortgage financing, tax relief programs, predatory lending and fair housing issues.

This clinic is intended to help prospective homebuyers understand the home purchase process and allow them to determine their readiness to purchase a home in Philadelphia and surrounding areas in Pennsylvania. The workshop is designed to educate people on budgeting and credit issues, with the goal of preparing them for home purchase.

Following the presentation, clients are given the opportunity to schedule an appointment to meet with a Housing Counselor regarding one of the following areas: Pre-Purchase counseling or Money/Credit counseling. This course includes one-on-one counseling at no cost. Upon completion of this course, consumers will receive a certificate at their counseling session. Certification meets the requirement for some Home Ownership Assistance and Specialized Loan Programs.

If you have any questions please feel free to call (215) 456-1662 us.
