How Do Homebuyer Workshops Help First-Time Buyers?
In this video Maria Gaitan and Donnie Witherspoon explain how the homebuying process can be complex and even intimidating if you don’t know what to expect. HUD-approved homebuyer workshops help firs-time buyers learn about the process so they know how navigate it to get approved.
They tell them specifically what they need to do to qualify for a loan and then what they need to do to get into a home – for example, get a home inspection, get a survey, get an appraisal.
When individuals come to our workshops they get to hear from industry experts. At the end of the workshop they receive a certificate of completion, which is necessary for some down payment assistance or closing cost assistance.
A first-time homebuyer tells them exactly what they need to do so they have realistic expectations for their real estate agent.
