Homebuyer Education

Housing counselors are knowledgeable, dedicated experienced professionals. They are certified in the homebuying process and specialize in helping families buy homes. You can meet one-on-one with a housing counselor to:
  • Guide you through financial preparation.
  • Understand loan products.
  • Find the right home.
  • Maintain your home after purchase.
You might not be sure if you are ready to buy a home. Perhaps you need help with your current budget. If so, contact a housing counselor to walk you through financial literacy counseling. This will help you:
  • Understand the importance of a budget.
  • Saving for your future.
  • Understand what it takes to be “mortgage ready.”
  • Learn what it takes to have a sustainable household.
Get the tools to maintain your budget now and for the future. OHCS partners with homeownership centers throughout the state.
