The first step to creating successful homeowners is education. Educated homeowners stay in their homes longer, take pride in their properties, and have one-third less foreclosures. NeighborWorks Montana’s network partners across the state offer in-depth classes on all aspects of homeownership.
All classes meet HUD requirements and are taught by National Center for Homeownership Education and Counseling Certified educators. Completion of a certified homebuyer class is a requirement for many specialized loan products, including NeighborWorks Montana loans. To receive a certificate, participants must attend all sections of the course. Courses are at least 8 hours in length and are offered over the course of a full day or two-to-three evenings depending on the organization.
Topics covered in these classes include:
• Assessing Readiness to Buy a Home
• Budgeting and Credit
• Financing a Home
• Selecting a Home
• Maintaining a Home and Finances
• Financial Resources
