Homebuyer Training - DC (English)
Interested in buying your first home?
This class is given in English at our DC office. To take the class in Spanish, please register for a class at our MD office.
In this group workshop you will learn how to successfully navigate each step of the home-buying process in DC or Maryland and obtain a smart mortgage. You will also learn how your credit, personal budgeting, and personal finances impact your future success. LEDC invites a host of speakers --among them a loan officer, real estate agent, insurance agent, and home inspector - to provide an instructional walk-through of the homeownership process. Information will also be provided on programs to assist first-time homebuyers in DC and MD.
This training meets the requirements for lender and government programs that require first time homebuyer education from a HUD Approved Housing Counseling Agency.
(If you are a DC resident and are interested in learning whether you may qualify for HPAP assistance, sign up first for the “Orientation to First-time Home Buying and the Programs that can Help.”)
