Why Homebuyer Education?

The recent housing crisis has threatened the dream of homeownership for millions of Americans. Foreclosures, falling property values and tighter lending regulations have made financing more difficult to get.

How can you be sure that buying a home makes the most sense for you?

The answer is education!

In Minnesota, you have education options: in-person or online. In addition, by completing the program, you may qualify for special financing programs or down payment assistance that makes homeownership more affordable.
