Why Homebuyer Education?

Homeownership anchors vibrant communities where engaged citizens, safe neighborhoods, thriving schools and healthy people converge. It’s the place where you put down roots, grow a family, live your life and invest in your future.

But the recent housing crisis threatened the dream of homeownership for millions of Americans. How can you be sure that buying a home makes the most sense for you?

Homebuyer education can help you make the smart choices for yourself and your family. With services available online, in person and by phone, everyone in Minnesota has access to the education they need to make smart choices.

By completing a homebuyer education program, you may also qualify for special financing programs or down payment assistance that will make homeownership more affordable.
